The United States Mint has released the opening day sales figures for the 2015 US Marshals Commemorative Coins. The program includes proof and uncirculated $5 gold coins, silver dollars, and clad half dollars, which went on sale yesterday.
The top seller by unit volume was the individual proof version of the silver dollar at 24,057 units. This was followed by the individual proof half dollar at 14,212 units. The 3 coin proof set was also popular selling 9,421 units from the 15,000 product limit.

Looking at the total sales for each coin across all product options, the $5 gold coin made the biggest dent in the overall maximum mintage. Across the individual proof, individual uncirculated, and 3 coin proof set options, total sales for the $5 gold coin reached 14,442 pieces, accounting for 14.44% of the 100,000 maximum mintage.
Across all options, the silver dollar sold 43,678 units, representing 8.74% of the 500,000 maximum mintage. Lastly, the half dollar reached sales of 31,282 pieces, representing just 4.17% of the 750,000 maximum mintage.
As expected, these opening sales figures are far below the opening sales levels for last year’s blockbuster 2014 National Baseball Hall of Fame Commemorative Coin Program, which saw an opening day sell out of the 50,000 $5 gold coins and sales of 156,675 silver dollars and 73,354 half dollars.
The sales levels for the US Marshals Commemoratives have exceeded the opening sales levels for the next prior year three coin program for the 5-Stars Generals. In 2013, during the first week of sales across all options the $5 gold coin reached 7,883, the silver dollars reached 21,120, and the half dollars reached 19,810.
