US Mint Bullion Eagle Sales Reverse

US Bullion Coins & SalesThe latest US Mint bullion coin sales figures show a reversal of sorts. In last week’s report, silver eagles sales showed a flat reading while gold eagles climbed. In this weeks numbers, gold eagles jumped by just 2,000 while silver eagles surged 302,500 higher.

May totals are now closed out. The month had some interesting developments. For the first month in many, Mint authorized dealers as a whole did not max out their allotted bullion coin orders. May also saw a huge spike in silver and gold prices — silver soared 27 percent while gold jumped 10 percent.

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 only Mint numbers at hand. Saying that, one could expect more movement in next week’s numbers given the latest surge in silver and gold prices.

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