The United States Mint has updated its daily bullion sales report through Sunday, October 16, 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 the report, the Mint sold just 27,500 bullion coins to Authorized Purchasers. In fact, all of those sales were of the one-ounce American Buffalo gold coin. No American Eagle products – gold, silver, or platinum – had reported sales last week.
Across nearly all bullion products, the United States Mint sales lag significantly when compared to 2021. This largely due to the Mint’s inability to get adequate numbers of planchets to press into coins.
