End-of-the-month numbers show the Mint is still cranking out a lot of coins. Silver Eagles jumped by 450,000 pieces in a week. Demand is higher still. Any business would love to have that problem.
Mint Stats: Silver Eagles up at month end
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.
