US Bullion Coins & SalesDespite a reduction in US bullion coin demand in the last seven days compared to the prior week, American Silver Eagles have topped a new milestone of more than 17 million sold in 2009.

Sales of the silver eagles did rise by 380,000, but that is actually less than the 485,000 increase seen during the prior reporting period.

American Gold Eagle figures declined as well, increasing 14,000 from the previous 26,000. For 2009, a total of 770,500 have been sold.

*As of Aug 10. The US Mint sells bullion coins, which are the non collector versions, only to its authorized purchasers who then sell to dealers and/or directly to the public. With that, some give and take and delay should be placed into the equation for judging "today’s demand" for these coins when having only Mint numbers at hand.
