US Mint Bullion Coin Sales Figures Update – May 26

in Bullion Coin Sales

US Bullion Coins & SalesCompared to prior US Mint sales figures, the Eagle Silver Bullion coin total was unchanged while Eagle Gold Bullion coins remained level with a sales increase matching last week’s report. 9,500 more were sold.

As always, given that the US Mint sells bullion coins only to authorized dealers who then sell to the public, some give and take and delay should be placed into the equation for judging “today’s demand” when having just Mint numbers at hand.

However, there appears to be a slowdown in sales for silver eagles, with dealers likely not taking their maximum allotted quantities and leaving the Mint with inventory — which would account for the silver eagle figures not changing in over a week.

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