US Mint Silver Coin Sales Mixed with Highs and Lows

US Mint silver coin sales statsWhile the latest figures for US Mint collector silver coins and sets sales show a mixture of ups and downs, the overall picture appears less than exciting.

The "winner" in the week-over-week comparison for both a unit and percentage increase was the DC & US Territories Quarters. The set rose by 3.42 percent for another 6,491 — yet, still substantially lower than the prior week when 10,374 were scooped up.

Braille Dollars dipped with the exception of those sold within the easy-open capsule. The total across all three production options is now up to 171,347. A reasonably strong showing for a commemorative coin. In saying that, the likelihood of a 400,000 strong sell out appears distant.

In the investor realm, American Eagle Silver bullion sales added another 425,000 during the third week of June. The total sold for 2009 is up 13,349,500 as of June 22. This figure makes the collector coin numbers seem rather small.

In related silver coins news, the US Mint’s updated schedule now has the 2009 Silver Proof Set scheduled for release on July 17.
