Gold bullion in American Eagle form saw some movement this week as well. The 1-ounce version jumped an impressive 57,000 units, totalling 93,000 for the month of May thus far. May sales for both the 1/2-ounce and 1/4-ounce versions doubled last week’s numbers to total 2,000 and 8,000, respectively. After its giant leap last week, the 1/10-ounce version stayed quiet at 50,000.

The silver American Eagle doubled its sales from 425,000 last week to 850,000 this week, bringing the YTD total past 9 million.

A noticeable decrease in sales is seen in a few newly released products. For the 2022 Kennedy half dollars, the 200-coin bag came down by 3,355, while the two-roll set dropped by 703. The Zachary Taylor Presidential silver medal posted a decrease of 1,257.
