The advent of the Presidential dollar first-day covers has sparked a little life in the first-day cover Mint sales numbers. It doesn?t hurt that a commercial grading service is slabbing them. The John Adams total has risen by nearly 10,000 since the numbers last appeared on this page. State quarter issues are still crawling along.
Last week?s June Eagle gold bullion numbers turned out to be final, so July numbers have started right in at right.
The big question this week is will the 2006 clad 10-coin proof set reach the 2 million sales mark before the 2007 set arrives to replace it? It is a horse race.
Big numbers are still being racked up by the four-coin Presidential dollar proof set. Sales rose 109,711 this week to reach 725,767.
Little Rock?s Coin and Medal set has still not sold out. Hmm.
