The United States Mint has released its weekly sales report for the week ending August 2, 2020. As has been the case throughout much of 2020, annual products once again dominated the top ten selling items for the week. The report also showed that bullion products such as the American Eagle silver and gold coins continued to sell well as collectors and investors buy them to strengthen their portfolios or collections.
The top two selling items for this past week were the 2020-W American Eagle silver 1-ounce coins. The Proof specimen sold 7,969 coins in the past week, pushing its total sales to 316,695 for 2020. Meanwhile, the Uncirculated variant was closely behind with 7,381 units sold. That pushes its total sales for the year to 107,270.
In third and forth on the top ten sales list were the 2020 Proof Set and 2020 Silver Proof Set. The standard set had 4,495 units sold in the past week while the silver set nearly equaled that total with 4,247 sets sold for the week. In all, 320,832 of the Proof Sets for this year have been sold so far while 244,948 of the silver set have been sold. Interestingly, the 2019 Proof Set and Silver Proof set also were in the top ten this week, taking the sixth and seventh best selling positions for the week.
Splitting the 2020 and 2019 Proof sets was the recently released 2020 American Innovation Dollar Reverse Proof coin for Connecticut. And additional 2,518 of these coins were sold, pushing its total sales to 27,255. This is the latest in the AI Reverse Proof series to be released by the mint, having been released in the final week of July.
Other Numismatic products of interest that made it into the Mint’s top ten selling items for the week was the 2019 American Liberty Silver Medal 2.5-ounce medal and the 2020 American Eagle Gold Proof 1-Ounce coin. Both of these products have not been in the top ten for some time but with precious medals being in demand, they saw an unexpected increase in sales.
