I expect you noticed that last week’s edition did not have the Mint Statistics column in it. Sorry. It could not be helped. I did not receive sales figures from the Mint before the Sept. 6 issue went to press.
The 2010 Grand Canyon 5-ounce uncirculated America the Beautiful silver coin looks like a sellout. I expect the 27,154 number will be massaged back to 27,000 shortly as the Mint works through canceled and problem orders.
The Mount Hood coin still has 7,658 remaining for collectors to buy.
There is no word yet on the 2011 collector versions of the ATB coins, but the Mint still has supplies of the last three bullion versions for its Authorized Purchaser network if anyone is interested in them. The Olympic, Vicksburg and Chickasaw supplies seem ample currently.
Proof 2011 silver American Eagles have passed the 700,000 mark to reach 716,328.
