After three weeks without any sales updates, the United States Mint has finally updated its daily bullions sales report this week. The update brings sales figures for American Eagle and American Buffalo bullion products up-to-date as of Sunday, July 3, 2022. Normally in this report, we bring you an update of bullion sales week-over-week. Because of the delay in updates over most of June, this week’s report will bring you up-to-date on sales totals for the different bullion products sold by the United States Mint. As a reminder, 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.
With sales figures now caught up, we have a better picture of how many bullion coins that the United States Mint has sold this year to Authorized Purchasers. Starting with the American Eagle one-once silver coin, the Mint reports that it has sold 10.6425 million coins so far in 2022. This is substantially behind the 15.9 million that the Mint had reported sold through June 2021.
Turning to the gold American Eagles, the Mint report shows that 622,500 one-once gold Eagles have been sold so far this year, more than had been sold through June of last year. The 1/2-ounce Eagle has had 64,000 coins sold this year, up from the 46,000 that the Mint had sold through June 2021. The 1/25th-ounce Eagle now has a sales total of 126,000 coins while the 1/10th-ounce Eagle has sold 475,000 coins so far this year. Both the Quarter-Ounce and Tenth-Ounce coins are ahead of their sales pace from last year. Finally, the last American Eagle bullion product, the platinum one-ounce coin, has had sales of 58,500 coins so far in 2022. This is down from the 75,000 that the Mint reported sold through June of last year.
Moving to the one-ounce American Buffalo gold bullion coin, the Mint is now reporting that 253,000 of them have been sold this year. This is well ahead of the 193,500 that the Mint reported being sold in the same time period in 2021.
For the year, the United States Mint is now reported that 12,241,500 bullion coins have been sold to Authorized Purchasers this year.
