This week we find ourselves still in the midst new releases from the U.S. Mint, the first of which being the 2022 run of American Eagle gold proof coins.
On March 17, the one-, 1/2-, 1/4- and 1/10-ounce gold proof American Eagles became available. The first week-and-a-half of sales came in at 5,645, 1,990, 4,473 and 10,793, respectively. Also released was a set consisting of all four coins; it has sold 8,753 so far.
Next up was the release of American Women quarter honoring Dr. Sally Ride, the second in the series that launched this year. Bags and rolls became available on March 22 but sold out in a flash.
Another release and quick sellout was the colorized version of the Purple Heart Hall of Honor commemorative silver dollar on March 24. It hit its maximum mintage of 25,000 on the day of release. The Mint is reporting total sales of 24,995.
