The American Eagle bullion gold and silver cumulative totals in the right-most column will change to a running total for 2011 pieces when the February numbers start appearing in the monthly box. In the meantime, the January sales numbers include leftover 2010-dated coins. The Mint had 469,500 silver Eagles and 53,000 one-ounce gold Eagles remaining as 2010 closed.
The sold-out proof 2010 silver American Eagle total increased 3,644 to an even 860,000. The four-coin gold proof set rose by 158. Only the quarter-ounce and tenth-ounce gold proofs are still being sold. Buyers took 333 more 2010 proof gold Buffaloes.
