2008 US Mint Coin Production Figures

With 2008 behind us, we can take a look at the full year 2008 coin production figures provided by the US Mint. It’s a common observation that coin production falls in slow economic times, and that observation was certainly proven true by the 2008 figures. Production was down across all denominations.

Year over year declines were measured for every denomination. Total coin production for 2008 was 10.14 billion, down from 14.44 billion in 2007.

Here are the totals by denomination and mint. The 2008 table is followed by a production table for 2007, for comparison.

Is there any info on the production figures of the Proof or Silver Proof coins/sets available? The “S or W” mint figures would be interesting to see, but I’m not sure if the Mint keeps these records up to date or not.

Thanks…

unfortunately, there’s nothing official on the proof or silver sets yet. for some reason it take the mint years to finalize this data.
