US Bullion Coins & SalesThe demand for US Mint gold and silver bullion coins retreated during the prior seven days, according to new US Mint stats.

American Silver Eagles figures have remained the same, at 1,625,00 for the month, since Oct. 20.

The last update for American Buffalo Gold and American Eagle Gold coins was a day later, or Oct. 21.

There is the possibility that the US Mint has not updated their public numbers, but that would be atypical of recent months when daily or nearly daily changes occurred.

Here are tables containing the most recent US Mint sales figures of bullion coins:

*Figures as of Oct. 26. 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.
