US Mint Sales: Few Boy Scouts Dollars Left, Silver Eagles Active

US Mint silver coin salesThe latest United States Mint sales figures for silver numismatic products showed a slower week compared to the prior report, but demand for silver bullion remained high. The reporting period does include the U.S. Memorial Day holiday, which is certainly one reason for weaker numbers.

2010 America the Beautiful Quarters Silver Proof Sets™ were the best selling collector item. Another 17,618 sold and brought the new total to 91,374. The silver sets were introduced on May 27th and are experiencing greater initial interest than last year’s silver quarters set which was at 75,301 after its second week.

2010 Boy Scouts of America Silver Dollars still have not sold out, but they are very close. Only 1,023 were left as of Sunday the 6th. The proof Boy Scouts lost some steam but still picked up 1,854. Last time the gain was 2,381. Their new total was 242,180.

Uncirculated Boy Scout coins, like previous weeks, lost sales. Another 57 were taken away in this round. The most recent total was 106,797. At its highest, the uncirculated reached a total of 107,296 on the weekly Mint report before it started steadily falling each week since May as returns and standby orders were processed. Together, the proof and uncirculated sales totaled 348,977.

2010 Disabled American Veterans Silver Dollars gained 1,236, down from the previous increase of 1,537. Proofs tacked on another 870, while the uncirculated added 366. The Mint has 144,746 dollars left of the total maximum mintage, so a sell out does not seem imminent.

2009 collector sets cooled somewhat, despite the approaching cut-off date. The 18-coin 2009 US Mint Silver Proof Set added another 2,791, which was marginally less upbeat than 2,844 gained at the end of May. The deadline to purchase them will be Tuesday, June 15th at 5:00 pm ET. So far, 690,822 have sold.

The other 2009 set left, the 2009 DC and Territories Quarters Silver Proof Set, sold 707, which was a tiny improvement over the prior 697. The new total 281,758.

For bullion coins, authorized buyers scooped up another 630,500 American Silver Eagles in the last seven days, maintaining a high and steady pace. The previous week’s sales were 645,500. June sales made it to 1,139,500 and the year to date total hit 16,307,000.
