The clear leaders in US Mint collector product sales were the new proof and uncirculated American Veterans Disabled for Life Silver Dollars. Their initial sales numbers exceeded 66,000 and 32,000 respectively.

The 2010 Presidential Dollar Proof Sets placed third, bringing in more than 25,000 and making their new total over 326,000. The dollar set hasn’t even been available a full month, and already its total reached just over half of the 2009 set total of 627,925.

Gold sales were mixed. More than 500 First Spouse gold coins sold in a week, and beat their prior sales by 100. American Buffalo Gold Proof sales, however, slowed down. About 400 sold, compared to over 700 in the last report. The US Mint increased these coins’ prices in the middle of the week, on Feb. 24.

The Lincoln’s eventually sold out. The Braille’s did not, but their figures were solid, nevertheless. In other products, both silver sets outperformed their previous weekly gains …
