Mint Statistics: More proof gold sold than bullion versions

Bullion sales began slowly in March. In fact, the pace is so lackadaisical that no gold Buffalo coins have yet been sold this month. I have left February numbers in the space. For Eagles, figures for both gold and silver barely crept ahead. Buyers have dramatically cut back on purchases. Added this week are 2017 proof gold Eagles. Notice their combined numbers are higher than bullion.

I have taken four Presidential First Day Covers off the list below because the Mint has not reported any sales in months. They are for William Henry Harrison, John Tyler, James K. Polk and Zachery Taylor. I might bring them back as they are still shown as available on the Mint website. Let’s see how it goes.

The gold Centennial coins have been moved to space below from a location on the opposite page. The gold Walker sold an additional 232 coins to reach 61,573. The gold Standing Liberty quarter was absent from the sales list, but is still available on the website.
