Followers of silver bullion coins will note that the Mint has sold 4,330,000 American Eagles in March, a figure that beats the February total of 3,750,000.
They should also note that the Mint began selling the 2014 5-ounce America the Beautiful silver bullion coins. The Great Smoky Mountains design has gone on sale and the initial sales figure is 12,200. That is a fairly strong start considering that final sales figures for last year’s designs came in at 30,000 or 35,000 each.
