If there was a top performer this week, it might just be a surprising jump in sales of the 5-Star General uncirculated clad half dollar. Buyers snapped up 2,112 to bring the running count up to 20,477. It is not often that sales move by over 10 percent.
Interest in the Girl Scouts Young Collectors Set is receding. Just 629 were sold. Another 47,897 need to be vended to reach sellout status, something that doesn’t look very likely.
The 2013-W silver proof American Eagle put in a reasonable increase at 26,962. This brings total sales to 636,680.
Sales of the 2013 silver American Eagle bullion coin to the Mint’s authorized purchasers exceeded four million coins for the month of July to become the second highest sales month of 2013. Only January’s sales of 7,498,000 are higher than the 4,406,500 sold in July.
The one-ounce 2013 proof gold American Eagle moved ahead by 1,416 to reach 10,863.
