The pace of orders for the United States Mint’s 2012 San Francisco Silver Eagle Set have been accelerating as the offering approaches its final days.
The product contains proof and reverse proof 2012 American Silver Eagles bearing the “S” mint mark. The US Mint is only accepting orders during a four week window which began on June 7, 2012 at 12:00 Noon ET and will conclude this week on July 5, 2012 at 5:00 PM ET. Since the mintage will be based on orders received during this period, the sales figures have been closely watched by collectors.
Since the last post at the midpoint of the offering, the pace of daily sales has picked up. This may have been driven by the distribution of the US Mint’s 2012 Summer Catalog, which highlighted the offering to customers, and the orders placed by collectors who were waiting to place their orders towards the end of the offering.
Here are the daily sales figures for the entire offering. The first number column indicates the change from the previous daily total, while the second column indicates the cumulative sales total.
