The first weekly sales report of the 2014 Everglades 5-ounce silver bullion coin indicates that 22,000 have been purchased. This places the coin well over sales of the previous release, the Great Sand Dunes, currently at 16,400. Sales of the Everglades coin were probably spurred on by lower silver prices.
For the same reason, sales of gold and silver bullion in October were high, with 57,500 one-ounce gold and 5,790,000 one-ounce silver American Eagle bullion coins sold.
Bullion coin sales in the first four days of November kept up the momentum, with 11,500 one-ounce, 1,000 half-ounce, 2,000 quarter-ounce and 5,000 tenth-ounce gold American Eagle bullion coins purchased. The same period also saw buyers pick up 1,055,000 silver American Eagle bullion coins.
The 2014 gold Kennedy half dollar had sales of over 1,000 since last report, going from 65,039 to 66,054.
The 2014 silver Kennedy four-coin set, released on Oct. 28 had 85,670 sold in the first 12 hours, was up to 125,147 sets purchased as of Nov. 2.
