in Collector Coin Sales

There were several products that stood out in the latest US Mint collector coin sales figures. Most talked about were the Guam quarters. The newest 2009 commemorative quarters was recently issued and the first week of their sales in bags and quarters were high. Mintage figures were also made available.

Collector gold coins have performed reasonable well of late. No doubt the climb in gold prices toward $1,000 an ounce had helped. Sales of UHR $20 and seven of the eight First Spouse Gold Coins were better than normal.

Sales of Lincoln Rail Splitter penny rolls have eased, but not subsided. Nearly 240,000 of the two-roll sets were sold in about two weeks.

Finally, demand for the silver 2009 quarter set also increased. The non silver proof set was recently released, which likely contributed to the gains.

The very latest US Mint coin sales statistics are always added on Coin Sales Figures throughout the week. The following articles, however, provide detailed insights and analysis about the latest changes.

First Spouse Gold Coins Sales

First Spouse Coin Sales Figures Sales picked up for all but one of the available eight US Mint First Spouse Gold Coins.

Silver Coin Sales: DC & US Territories Quarters Silver Proof Set Shine

Sales Stats imageWith the exception of the DC & US Territories Quarters Silver Proof Set, silver coin sales were mostly lackluster based on the latest US Mint stats.

The quarters silver proof set surged with an additional 12,238 sold for a total of 163,703. Not bad considering the sets have only been on sale since March 23. Why the increase?

Guam Quarter Sales Figures

Guam Sales Stats imageIt is safe to say that the low production numbers for Puerto Rico quarters were a source of conversation for those in the industry a couple of months back.

For those who were surprised at those historically low levels, they will be shocked to hear of the drop in production for the Guam quarter. And needless to say, the latest US Mint Guam sales figures show demand for the quarters during their first week of sales in bags and rolls is stronger than that experienced by the Puerto Rico quarters.

Figures from the US Mint released Tuesday show that only 87,600,000 Guam quarters were produced, with 45 million of those struck in Philadelphia and 42.6 million at Denver. That accounts for only a bit over 63% of what was issued for the Puerto Rico quarters.
