US Bullion Coins & Sales Bullion coin sales increased all around during the last seven days, as American Eagle Silver Coins jumped toward 15 million for the year and the American Eagle Gold Coins hit an even 700,000.

The gains were better than those from the prior week, although sales had likely been affected then by the extended 4th of July weekend.

Silver eagles are blazing forward. Sales surged by 800,000 compared to the prior week’s impressive 575,000 jump. Gold eagles improved by 17,500, which was better than the previous 15,000 tally.

In related bullion news, the US Mint over the weekend announced that it would strike Buffalo bullion coins, contrary to previous reports that it would not this year. The Mint is currently "developing a production and launch schedule." For more details, read the CoinNews article 2009 Buffalo Gold Coins to be Minted After All.

*As of July 13. 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.
