US Mint Sales: Silver Bullion Coins and Gold Bullion Coins

Bullion sales over the last seven days were the strongest of the month. For American Gold Eagles, the improvements come after several weeks of diminished demand. For American Silver Eagles, sales advanced upon already exceptional levels with the coins on Monday topping 33 million for the year. Before then, October 1 was the soonest the mark had been reached. That happened in 2011 when annual Silver Eagle sales stopped at a record of 39,868,500. This year the bullion coins are on track to top 49 million in sales.
