November silver Eagle sales have inched past the September figure and now stand at 385,000 pieces. September sales of 320,000 remain as the lowest monthly total for 2017. Perhaps December will nudge September aside? We’ll see.
Clad proof sets continue the tear they have been on. They are traditionally purchased as Christmas gifts. This year the habit continues. In the past week, buyers took 16,636 more sets. The running tally is approaching half a million, but this is more than 100,000 sets behind the 2016 number.
Proof silver Eagles moved ahead by 6,369 this week. Sales this year are lagging by more than 200,000 coins, the 2016 total.
Is anyone still following the 225th Enhanced Uncirculated Set? This week, 332 were returned. The current sales number is 210,338, nearly 15,000 fewer than a sellout.
Commemorative sales remain slow.
