US Mint coinsUS Mint sales figures revealed a continued overall slowdown as collectors wait for new 2010 arrivals. Most 2009 collector product sales declined, but three products surged.

The three to outperform their prior report figures were the US Mint Proof set, Lincoln Presidency Cent Two-Roll sets, and First Spouse 24-karat Gold Coins. The Mint’s Proof set rose by 7,168 versus the prior 4,971; the Presidency Cents climbed 4,990, compared to 3,426; and First Spouse coins picked up 733 all together, beating last week’s 407.

Of all the collector products, only one retreated with a negative change. The 2009 DC & US Territories Quarters Proof Set was adjusted by -6,809. One can assume it was either an accounting correction or perhaps an unusual amount of customer returns.
