*As of July 6. 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.
