in Bullion Coin Sales

US Bullion Coins & Sales American Eagle Gold and Silver bullion coins dipped in sales for a second straight week. However, June totals for each have already surpassed respective eagle sales in January and May. And there is still a potential for them to pass those from February by the end of business on Tuesday.

Silver eagles jumped up by 175,000 for a total of more than 13.5 million sold. Gold eagles increased by 20,000 to 667,500.

Remember that 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.

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