2019 Uncirculated Mint Set Dominates This Week’s Mint Sales Report

The 2019 Uncirculated Mint Set dominated the US Mint’s sales report for the week ending May 19, 2019. The new set, which was released on May 14th, sold a whopping 161,598 units in its first week, crushing everything the Mint sold for the week. It also means that the Uncirculated Set upended the 2019 Silver Proof Set which had been the top seller for four consecutive weeks.

Indeed, sales of the Uncirculated Mint Set were some 40,000 units higher than the 2018 set and are the highest debut sales numbers for the set in seven years. The impressive sales numbers can be attributed to the inclusion of the 2019-W Lincoln Cent uncirculated sample which comes with the other 20 coins in the set.

Coming in a distant second in the Mint’s sales report was the 2019 Proof Set. Another 9,008 of the San Francisco minted sets were sold last week while the 2019-W American Eagle Silver Proof took third place. There were just over 2,300 Eagles sold according to the report.
