The United States Mint has updated its daily bullion sales report to Monday, November 15, 2021. The bullion sales report reflects bullion coins that the Mint sold to Authorized Purchasers for the previous week and is different than the weekly numismatic product report. This week’s report shows that the Mint sold 65,800 bullion coins to Authorized Purchasers in the past week, down significantly from the over 500,000 coins sold in last week’s report.
Usually, the top bullion seller for the Mint is the silver one ounce American Eagle. This week, however, the Mint reported no sales of this coin. It was the only American Eagle bullion product that did not have any reported sales. All of American Eagle gold coins from the one ounce to the 1/10th ounce had reported sales as did the one ounce platinum Eagle. The top seller was the one ounce gold American Eagle with 26,000 coins reportedly sold in the past week.
The other bullion coin the United States Mint offers, the one ounce gold American Buffalo, had strong sales of 18,000 coins according to the Mint’s report.
For 2021, all of the bullion coins offered by the Mint except the silver Eagle has now sold more coins than in 2020.
