US Bullion Coins & SalesAmerican Eagle Gold and Silver Bullion Coins closed out with differing performances. For July, gold eagle sales registered toward the bottom of the monthly ladder. Silver eagles were one rung from the top. Both bullion coins are on track to have an exceptionally impressive year.

The US Mint sold 86,000 one-ounce gold eagles in July. Only May had fewer sales. On the other hand, buyers purchased 2.81 million silver eagles in July to make it the second best month of the year, right behind March.

While last month may have been slower for the gold coins, the yearly tally of 756,500 is on pace for a record year. More so for silver eagles. 16,634,500 have rushed out of the Mint’s inventory this year. It seems most certain that last year’s record of more than 20 million sold will be shattered.

As far as weekly numbers, both silver and gold eagles compared better than the prior week. The former upped by 485,000 over the previous 450,000. Gold eagles surged by 26,000 from the prior 4,000.

*As of Aug 3. 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.
