The latest weekly sales report for United States Mint numismatic products includes the debut figures for the 2013 Native American Dollars. Most gold numismatic products experienced a surge in sales following a price decrease.

The US Mint began accepting orders for bags, rolls, and boxes of circulating quality 2013 Native American Dollars on April 22, 2013. This year’s reverse design features a turkey, howling wolf, and turtle to represent the Delaware Treaty of 1778, which was the first written treaty between the new United States  and a Native American tribe. Through the reporting date of April 29, 2013, the US Mint sold products accounting for 1,240,200 of the coins. This is significantly slower than the opening sales figures for recently released Presidential Dollars, which seem to have a much wider collector base.

During the period covered by the report, the US Mint reduced the prices for gold numismatic products in accordance with the recent drop in precious metals prices. Collectors responded by heavily ordering the recently released 2013 Proof American Gold Eagles and the 2012 First Spouse Gold Coins.
