We like our bullion coins, whether they are gold or silver. Both saw a nice hike in sales the past week.
One ounce bullion Eagle sales climbed 20,000 to a total 80,500 ounces. When fractional gold is figured in, the total number of gold bullion coins sold comes to 98,500 for a total of 83,000 ounces.
Sales of bullion silver Eagle 1 ounce coins rose by more than 1 million to a total of 4,724,400 1 ounce coins sold to date.
Sales for 2010 Union Shield two-roll sets keep gaining, with almost 400 rolls sold last week bringing the total sold to date to 170,604.
The new year is looking good for the 2011 proof coin sets containing 14 clad coins. More than 25,000 sets were sold last week, bringing the total sold to date to 279,023.
There’s not as much interest in the national parks quarters. Collectors only wanted 63 bags of the Hot Springs quarter.
