Marshals commemoratives released

The 2015 U.S. Marshals Service commemorative coins released Jan. 29 to lackluster sales. In the first day, only 14,212 proof and 7,649 uncirculated half dollars were sold along with 24,057 proof and 10,200 uncirculated dollars. The gold $5 saw just 2,698 proof and 2,323 uncirculated coins sold in that same period.

Sales by Feb. 1 did better despite supply shortages of the coins. The half dollar is now at 22,953 proof and 13,323 uncirculated coins sold. The dollar coin sales now sit at 37,530 proof and 18,835 uncirculated coins purchased while the gold $5 stands at 4,759 proof and 4,556 uncirculated coins ordered.

The U.S. Marshals three coin proof set went from first day sales of 9,421 to 9,901 sets sold by Feb. 1.

February bullion sales as of Feb. 4 stand at 2,000 one ounce and 5,000 tenth-ounce gold Eagles along with 579,500 silver Eagles sold.

Coming off sale is the 2012 Hawaii three-coin set at 19,951 sets sold.

Also off sale is the 2014 Native American dollar 100-coin bag from Philadelphia with 1,987 units sold.
