The latest weekly United States Mint numismatic product sales report includes the opening figures for the 2013 Helen Taft First Spouse Gold Coin. Also, the spate of product sell outs continues with the 2013 Proof Gold Buffalo no longer available.

The Helen Taft Gold Coins went on sale at the US Mint on December 2, 2013, representing the third release of the series in less than three weeks. The proof version was priced at $815 per coin, while the uncirculated version was $795 per coin. This was one increment lower than the prior two releases. The maximum mintage was 10,000 pieces across both versions.

Through the reporting date of December 8, sales have reached 1,467 proofs and 982 uncirculated coins. This makes for a combined total of 2,449 pieces, accounting for 24.49% of the maximum mintage. This was a stronger start compared to the prior two releases, but this may have been due to a longer availability period before the first reported sales.
