The two-roll set of uncirculated 2010 Lincoln cents pierced the 100,000 mark this week. There is something compelling about a nice round number. Since only 6,676 sets were sold this week, it will be a long time before we reach another nice round number.
The Mint is still pushing silver American Eagle bullion coins out the door as fast as it can. However, even though supply is larger than last year, demand still outstrips it.
In the last two days of April, 337,500 silver Eagles were sold and in the opening few days of May another 300,000 coins were sold. This week shows the complete April monthly sales box. May will take its place next week.
Hot Springs quarter sales calmed down quite a bit, giving me a chance to realize that I had forgotten to put the correct name on the totals last week and instead they appeared under the Northern Marianas header. Sorry.
Still no final Boy Scout sellout.
