Uncirculated Mary Todd Lincoln First Spouse Gold Coin

The US Mint did it again. It removed another First Spouse Gold Coin seemingly early. On Thursday, June 2, the Mint stopped selling the uncirculated Mary Todd Lincoln First Spouse Gold Coin. Lincoln’s proof version, however, is still available.

Remarkably, the uncirculated Mary Todd Lincoln issue achieved double digit sales or higher for all but one week since it launched on December 2, 2010. In fact, it gained 174 in the latest round of US Mint sales figures. The coin was on the market for just six months to the day, and it reached a total of 3,760. That number was far less than Buchanan’s Liberty uncirculated when it sold out with 5,348, but it was more than both Jane Pierce and Abigail Fillmore’s uncirculated strikes with 3,333 and 3,489.

Two other coins had triple digit gains in this round, but neither of them were the proof Mary Lincoln coin. That picked up 76 and came in fourth place in this report. Its total moved up to 6,236, so when combined with her uncirculated, they winded up 4 coins short of 10,000.

Originally, the US Mint said the maximum mintage for the Mary Todd Lincoln coins would be 20,000 across all options, but now it is clear that their actual mintage will be significantly lower. The question now remains, how many more proofs will the US Mint sell?

The Eliza Johnson coins made up the last two coins to move on the chart. They were the most popular with collectors at this time and catapulted up by 541. Broken out, the proof jumped by 308 and the uncirculated advanced by 233.

The Johnson Presidential $1 & First Spouse Medal Set was left off the most recent Mint’s stats, but the Buchanan set’s sales were listed on it. Buchanan’s number climbed by 50, compared to zero last time. Lincoln’s set came in second with 45, and Pierce’s set was third most popular in the group with 14.

Why no updates in the last month?
Is the mint giving updates for the sells units weekly?
