US Mint Sales: 2011 Army Silver Dollars Debut at 67,593

February 9, 2011 by · 1 Comment 

US Army Silver Dollar Proof and Uncirculated CoinsAnother highly anticipated 2011-dated silver product debuted in the most recent US Mint weekly sales report. The 2011 United States Army Silver Dollar Commemorative Coins hit the street on Monday, January 31, and they racked up 67,593 across both proof and uncirculated options.

Broken out, the proofs won the race with 46,895, and the uncirculated trailed with a solid 20,698. Not a bad start, considering these silver dollars are competing with other commemorative coins of a similar theme, the U.S. Army clad half-dollars and U.S. Army $5 gold coins. Each of the three denominations have different obverse and reverse designs, while all of them are celebrating the establishment of the Army in 1775.

For reference, a table of US Mint sales follows for the gold and clad Army coins (stats for the Army Silver Dollars are further below).

Army Commemorative Coin Sales Debut Figures

$5 Gold Proof 7,861 10,906 100,000
$5 Gold Uncirculated 3,045
Clad Half-Dollar Proof 30,161 46,690 750,000
Clad Half-Dollar Uncirculated 19,528


Collectors continued to go after the new 2011 Silver Proof Sets. In one week’s time, sales climbed 23,151. The set was released on January 25, and as of Sunday, February 6, the Mint sold 232,518. It will likely take another week to pass the 2010 set’s four-day inaugural sales of 241,656.

In this round, the 2010 Silver Proof Set grew by 3,213 and its total struck 532,306. Its two previous weekly advances were 2,868 and 2,711, so demand appears to be growing.

The 2010 America the Beautiful Quarters Silver Proof Sets™ also quickened their pace by picking up 1,559 as compared to their prior weeks’ 963 and 1,189 gains. Their tally struck 235,521 and still lack 63,643 to pass the 2009 Quarters Silver Proof Set, which ended at 299,164 (still unofficial).

On the bullion front, the American Silver Eagle remained hot. 847,000 more coins sold since last Wednesday. February’s total is still a little shy of one million, but it did move up to 897,000. Their year-to-date sales hit 7,319,000.

    Here in New Jersey, I’ll be happy to get my US Army Silver Dollar. Many Great
    Battles were fought here by our Army, and the Continental Congress once
    stayed in Princeton NJ!!
