The United States Mint has released its weekly sales report for the week ending Sunday, September 20, 2020. Unsurprisingly, annual sets and bullion products continued to be hot sellers for the Mint for the week, with only a smattering of commemorative products in the top ten sales list.
The top selling for the Mint last week was the newly introduced Salt River Bay National Historical Park Uncirculated 5-ounce coin. The latest issue of the 5-ounce bullion coins from the Mint sold an impressive 12,669 coins for the week, easily topping the list. With only 13,750 of these being minted, just over 1,000 (1,081) remain available for purchase and likely will be sold this week. Readers who want to pick one up should do it soon.
The second and third top selling products for the Mint last week were the 2020 Proof and 2020 Silver Proof sets. 4,002 standard Proof sets were sold last week, putting the total sales for the year to 353,496. Meanwhile, another 2,757 of the Silver Proof sets were sold, pushing its total sales for the year to 267,948.
