The United States Mint has updated its daily sales report of bullion sales through to this morning, February 15, 2021. The report shows that the Mint in the last week has sold 539,500 bullion coins across the American Eagle and American Buffalo bullion coin products. The report reflects the continued demand for bullion from the United States Mint to be at a record pace.
The single largest selling bullion product through to January 15, 2021 was the American Eagle silver 1-Ounce bullion coin. Another 500,000 of these were sold to Authorized Purchasers in the past week, putting the total sales of the coin at 6.896 million coins for 2021. For the month of February so far, 2.121 million coins have been sold, far out distancing sales of 650,000 in February 2020 with roughly half of the month remaining.
For the week, 37,000 American Eagle gold 1-Ounce coins were sold to companies in the Mint’s Authorized Purchaser’s program. That puts sales for the year at 292,5000. Much like its silver counterpart, the gold American Eagle sales in February 2021 have eclipsed those of last year by a significant margin. In February 2020, only 3,500 of these coins were sold with this month’s total already at 101,500.
During the week leading up to this report, the Mint did not sell any of the fractional American Eagle gold coins.
Finally, the Mint sold 2,500 American Buffalo 1-ounce gold coins in the last week. That puts its sales total at 73,000 for 2021 so far. For the month of February, 11,500 of these bullion coins have been sold versus the 1,000 sold in the same month last year.
