Mint Statistics: Eagle, Buffalo Coins on the Board for February

Another week, another quiet sales period for U.S. Mint products. While, at the time of this writing, two new products have been released – bags and rolls of the Maya Angelou American Women quarter on Feb. 7 and bags, rolls and boxes of the 2022 Native American dollar honoring Ely S. Parker on Feb. 9 – just a few on-sale days have gone by, thus there are no numbers to report. We will see them reflected next time.

However, we do see the first posted bullion coin totals for the month of February. Bullion gold Buffalo coins have come out of the gate with 5,500, bringing the year-to-date total to 67,000. As for bullion American Eagles, the gold 1-ounce version has posted at 21,000 so far in February, while no number was recorded for the 1/2-ounce version. Quarter-ounces are at 2,000 for the month, and the 1/10-ounce version has come in at 10,000. Silver Eagles have kicked off the month with sales of 500,000, bringing the year-to-date total to 5,501,000.

Again this week, the biggest increase in sales of the Negro Leagues Baseball coins is from the proof silver dollar. The healthy jump of 1,408 over last week brings the total sold to 13,131. Next in line is the clad proof, which sold 1,243 for a total of 12,802.
