One-ounce silver American Eagle coin sales have reached 911,000 for the month of June a couple of days before the end of the month. Will they pass one million? Whether they do or not, the important thing is June sales of 911,000 exceed the 835,000 sold in April. April will keep its title as the lowest silver Eagle bullion sales month of 2017.
In terms of ounces sold, the 5,500 gold Eagles figure is below the April total of 6,000.
It is another slow and dull sales week for other Mint sales options. The proof 2016 silver Eagle moved ahead by 1,397 to 563,008 while the 2017 proof silver Eagle advanced by 2,646 to reach 278,199.
Buyers took 1,314 uncirculated 2016-W silver Eagles to push the running tally past 200,000.
Beating the performance of the collector silver Eagles was the 2017 American Liberty silver medal. It rose by 2,963 to 36,038.
