The Mint has been busy cranking out a multitude of new releases since our last report – so let’s jump right in.
The end of February saw the release of bags and rolls of the American Innovation dollar honoring Rhode Island on the 23rd. It is the first 2022-dated coin of the series to be released.
A day later on Feb. 24, the commemorative flood gates opened when all but one product in the 2022 National Purple Heart Hall of Honor lineup became available for pre-order. Collectors were able to claim proof and uncirculated versions of a $5 gold coin, silver dollar, clad half dollar and a 3-coin proof set containing each of the coins. Sales are strong, and the proof silver dollar is leading the way with a total of 25,708 through March 13. (A colorized version of the silver dollar was set for pre-order on March 24.)
March kicked off with three more releases, beginning with the First Amendment American Eagle platinum proof coin for Freedom of Speech on March 3. As of the latest report, it has garnered 7,504 in sales.
Less than a week later on March 8, the much-anticipated American Women quarter proof set became available, with initial sales of 42,368.
And finally, we round out this flurry of new issues with the Armed Forces silver medal for the Navy, coming in at 9,891.
