The United States Mint has released its weekly numismatic product sales report for the week ending June 6, 2021. The report covers the previous seven days in numismatic product sales by the Mint and is separate from the bullion sales report. The report shows that the Mint had a good week in sales with 17,967 items sold in the previous week. Of the top 10 selling products for the Mint last week, all save one were releases from this year.
Topping the sales last week was the 2021 Proof Set, adding another 6,240 units to its sales total. For the year, the set is now nearing the three hundred thousand mark with 296,948. Sales should break through the 300,000 plateau next week if sales remain strong. The second top seller was the 2021 Silver Proof Set. 3,487 of the sets were sold last week, pushing sales to 202,749. Sales of the silver set have remained strong, something that was in question when the set was released due to its high price tag. That cost seems to have had little impact on collectors.
The third top seller was the 2021 Kennedy Half Dollar 2-Roll set. 985 of the sets of Denver & Philadelphia rolls were sold last week, putting the sales total for the year at 240,407. Meanwhile, the 2021 America the Beautiful Uncirculated 5 Ounce coin for the Tuskegee Airmen made its return to the top ten after its initial release. 936 of the coins were sold in the week of June 6, putting total sales just shy of twenty thousand at 19,845. Rounding out the top five selling products was the 2021 Birth Set which added 563 sets to its sales total for the year.
