Angels have put a victor?s laurel on the head of John Adams as his Presidential dollar First Day Cover is now officially sold out. Readers have witnessed the climb to 50,000 week by week. The Mint director probably wishes the state quarter covers could rise to those levels. The odds are the Presidential cover sales will eventually slow down to match the state quarter pace as the novelty factor wears off.
Sales of the 14-coin clad 2007 proof sets rose by 120,119 this week to breach the half million mark. The sales pace is slowing, but still significant.
The four-coin Presidential set added 49,229 to its total. It is approaching 900,000 and the million mark looms after that.
