Mint Stats: Old programs slow to make room for new

With the accounting pinball machine bouncing numbers around, programs that have ended I am reluctant to remove from this report. Therefore, the 2017 Lions silver dollar has been put below the Mark Twain and National Park Service figures. In the past two weeks, just 11,179 additional proofs have been sold and 2,940 uncirculateds. The running Lions tallies are 34,528 and 10,147, respectively.

For the same reason the full January bullion Eagle sales box remains. In the end, January sales could not catch last year’s performance for the same month. Silver Eagles fell 827,000 coins short of January 2016. The gold Eagles fell short by 26,500 ounces. For just the one-ounce gold Eagle, it was a near miss. 86,500 were sold in January 2017, just 2,500 below last year’s number. If you want February Eagle figures, subtract January numbers from totals in the bottom half of the chart.

The 2017 Native American dollars have been listed on the bottom half, as well as the 2017 ATB proof quarter sets.
