US Mint silver coin sales statsWith the exception of the DC & US Territories Quarters Silver Proof Set, silver coin sales were mostly lackluster based on the latest US Mint stats.

The quarters silver proof set surged with an additional 12,238 sold for a total of 163,703. Not bad considering the sets have only been on sale since March 23. Why the increase? There’s a good chance the sets received extra attention when collectors were checking out the newly released 2009 Proof Set.

Sales of Louis Braille Silver Dollars were on fire as reported last week. They have since cooled. 2,823 more were sold for a grand total of 168,564. That compares to the 10,045 additional sold during the previous reporting period.

Here are the latest numbers:
