The United States Mint has released its weekly sales report for the week ending October 11, 2020. Annual sets from the Mint continued to be strong sellers in the week as well as one of the two new products that the Mint released last week. In total, the Mint sold 5,443,678 products for the week.
The top selling product was the newly introduced 2020 American Innovation Dollar Proof Set. 46,546 of the sets were sold in its first few days of availability. This puts the set at nearly half of the sales for the 2019 set which, interestingly, was also in the top ten selling items list for the report. 777 of the 2019 sets were sold, making it the tenth best selling product for the week and pushing its total sales to 108,638. This “honeymoon” effect is not uncommon on annual sets, particularly this year for the Mint.
Continuing its strong showing for the year was the 2020 Proof Set, the second best selling product for the Mint this past week. 7,684 of the sets were sold in the week which brings its total sales for the year to 378,009. Meanwhile, the 2020 Silver Proof Set also had a strong week, selling 6,130 sets to end up as the fourth best selling item. Between them, the third best seller was the 2020 W American Eagle Silver Uncirculated 1-Ounce bullion coin. 7,249 of the coins were sold for the week which brings its total sales for 2020 to 145,824.
Bullion on and silver products continued their strong showing for the year in this week’s report. Of the top ten selling items, five of them were either bullion or silver. This has been a trend for much of 2020 as collectors and investors continue to buy these precious metal products as a guard against inflation as the world continues to struggle through the COVID-19 pandemic.
