US Mint Ultra-High Relief Gold Coin Sales Shine

by admin on August 7, 2009

in Collector Coin Sales

Ultra High Relief $20 Gold coin sales glowed. Collectors purchased many more of the gold pieces than in weeks past — just one shy of 3,800. As a comparison, typical weekly sales have been below 1,000.

Why the change? The increased demand is a reflection of collectors being able to buy more. The US Mint raised UHR limits from one coin per household to ten. The total sold now stands at more than 75,000.

Other Mint collector gold coin figures were less cheerful. All but one of the First Spouse Coins declined modestly. And for the most part, the Mint’s silver products, with the exception of the blazing-hot bullion American Silver Eagles, slowed as well. Next week’s Professional Life Penny launch in Illinois should bring some sparkles to upcoming numbers.

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

American Samoa Quarter Sales

Bags and rolls of American Samoa Quarters

Coin collectors aggressively purchased bags and rolls of American Samoa Quarters during the initial launch week, but totals are slightly lower than the inaugural several day sales of the prior Guam quarter-dollars.

That could change. The US Mint just posted new coin production figures on Monday. American Samoa quarter mintages are actually lower than those of Guam. In fact, they are lowest of any single quarter design in generations, which should make them more desirable to collectors who eye relative scarcity levels.

Coming back to the sales numbers, two-roll sets are shining with…
