Room has been made for the 5-Star Generals Profile Collection, which includes an uncirculated commemorative silver dollar and half dollar as well as a medal. Price is $74.95. It has just gone on sale. The first sales numbers will be posted next week.
Gold American Eagle bullion coins have long been available, but this week their performance virtually matched the Profiles Collection. None except the half ounce was sold in the first week of August and only 1,000 of the half-ounce coins. Anyone looking for buying momentum to help gold rebound from present lows will find no encouragement in these weekly numbers. Even the one-ounce gold Buffalo outsold the Eagle, notching 2,500 coins.
On the other hand, 2013 silver American Eagle bullion coins have passed the 30 million mark.
Free shipping does not seem to have done anything to push sales higher yet, but then word might be slow getting out.
