Mint Statistics: Proof gold Eagles now a flock of three

Proof 2018-W gold American Eagles go on the board this week. It is not elegant to put them where First Spouse gold coins were last week, but it is necessary. Would you believe the U.S. Mint has 2016, 2017 and 2018 proof gold Eagle coins on sale simultaneously? The standard box below accommodated only two of the three years, so the 2018-W coins get a new spot for the moment.

The charge of the cold feet brigade brought down totals of the World War I Centennial $1 coin and medal sets by a handful for each of the five service branches. Meanwhile the individual commemorative coins advanced. The proofs have passed the 40,000 mark.

There was a little more juice in the tenth-ounce American Liberty gold proof coin. Sales rose by 1,291 to reach 18,541. This compares to an increase of just 739 last week. Still, it is a long way to the 135,000 ceiling.
