Lincoln Coin Sales

Lincoln Cent Sales 2009 Lincoln products received lots of attention last week. The Oct. 15 release of the Lincoln Coin & Chronicles Set no doubt is mostly responsible, since all 50,000 sets sold out in under 30 hours.

The Lincoln Cent Proof Sets must've been riding on the Chronicles Set coattails. Almost 11,000 sold in one week, something that hasn't happened to the Cent Proof Set in over a month.

The US Mint Set is still humming strong. 74,474 sold since the last report, and if demand remains strong, then it will easily reach the 500K milestone next week.

Lincoln Cent Sales The 2009 Mint Set, with eight Lincoln pennies in a copper alloy, is a huge hit with collectors. The US Mint reports 94,165 additional have been ordered since the sales figures were report last week, making 392,007 its total for the first 11 days on the market.

Sales for the Mint Silver Proof Set, however, were trimmed back. 520,059 is the new total, a shortage of 1,001 compared to last week's total of 521,060. The Mint does not provide an explanation as to such declines, although such a number could be attributed to cancellations or returns.

Many collectors are expecting a blockbusting launch for the upcoming Lincoln Coin & Chronicles Set. Sales begin tomorrow, noon Eastern Time, and only 50,000 will be available. There's a one per household limit, but that won't deter a quick sellout -- at least that seems to be the thought of many collectors. Time will tell.

Lincoln Cent SalesEvery Lincoln product experienced a cheerful improvement compared to last week's sales numbers, and the newly released 2009 US Mint Uncirculated Set started off exceptionally well.

Sales figures show higher than normal demand for the new Uncirculated Set, featuring four redesigned commemorative Lincoln pennies from the Denver and Philadelphia Mints. The set launched Thursday, Oct. 1 for $27.95 each, and a whopping 297,842 sold in the first four days. Last year, when the Mint launched the uncirculated set, it sold 234,762 in the initial four days.

In other numbers, the Lincoln Cent Proof Set regained strength. It increased by 10,630 this week compared to the prior 6,702 and the 8,115 before it. It's total has now reached 138,289.

Lincoln Cent SalesAcross the board, sales dipped for the popular Lincoln Cent products, compared to last week's US Mint sales figures. Slower sales at the end of the month, however, is not that unusual for this time of year.

The Lincoln Bicentennial Cent Proof Set didn't do too shabby. It advanced another 6,702, bringing the total sold for its first 32 days to 127,659.

Mint sales are expected to pick back up in October with the release of two new products. The 36-coin 2009 US Mint Uncirculated Set launches tomorrow at noon ET, and it will include the four new Lincoln Cents. On top of that, the US Mint has scheduled the Lincoln Coin and Chronicles Set release for October 15.

Lincoln Cent SalesDemand continues to decline for individual 2009 Lincoln Cent products as the weeks since their launch pass by, but that is pretty much the norm for most US Mint products.

The Illinois Professional Life Roll Sets did top 221K, according to the latest sales stats from the Mint. With the latest increase of 7,603, which is down from the prior 9,643, it looks like it will be many more weeks before the sets reach the 300,000 figure. That is the number the Mint used to end sales of the Rail Splitter two-roll sets.

The darling of the four available US Mint products that include the new pennies is again the 18-coin clad 2009 US Mint Proof Set. New sales were actually better than those from the week before -- 42,077 versus 40,511. That marks the third straight week of improved increases for the sets. The US Mint recently sent out a marketing Fall coin catalog to customers, which is most likely helping sales for these always popular annual sets.

Lincoln Cent SalesOf the four available US Mint products that include 2009 Lincoln Cents, the 18-coin clad 2009 US Mint Proof Set provided the most noticeable change within the group. It gained 40,511 over the prior 27,913, making the total purchased at 1,062,519.

The latest sales tallies for the Lincoln Cent Proof Set is 112,842, for an increase of 11,084. The Professional Life two roll set added 9,643, to bring its total to 214,115. Demand was down for both. Last week the two had respective gains of 35,408 and 13,108.

In upcoming US Mint offerings to watch out for, the next round of excitement for the Lincoln pennies will be the 2009 Mint Uncirculated Coin Set® which will go on sale Oct. 1, and the special Lincoln Coin & Chronicles Set that is limited to only 50,000. The US Mint has the chronicles set schedule for October, but without an exact date.

Lincoln Cent Sales2009 Lincoln Cent sales increased across all but one offering while the proof set containing just the four new pennies surpassed a new milestone.

The loser in the Lincoln product mix, at least from a comparative standpoint, was the Professional Life Two Roll Sets. 13,108 more were purchased from the US Mint, down from the 14,319 reported last week. However, the two-roll sets jumped over 200K to 204,472.

The Lincoln Cent Proof Set is again the leader in the group, increasing by 35,408 and flying over 100K. Between the sets launch on Aug. 26 and through to Sept. 6, which is less than two weeks, a total of 101,758 have been sold.

Lincoln Cent Sales2009 Lincoln Cent Proof Sets launched on Aug. 26 with a fair share of collector anticipation. Demand was solid during the first four days, but surprisingly not blockbuster strong as has been the case with past 2009 Lincoln penny product launches.

The difference is perhaps because many collectors have already ordered the proof coins via the other two sets they are included in -- the 18-coin clad proof set and the special silver proof set. Still, with the four coin Lincoln set priced at $7.95, this collector at least was anticipating bigger numbers. So how many were sold? The answer is 66,350.

In other numbers, Lincoln Professional Life two-roll sets dropped by more than 10,000 compared to the prior reported figures. 14,319 more were sold for a new total of 191,364. [click to continue…]

Lincoln Cent SalesIn a surprise move, the US Mint placed two-roll sets of the Lincoln Rail Splitter cents back on sale. The Mint had pulled the rolls right before the third redesigned Lincoln Professional Life Cent launched.

At the time sales were stopped, the two-roll sets had reached 300,246. A week later the numbers were revised down to 300,000, leading many to think future sales of the third and fourth penny roll set would have the same limit. Then, as of Sunday, Aug. 23, the sales figures were again trimmed to 296,000, and the rolls later went back on sale.

The news this week that will most affect sales going forward, however, is the launch of Lincoln Bicentennial Cent Proof Set. As in the other proof sets issued this year, the pennies within are [click to continue…]

Lincoln Coin SalesTwo-roll set sales of the 2009 Lincoln Professional Life Cent hummed strongly between their launch in Springfield, Illinois on Thursday, Aug. 13, and Sunday, Aug. 16.

The United States Mint reported that 152,146 two-roll sets were purchased by collectors. That is more than 15.2 million pennies. And with sets priced at $8.95 each, a tidy $1.36 million dollar revenue intake for the US Mint.

Perhaps more interesting is that initial sales are higher than the first redesigned penny but lower than the second. For the latter, during the same inaugural timeframe, two-roll Lincoln Rail Splitter sales hit 200,055. [click to continue…]
