    Dismal start to the Unc gold $5 coins. The problem is, as mintages for each successive commemorative program drop by 10% it seems like there’s 15% less people collecting or caring. You can still buy the 7k mintage SSB gold unc coins for just above what the mint originally sold them for.

  2. Dustyroads says:

    Michael, I’m curious about why you didn’t mention the four fewer days of sales for 2013 commemorative coins compared to the 2012 coins in this post. I broke down sales figures for both years into daily sales for each coin and found that gold sales were higher for 2013 while silver sales were lower.

  3. Coin Update says:

    I mentioned this in a further discussion on Mint News Blog. The sales do not occur evenly over the four days, the majority of the total occurs in the first day if historical trends hold.

  4. Dustyroads says:

    Thanks for the info.
