Mint Statistics: AWQ Silver Proof Set Releases
After a fast and furious string of new releases from the US Mint, we can slow down enough to catch our breath this week. Only one new product has been added to the list: the 2022 American Women quarter silver proof set.
This latest set contains five 99.9 fine silver proof versions of the American Women’s Quarter Program honoring Maya Angelou, Dr. Sally Ride, Wilma Mankiller, Nina Otero-Warren and Anna May Wong. This is the first time that coins honoring Mankiller, Otero-Warren and Wong have been made available, as their circulating versions have yet to be released.
After six days of sales since its March 29 release through April 3, the end date of the Mint’s latest report, 57,735 sets have been sold. There’s no mintage or domestic order limit for this set, so we’ll be keeping an eye on its upward movement.
Bullion is a hot topic these days, with gold and silver showing up and down swings lately. It is in this climate that we find the first bullion sales figures posted for the month of April. As of April 6, Buffalo gold bullion coins were at 7,000 for the month, bringing the year-to-date total to 161,500. The Gold Bullion Eagles are on the board with 53,5000 total for all sizes, for a year-to-date total of 836,500. Silver Bullion Eagles posted 425,000, taking the 2022 year-to-date total past the 8 million mark.
