The United States Mint has released its weekly sales report for the 7-day period ending August 23, 2020. Unsurprisingly, the bevy of new products that the Mint released within the last week were amongst the top ten selling products for the Mint, along with the continued strong showing of annual products and bullion products.
The top three selling products were the various products for the 2020 Women’s Suffrage Centennial commemorative, showing strong sales in just a handful of days of availability. The Proof Silver Dollar was the top selling product, with 11,264 of the coins sold. Second was the Proof Silver Dollar and Medal Set which sold 7,796 sets in its first week of availability. That means that just over 2,200 of the 10,000 produced remain available. Finally, the third top selling product was the Women’s Suffrage Centennial Uncirculated Silver Dollar. 5,543 of these coins were sold. Because of the high production numbers, both the Proof and Uncirculated Silver Dollar remain readily available.
The near weekly presence of the 2020 Proof Set and 2020 Silver Proof Set continued in the August 23 sales report. The standard proof set added another 4,351 sets to its total for 2020, making it the fourth best selling product this past week. In total, 334,918 of the sets have been sold. Meanwhile the Silver Proof Set was purchased 2,886 times last week which put it in seventh position on the top ten list. So far, 256,005 of the silver sets have been sold this year.
Between the Proof Sets, in fifth and sixth position, where the 2020-W American Eagle Silver Proof and Uncirculated 1-ounce bullion coins. 3,551 of the Proof samples were sold in the last week while 2,985 of the Uncirculated variety were sold. Continuing the bullion theme, the 2020 American Buffalo gold Proof 1-ounce coin made a return to the top ten list this week with 1,444 of these coins sold.
Finally, rounding out the top ten is the newly introduced Barbara Bush First Spouse coins. The gold Proof sold 1,406 coins in its first week of availability while the Uncirculated specimen had a sales total of 946 for the week.
