US Bullion Coins & SalesAmerican Silver Eagles passed a huge milestone Friday, topping an impressive 20,000,000 sold. More than likely, by next week’s time the eagles will record an all-time yearly high that reaches back to the series start in 1986. And that’s with a few months left in the year.

American Gold Eagles are still moving exceptional well compared to the last two months, although new weekly orders were down slightly from the last report. The gold coins jumped up another 20,000 versus the prior 24,000. Year-to-date sales for 2009 are at 945,000.

*Figures as of Sept. 28. 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.
