The United States Mint has updated its daily bullion sales report through to this morning, Monday, April 19, 2021 for the previous week. The bullion sales report reflects bullion coins that the Mint sold to Authorized Purchasers for the previous week. Overall it was a slow sales week for the Mint with just 469,000 bullion coins sold in the previous seven days.
Of the coins sold, the vast majority of those were the American Eagle silver one ounce coin. 457,000 of these were sold last week, accounting for 97.44% of all bullion sales for the Mint last week. Those sales pushed the silver American Eagle’s sales for 2021 to over 13 million coins (13,106,500), continuing to put it on pace to top 2020 in total sales.
The sister coin to the silver Eagle, the American Eagle gold one ounce coin, also enjoyed good sales this week. Seven thousand of the coins were sold to Authorized Purchasers last week, putting its total sales for the year at 387,000. The one ounce gold Eagle was the only gold coin in the series sold last week as none of the fractional coins – .5 ounce, .25 ounce, or .10 ounce – were sold. Meanwhile, the other United States Mint gold bullion coin, the American Buffalo, had sales of 5,000 coins last week. The one ounce gold Buffalo has now sold 119,500 times this year, also putting it ahead of its 2020 pace.
