I have temporarily moved Sacagawea dollar roll and bag numbers off this page to make room for Van Buren dollars. Gold and silver bullion American Eagle numbers jumped again.
Sacagawea $1 bags and rolls come back
Sacagawea $1 bags and rolls are back on the page. The number of tenth-ounce proof gold American Eagles jumped this week. The asterisk put on the total last week was an error. Other asterisks were added to the page this week.

Mint Stats: More interest or less in dollars?
Will the government’s decision to strike no more Presidential dollars for circulation and restrict their mintages to the number purchased by collectors increase the number of bags and rolls that collectors buy? I don’t know the answer to that, but I expect the dollar listings on these pages will take on a little bit more importance as collectors follow the potential mintages.
Mint Stats: Dollar coin sellouts might be surprise
A number of asterisks went up this week where you might not expect them to appear. The McKinley 100-coin dollar bags are now marked as no longer available as are the same size bag for Taft.
