Mint Statistics: New 2018 issues climb very slowly

World War I Centennial two-piece set sales advanced a bit in the latest reporting week, but none of them is anywhere near a sellout. The set with the Army medal in it was up by 1,871, Air Service by 1,664, Navy by 1,600, Marines by 1,513 and Coast Guard by 1,215. The individual proof coin rose by 4,591 to reach a sales figure of 29,580. The uncirculated dollar stands at 11,561, up 1,548.

Adding 15,359 was the 2018-W proof silver American Eagle. Its running total is 241,865.

Going the scoreboard with its first results is the 2018-W proof platinum $100. It stands at 7,530.

January sales of the bullion American Eagles were weak. The numbers below are down sharply from 2017 totals. This is usually the best sales month of the year for Eagles.

The five-quarter America the Beautiful clad proof set starts its run with sales of 36,563.
