The United States Mint has released its weekly sales report. The report covers sales of Mint products for the 7-day period ending July 19, 2020. Focusing on the top ten selling items, the report shows a mix of products that collectors purchased in the past week, ranging from annual sets to coin rolls and sets.
Taking honors for the week’s top selling product was the silver proof 2020-W American Eagle 1-ounce coin. An impressive 18,089 of them were sold in the week, pushing its total sales for the year to just over 300,000 (300,534). Keep in mind that this is the proof of the American Eagle, not the uncirculated specimen which was released two weeks ago. It is often we will see a close variety to a recently released coin see “afterglow” sales and in the case of the proof American Eagle, that seems to be the case this week.
The second and third top selling products for the week ending July 19, 2020 have been nearly weekly leaders for the year: The 2020 Proof Set and 2020 Silver Proof Set. The standard proof set saw 4,526 units sold in the last week, putting its total sales to 312,001 for the year. Meanwhile, the Silver Proof Set was close behind with 4,128 units sold, pushing its total sales for the year to 237,489.
Rounding out the top five selling items for the week was the recently released Salt River American the Beautiful product and the 2020 Kennedy Half Dollar 2-Roll set. In fourth was the 2020-S America the Beautiful 100-coin bag for the Salt River Historical Park. An impressive 800 bags were sold in the past week, putting its total up to 2,845 since its release on July 10, 2020. Throughout 2020, the 100-coin bags from the San Francisco Mint for the ATB series have outsold their Denver and Philadelphia counterparts. The latest Quarter in the series is well on pace to continue that trend. In fifth in sales for the week was the 2020 Kennedy Half Dollar 2-Roll set. 617 of these were sold in the week, putting its total sales at 17,257 for the year.
