US Mint coinsFour new items appeared on the United States Mint’s coin sales figures, but none of them were the top story. The coin that stole the limelight was the 2010-P Hot Springs 5 oz Silver Uncirculated Coin that had 134 left on Sunday, May 8 and then reached its maximum on Thursday, May 12.

The four new items were the Mount Hood Quarter Three-Coin Set which debuted at 11,282, the American Gold Eagle Uncirculated Coin which opened at 1,098, and two new Eliza Johnson First Spouse Gold Coins. Her proof version started with 1,331 and her uncirculated hit 777.

Several sets had a good week. The 2011 Proof Set gained 11,363 and the 2011 Mint Set added 8,663. All four silver sets were made available on Friday, May 6 and each one received positive gains. The 2011 Silver Proof let the silver group with 4,831.

Quarter Set, Eagle and Spouse Coins Debut

The United States Mint has published the debuting sales figures for three products that were introduced last week — the Mount Hood Quarter Three-Coin Set, the 2011 Uncirculated Gold Eagle, and the Eliza Johnson First Spouse Gold Coins. The Uncirculated Gold Eagle launched Thursday, and is likely the product many collectors are most interested in given its two-year absence from the Mint’s numismatic portfolio. Its debut sales were 1,098 as of Monday, which was slower than perhaps expected. Sales were pressured no doubt by an opening price that was much higher than any past issue and a …

Eliza Johnson Coin Debut

It has been 22 weeks since the United States Mint last released new First Spouse Gold Coins, but the long wait did not improve the debut sales of the Eliza Johnson Coins. Die hard fans of the series picked up 2,108 of them between their launch on Thursday, May 5 and Sunday, May 8. Eliza Johnson’s inaugural figures were slower than several recent releases, as the table below demonstrates. Mary Lincoln and Buchanan’s Liberty issues both did exceedingly well during their debut, while Johnson’s was less than half of either of them. Perhaps the record high price of gold put a damper on the …

5 Oz Silver Uncirculated Coins Gone

Making headlines is the Hot Springs Five Ounce Silver Uncirculated Coin sell out and the fast moving American Silver Eagle bullion coins.

5-Ouncers Don’t Quite Sell Out

The Mint just could not quite sell out of its supplies of America the Beautiful 5-ounce silver coins in this reporting period. The collector version of the Hot Springs design nearly made it to the 27,000 number available but is still 134 short of a sellout. The coin was still offered on the Mint’s Web site May 11. For the two 2011 bullion versions, the Gettysburg and Glacier, the numbers are 1,300 shy of initial supplies of each. The Mint can strike more, but has not yet indicated …
