The United States Mint has updated its daily bullion sales report through Sunday, March 5, 2023. 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. The Mint reported 535,000 bullion coin sales to Authorized Purchasers last week, with all American Eagle gold and silver products and the American Buffalo having reported sales.
The top-selling bullion product for the United States Mint last week was the one-ounce silver American Eagle. The Mint reported 450,000 of the silver Eagles were sold last week, pushing total sales for the year to 4.849 million. Meanwhile, the one-ounce gold American Eagle had strong sales of 32,500 coins during the past week. That puts its sales total for 2023 at 159,500.
According to the Mint’s report, all of the American Eagle gold fractional coins had sales to Authorized Purchasers last week. The 1/2-ounce Eagle had sales of 7,000 coins, the 1/25th-ounce had 10,000 coins, and the 1/10th-ounce Eagle had 20,000 coins sold in the past week. The only American Eagle bullion coin with no reported sales was the one-ounce Platinum Eagle. That coin has not yet gone into production.
Turning to the American Buffalo gold coin, the Mint reported 16,000 coins were sold in the last week, pushing total sales for the year to 80,000 coins.
