The United States Mint has updated its weekly bullion sales report for the week ending Sunday, September 4, 2022. The bullion sales report reflects bullion American Eagle and American Buffalo coins that the Mint sold to Authorized Purchasers for the previous week and is different than the weekly numismatic product report. According to this week’s report, the United States Mint sold 448,500 bullion coins in the past week to Authorized Purchasers. This marked improvement over the last report, on August 21, 2022.
American Eagle bullion coin sales to Authorized Purchasers in this week’s report were limited to two coins: The one-ounce silver and one-ounce gold Eagle. The Silver Eagle was the top seller, with 425,000 coins sold. This pushes total sales for 2022 to 12,406,500. That total is well below the 22 million coins the Mint had sold by this last year. The gold one-ounce Eagle had reported sales of 16,500 coins. That put its total sales for 2022 at 729,000 coins. This is just slightly behind the 748,000 sold through this time last year.
Rounding out sales for this week was the one-ounce American Buffalo gold coin. According to the Mint’s report, 6,500 of these were sold last week. Total sales for the year now stand at 316,500, well above the 235,500 sold to this point in 2021.
