US Mint Sales: Proof Silver Eagles Still Most Desired

by Coin Collecting News on July 21, 2011

2011 American Silver Eagle Proof Coin

Collectors shopped and bought US Mint coins in larger quantities according to the latest round of sales figures. In fact, 72 numismatic products pegged higher gains than the previous week. The overachieving items were not just limited to one type but were across the board with surges in silver, gold, platinum, and clad offerings.

The most desired coin was the 2011 Proof Silver Eagle. Buyers picked up 52,050 of them during their second full week of their availability. After 18 days on the market, 460,041 sold or 53% of last year’s 860,000 mintage. The US Mint has not indicated how many or how long they will produce this year’s issue of the popular coins.

The Grand Canyon and the Yosemite National Park 5 Oz Silver Uncirculated Coins were still available when the US Mint recorded their sales figures on Monday, July 18. At that time, 4,974 Grand Canyon 5 oz. coins and 260 Yosemite coins were left. Since then, however, a waiting list notice for the Yosemite coin reappeared on its online ordering page, meaning the US Mint accepted those last 260 orders and all future orders will be filled on a first come, first serve basis if any previous orders are cancelled.

As for the Abraham Lincoln Presidential $1 Coin & First Spouse Medal Set that catapulted by 5,063 in the last round, it plummeted by -4,946 in this one … as expected. The two best selling coin and medal sets were the new Ulysses S. Grant and Andrew Johnson ones, with 763 and 133.

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 Monday, July 18, 2011. Bullion coin tables are found toward the bottom, with the most recent sales as of Wednesday, July 20. (NLA = No Longer Available.)
