US Mint Eagle Gold and Silver Bullion Coin Sales Rise

in Bullion Coin Sales

US Bullion Coins & SalesThe month of June started off reasonable strong for American Eagle sales. The US Mint moved more gold and silver bullion coins during week one compared to the final week of May.

In our prior two reports, the numbers were lopsided with gold and silver eagles splitting between good and humdrum sales. The latest US Mint figures show both bullion coins jumping with sales of silver eagles up 3.3 percent and gold eagles higher by 2.8 percent.

Gold prices moved swiftly higher until late last week, which likely helped the coins. But as always and for our weekly "disclaimer," given that the US Mint sells bullion coins only to authorized purchases who then sell to dealers or directly 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.

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