New to the charts this week is the American Innovation dollar honoring the state of Vermont. The dollar, released by the U.S. Mint in bags and rolls, has a reverse design that features a young female snowboarder in the air performing a trick, set against a mountainous winter skyline inspired by the landscape of Vermont.
It seems collectors were enthusiastic about the design because, from its debut on April 26 through the May 1 end-date of the most current sales report, its numbers have already topped those of the Rhode Island Innovation dollar that came before it on Feb. 23. Vermont’s 25-count roll option has sold a total of 13,989 in Philadelphia and Denver mintmark options, while the $100 coin bag has reached 5,540 for both options. This, compared to Rhode Island’s respective totals of 13,980 and 5,079.
This week’s Mint report also includes final bullion sales numbers for the month of April. Gold Buffalo coins ended the month 10,000 up from our last report for an April total of 27,000, bringing the year-to-date total to 181,500. As for gold bullion Eagles, the only movement we see since our last report is a 19,500 increase to 80,500 for the 1-ounce coin, bringing its year-to-date total to 8,431,500.
