It was a quiet week as far as new releases go, but for top sellers, silver continues to dominate.
The front-runner this week is the 2020-W proof silver Eagle coin. With a hearty week-over-week gain of 18,089, it cracked 300,000 with a current overall total of 300,543. This pushed it from second place last week into number one.
Coming in second this week is the 2020 10-coin clad proof set with “W” nickel. It jumped more than 4,500 for the week, finishing at a total of 312,001.
Silver’s strength is again evident in the performance of the 10-coin silver proof set with “W” nickel. It increased by 4,128 this week.
With the price of silver holding strong at just north of $21 per ounce as this is being written, it will be interesting to see how sales of silver products fare in the coming weeks.
Rounding out our top 5 performers with more modest sales are 100-coin bags of the San Francisco-mintmarked 2020 Salt River Bay National Historic Park quarters with an overall total of 2,845 after about a week and a half on the market and the two-roll set of 2020 Kennedy half dollars that now totals 17,257.
