US Mint silver coin sales statsExcluding 2009 Quarters Silver Proof Sets, demand for US silver collector coins tumbled based on the latest United States Mint sales report.

Taking the biggest hit were Braille Silver Dollars. Sales of the coins did show slippage in last week’s report, but they remained exceptionally high. The latest figures have percent increases dropping to single digits. It will be interesting to see if the NFB and Braille coin space flight news perks up the numbers next week, and how many more over 150,000 are bought.

In coming back to the 2009 DC & US Territories Quarters Silver Proof Set, an additional 11,871 were purchased by collectors, representing a more than respectable 9.86 percent increase. 132,208 have been sold since they went on sale March 23.

Here are the latest numbers:
