This week’s US Mint numismatic product sales report includes the debut numbers for the 2011 United States Army Commemorative Coins. This program includes three different designs offered in proof and uncirculated versions.

The Army Commemorative Coins went on sale January 31, 2011. The US Mint offered each coin for sale individually, with no multi-coin sets or other packaged collector products available. There were no household ordering limits imposed, and coins carried discounted introductory pricing, which will remain in effect until March 2, 2011.

Through the sales reporting date February 6, 2011, the US Mint had received orders for a total of 10,906 of the $5 gold coins, comprised of 7,861 proofs and 3,045 uncirculated coins; 67,593 of the silver dollars, comprised of 46,895 proofs and 20,698 uncirculated coins; and 49,690 of the half dollars, comprised of 30,162 proofs and 19,528 uncirculated coins.

Last year, the US Mint had offered two commemorative coin programs, which included only silver dollars. The 2010 American Veterans Disabled for Life Silver Dollars had debuted with combined sales of 98,358. The 2010 Boy Scouts of America Centennial Silver Dollars had recorded initial sales of 214,673. In total, the US Mint would sell 267,740 and 350,000 for each of the programs, respectively.
