First Spouse Coin Sales: Abigail Fillmore Proof Remains Top Seller

First Spouse Coin Sales Figures logoAnother week of slower sales passed for the First Spouse Gold Coins series, the latest United States Mint sales figures revealed. The combined new sales equaled 404, compared to 588 last week.

Not surprisingly, the newer Abigail Fillmore coins held on to the number one spot, adding 112 proofs and 64 uncirculated. Other top performers included uncirculated Margaret Taylor’s and Sarah Polk’s. They improved by 55 and 42 respectively. Usually more proofs take these top positions than uncirculated versions.

At least the US Mint will leave First Spouse coin prices as they are this week. While gold has been surging, with prices on Wednesday hitting their highest level since December, its dip last week was enough to keep the London gold fix weekly average below $1,150 an ounce. That kept the Mint from raising the first lady coin prices by $25.

The gold pieces will certainly appear more attractive this week with their lower costs and now higher intrinsic values. Maybe that will be enough to spur a few more collectors to place orders.

However, the Mint is also releasing the 2010 bullion Buffalo coins on Thursday, which have lower premiums since they are bullion and not numismatic offerings. (See sister site CoinNews article: 2010 Buffalo Gold Bullion Coins Available.) As newly dated, they will command much better attention with both investors and collectors later this week, as compared to the First Spouse Coins.

The following tables compare the prior to most recent U.S. Mint sales data:

Does anyone know if the Mint plans to end the Letitia & Julia Tyler coins together or separated by six (6) weeks as they did when the coins originally went on sale?
