Mint Statistics: It’s All About Silver and Gold

This week’s report, which might be one of the most active we’ve seen so far this year, is all about silver and gold.

We’ve added two new 2021 silver dollar products to the charts this week: the Morgan dollar with no privy mark or mintmark and the Peace dollar. Both coins went as quickly as they came on the Mint’s website, reaching their mintage limits in a flash.

Another popular coin made its debut, followed by a quick sellout: the 2021-W American Liberty gold 1-ounce coin. The 24-karat gold coin with a high-relief proof finish reached its mintage cap of 12,500. You’ll find it in the Collector Eagle Sales chart below.

The fourth and final addition is the 2.5-ounce silver Armed Forces medal honoring the U.S. Coast Guard. It hits the sales charts with a total of 8,213.

This week we see a huge jump in sales of the 2021-S silver proof American Eagle with new design. It went from 13,986 in our last report to a whopping 198,487. The “W” version saw a respectable increase, too, with a jump from 299,843 to 312,195.

Gold and silver bullion have been moving and shaking as well. Buffalo gold jumped from 3,000 to 23,000 for the month of August. American Eagle gold bullion saw an 80,000 increase in 1-ounce, a 35,000 jump in 1/10-ounce, and the 1/2- and 1/4-ounce are now on the board for the month.
