US Mint silver coin sales stats2009 Quarters Silver Proof Sets were the only collectors silver coins to show better sales last week compared to the week prior. In the newest US Mint sales report, everything reversed. New sales of the sets declined compared to prior numbers while all other coins showed improved gains – albeit slightly.

However, the proof set is still the most popular with 11,006 more sold, for a new total of 142,214.

Sales of Braille Silver Dollars picked up, but not by much. In total, 155,696 of the proof and silver coins have now been sold. On a percentage basis, the silver dollars housed in the Mint’s easy-open capsule increased the most, rising nearly 5 percent.

Here are the latest numbers:
