Mint Statistics: No spring in U.S. Mint sales numbers

There were 10 inches of snow in Iola, Wis., April 3. Spring definitely has not sprung here. Mint sales numbers are not springing higher, either.

There was another round of subtractions from the two-piece World War I Centennial Silver dollar and military service branch medal sets. All five declined again, though only by relative handfuls.

The initial sales push for Breast Cancer Awareness coins is also over. Gains this week ranged from an increase of 1,397 for the proof dollar to a rise of 277 for the uncirculated dollar. The gold $5 numbers were 1,361 for the proof and 475 for the uncirculated. The half dollar proof was up by 836, and the uncirculated half rose by 780.

Clad proof sets went up by 6,201.

Bullion coin sales were slow as April began. Buyers took 210,000 silver American Eagles. The gold Eagles were ignored completely.
