Braille Silver Dollar Sales Near 41,000 in First Week

US Mint silver coin sales statsSilver coin sales climbed over the last several days, helped by the Braille Silver Dollars and the 2009 Quarters Silver Proof Set releases.

A total of 40,844 Braille coins and 55,160 quarter proof sets were sold, according to the latest US Mint sales stats.

In other silver coin news, Lincoln Silver Dollars sold out. While the proof version is still listed in the Mint online store, there is a statement saying any new orders will only be processed when an old one is cancelled.

Interestingly, Lincoln silver coins now have a total sales figure of 465,614. Only 500,000 are allowed with 50,000 supposedly reserved for a special 5-coin proof set. The numbers are obviously not adding up with 15,614 extra coins sold. It would appear the Mint expects that many cancellations/returns or that fewer special sets will be minted.

Sales of the 50 State Quarters Silver Proof Set ended Monday, March 30. The final figures look to be standing at 429,021.

Here are the latest numbers:
