The 2016 Mercury Dime Centennial Gold Coin has sold about 98% of its available mintage, according to official sales numbers posted today by the U.S. Mint.
The total puts sales of the Gold Mercury Dime at 122,510 units, just 2,490 away from the item’s 125,000-piece mintage limit, giving collectors a general sense of how many more of the coins may, or may not, be released in the future.
As noted on Mint News Blog, there is currently no way to know for certain whether the Mint plans to sell more of this issue. It may declare a sellout soon, or it may release small batches of the coin in occasional morning sales, inching the total closer to 125,000 units over the next several weeks.
Coin Update will post the U.S. Mint’s complete numismatic sales report tomorrow, April 27.
Update: this post has been updated to reflect new information published on April 26 in this week’s U.S. Mint numismatic sales report.
