US Silver Coin Sales Stats – May 6

May 6, 2009 by · Leave a Comment 

US Mint silver coin sales statsDemand for silver coins and sets dipped slightly compared to last week’s report, and according to the newest US Mint sales data.

The story is still about Braille Silver Dollars. More than one third of the possible 400,000 have now been sold. And while the latest numbers don’t compare to the prior week’s extremely impressive tallies, new sales still picked up for each option by about 16 percent.

145,308 of the coins are now listed as sold, with 20,306 more added. Not bad at all for seven days of sales. Again, these figures don’t measure up to those toward the beginning or end of April, but the Mint isn’t likely complaining.

Sales of 2009 DC & US Territories Silver Proof Sets jumped by 9,926, or 8.99 percent. A total of 120, 337 have now been purchased by collectors.

Here are the latest numbers:

The maximum amount of individual coins have sold out, leaving 50,000 proof coins reserved for the special 5-coin set coming later this year. As yet another reminder, the collector 2009 silver eagles are still suspended.
