First Spouse Gold Coin Sales Figures – Feb 26

in Mint Sales Figures

Overall, First Spouse Gold Coin sales were again better than those reported from the week prior. Van Buren’s Liberty is the standout, with nearly a doubling in performance over last week. The proof coin joined the other 2008 proofs to rise above 5,000 sold.

The US Mint on Wednesday raised prices for each spouse coin by $25. The timing couldn’t have been worse. In a twist of irony, the price of gold has fallen significantly since Monday and dropped below $950 an ounce on Thursday. It had just reached over $1,000 an ounce last Friday.

In other gold coin noteworthy news, all US Mint 2008-dated American Eagle coins have sold out. The only 2008-dated gold coins collectors can now purchase straight from the Mint are First Spouse Coins. That would seem like great news for the series… if it wasn’t for gold’s negative four-day trend and the recent increase in coin prices.

Finally, on Wednesday the Mint announced 2009 Anna Harrison First Spouse Coins will go on sale beginning Thursday, March 5, at noon ET.
