Check the running annual sales totals for American Eagle and Buffalo bullion coins in the right-most column. This week’s numbers jumped by more than the numbers indicated by the September monthly box at the bottom of this page because of additional sales made in the final two days of August. These end-of-month numbers were substantial for the one-ounce silver Eagle where another 1,415,000 coins were sold in addition to the 175,000 at the beginning of September. This brings the running annual total to 29,126,000 coins.
The silver American Eagle sold to the bullion market saw its May monthly total rise by another 72,500 to 1,516,000 coins. The demand for these is still exceeding supply and every additional coin is being eagerly snapped up.
OK. Are you ready to be a tiny bit confused about bullion coin sales? The bullion Eagle and Buffalo sales were updated Feb. 6, but no February sales had occurred for Buffaloes or American Eagle gold coins, so the monthly figures are the final January monthly totals.
