The United States Mint has released its weekly sales report for the week ending December 13, 2020. The report shows that annual sets and bullion products remain top sellers for the Mint this week with the newest product release taking the top seller’s position for the week.
That new product was the 2020 Limited Edition Silver Proof Set. The Mint reported that 39,296 of the 50,000 sets were sold in its first week of availability. Truthfully, the fact the set did not sell out was a bit of a surprise given the low mintage. However, the $201 price of the set was substantially higher than the 2019 set which may be causing some to hesitate. As of the time of this article, the sets remained available on the Mint’s site.
The 2020 Uncirculated Set was the second best seller for the Mint last week with an additional 15,420 sets sold. That pushed the total sales of the set just past the two-hundred thousand mark at 206,496. Meanwhile, the Tallgrass Prairie National Preserve America the Beautiful 5-ounce silver coin made its debut as the third best seller. 12,187 of the coins were sold in its first week of availability, which is a strong start for the coin. The high demand reflects the continued desire of collectors and investors to have precious medals in their portfolio.
The fourth top seller was the 2020 American Innovation Dollar Proof Set. 2,981 of the sets were sold last week, pushing the total sales for the 2020 set to 73,347. Interestingly, the 2019 American Innovation Dollar Set continued to sell well this past week too. 2,254 of last year’s set were sold last week, putting its total sales to 118,317.
Rounding out the top five in sales was the 25-coin roll of the George H.W. Bush Presidential Dollar from Philadelphia. That roll added another 2,455 rolls to its total sales, putting it just under 10,000 in total (9,711).
