The latest weekly United States Mint numismatic product sales report contains the opening numbers for the William Howard Taft Presidential Dollar products. Silver numismatic products saw a boost this week, following the implementation of reduced pricing.

On July 9, the US Mint began accepting orders for rolls, bags, and boxes of circulating quality 2013 William Howard Taft Presidential Dollars. This represented the 27th release from the ongoing series, with the newly released coins now only available within numismatic products. Across all available options, sales reached 3,538,575 coins. This was up slightly from the total debut sales for the previous release of the series featuring Theodore Roosevelt. The most popular product options by volume were the 25-coin rolls, while the products accounting for the greatest number of coins sold were the 250-coin boxes. As has typically been the case, orders were skewed towards Philadelphia Mint coins.

Effective July 11, the US Mint reduced the prices for most silver numismatic products. This included the annual sets containing 90% silver coins, products containing American Silver Eagles, and the America the Beautiful Five Ounce Silver Uncirculated Coins. Sales showed a week over week increase for all impacted products. The largest gains were seen for the 2013 Proof Silver Eagle, which rose from previous weekly sales of 2,456 units to 16,191 units, and the Making American History Coin and Currency Set which rose from 38 units to 1,722. At cumulative sales of 60,000 units, the MAH Set is now indicated as sold out on the US Mint’s website.
