The United States Mint has updated its daily bullion sales report for American Eagle and American Buffalo bullion coins. This summary report provides sales details through Sunday, March 6, 2022. 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. During the previous week, the Mint reported sales of just 43,700 bullion coins. That is down sharply from the 602,800 sold in last week’s report. Indeed, only 3 of the 7 bullion products reported on each week registered sales in the past week.
Of the American Eagle bullion products, only two registered sales in the past week: The one-ounce gold American Eagle and the one-ounce platinum Eagle. For the gold Eagle, 27,500 coins were reported sold to Authorize Purchasers in the past week while the platinum Eagle say 4,700 coins sold. None of the fractional gold Eagles nor the one-ounce silver Eagle had reported sales.
Turning to the one-ounce American Buffalo gold bullion coin, it enjoyed a good week in sales. The Mint reported that 11,500 of them were sold last week, putting the Buffalo’s sales total for 2022 at 95,000.
