Is it worth a headline to point out that the United States Mint sold 2,367 Enhanced Uncirculated Coin Sets this week compared to 1,390 last week? It will have to do, because the rest of the Mint’s product line is a yawner. The running tally for the set is now 193,573, which is still a far cry from the 225,000 maximum.
Silver proof sets outpaced the clad for another week. Sales totaled 10,257. Sales so far this year are 245,687. For the 2017 clad proof set, the number added this week is 6,304 to reach 363,923.
Somebody was keen on the 2017 uncirculated gold American Eagle. Sales jumped 677 to 4,499. That’s a 17.7 percent increase.
On the other hand, the 2017 proof platinum Eagle gave back 46. The overall number thus fell below 9,000 to 8,992. Maximum is 10,000.
The Lions proof dollar rose by 106 while the unc. increased by 22.
