US Mint Sales: 2011 Proof Sets Beat Uncirculated Mint Sets

by Coin Collecting News on February 22, 2011

US Mint Coin Sales ReportThe 2011 Proof Set did it again. It outperformed its weekly sales increase for the second week in a row. Even more impressive was the fact that its sales beat out the uncirculated 2011 Mint Set that just launched on February 8.

According to the latest United States Mint sales figures, the Proof Set rose by 78,551. Previously it climbed 73,789. January 11 was its first selling date. The 2011 Mint Set, on the other hand, gained 20,053 during its second week on the charts. It debuted at 191,391.

Demand for the 2011 Silver Proof Set eased a little. Collectors took in 14,116 in this round versus 24,630 previously. The new total hit 271,264.

Also easing was demand for US Army Commemorative Coins. The proof Army silver dollars propelled the most with 7,951 after advancing 14,541 in the previous report. The proof clad half-dollar followed with 4,373. Its previous upward move had been 9,301.

US Mint 2011 Kennedy Half Dollar Bags & Rolls debuted on Tuesday, February 15. Between its launch and Sunday, February 20, opening sales were 2,114 for the 200-coin bags and 8,841 for the Two-Roll Sets. Although the 2010 strikes were pulled from the Mint’s line-up, the old Two-Roll Set picked up 310 in its final days while the 200-coin bags declined by -2.

Two unusual events occurred in this report. First, the US Mint did not publish the latest total for the 2010 Proof Set for the second straight week. The set is still available on the Mint’s website. The second interesting thing was the huge decline in Abraham Lincoln’s Presidential $1 Coin Cover total. It was reduced by -787 and winded up at 28,165. Normally, Lincoln’s covers grew by four or five hundred.

In the bullion arena, Silver Eagles showed no signs of slowing down. The US Mint sold 894,000 since last Tuesday to its Authorized Purchasers compared to the prior round’s 768,500 jump. February’s new total landed at 2,599,500, and annual sales rolled in at 9,021,500.

The first three columns of the table below provide weekly US Mint sales increases between the listed time periods, offering a sense of recent trends. The final column provides the latest US Mint sales totals as of Sunday, February 20, 2011. Bullion coin tables are found toward the bottom, with the most recent sales as of Tuesday, February 22.
