First Spouse Gold Coins Jump Before Price Increase

in Mint Sales Figures

First Spouse Coin Sales Figures logoSales of First Spouse Gold Coins rebounded, the latest United States Mint statistics show. In fact, demand for the coins almost doubled. The combined new sales reached 785, blowing well past last week’s 404.

Buyers, no doubt, recognized the increasing gold value of the 24-karat half ounce coins when the London Fix gold price grew. Since the U.S. Mint waits until the middle of the week to calculate whether a numismatic price change is needed, there were several days of buying before the Mint re-aligned First Spouse coin prices with the market price of gold.

Top on the buyers list was the Margaret Taylor uncirculated coins. They knocked Abigail Fillmore proofs from the number one spot, while Letitia Tyler uncirculated toppled Abigail Fillmore uncirculated from the number two spot. Margaret Taylor uncirculated gained 171, Letitia Tyler uncirculated jumped 138, and Abigail Fillmore proofs added 135.

The Letitia Tyler coins will be the next to leave the U.S. Mint’s availability list when the 2010 Jane Pierce coins arrive in June. The actual date in June has not been announced yet. Still, totals for Letitia’s coins are quite low and they do not have much time to reach final numbers like Anna Harrison or Van Buren Liberty coins.

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