By | 2018-06-07T18:01:35+00:00 June 7th, 2018|Categories: News Nuggets, Marketwatch|

May 2018 silver and gold sales at the US Mint and the Perth Mint We've made a few changes to the format for showing how well, or badly, the US Mint and the Perth Mint are doing with their bullion sales and hopefully we'll stick with this one. The first graph in each section will compare the months sales figures with the previous month and more importantly, [...]

Perth and US Mint bullion coin sales show little change in a relatively stagnant April

By | 2018-05-09T21:50:02+00:00 May 9th, 2018|Categories: News Nuggets, Marketwatch|

Perth and US Mint bullion coin sales show little change in a relatively stagnant April Very little of note with sales of Eagle bullion coins, or of bullion issues at the Perth Mint compared to April 2017. That must come as some relief after a succession of terrible reports, but we need to remember that overall numbers remain at a much lower level than just a couple of years [...]

March bullion coin sales figures are out for the US Mint and the Perth Mint. They’re not good.

March bullion coin sales figures are out for the US Mint and the Perth Mint. They're not good. The tales of woe continue at the United States Mint with some truly terrible numbers of gold and silver Eagle bullion coins sold in March. Last year was one of the worst for ages, but 2018 has so far utterly failed to approach even those unadventurous targets, with gold [...]

Perth Mint silver sales were the only bright spot in a poor February for the big mints

By | 2018-03-07T09:17:54+00:00 March 7th, 2018|Categories: News Nuggets, Marketwatch|

Perth Mint silver sales were the only bright spot in a poor February for the big mints We always expect numbers in February to be below those in January, so the comparison is not a particularly telling one, but comparing to the same month in 2017 is considerably more relevant. On that metric it seems that the Perth Mint is doing considerably better than the United States [...]

Gold and silver at the Perth and US Mints up on December but way down on January 2017

By | 2018-02-12T22:28:37+00:00 February 12th, 2018|Categories: News Nuggets, Marketwatch|

Gold and silver at the Perth and US Mints up on December but way down on January 2017 It's fair to say that 2017 sucked for bullion coin sales at both the Perth and United States Mints and that the Royal Canadian Mint likely suffered just as badly. Well 2018 is a new year and it brings new hope for increased numbers. If January is any indicator [...]

December shows signs of an upturn in sales, but 2017 experienced huge overall drops

By | 2018-01-09T14:54:39+00:00 January 9th, 2018|Categories: News Nuggets, Marketwatch|

December shows signs of an upturn in sales, but 2017 experienced huge overall drops With 2017 now behind us and the mintage figures available to peruse, it's a good time to look at just how bad the year has been for the United States and Perth Mints. Throughout the year our tables have been filled with red numbers instead of green, indicating drops in numbers compared to [...]

Down they stay. Perth and US Mints bullion sales continue an epic bad year with a terrible November

By | 2017-12-06T19:01:33+00:00 December 6th, 2017|Categories: News Nuggets, Marketwatch|

Down they stay. Perth and US Mints bullion sales continue an epic bad year with a terrible November We we're hoping for better news this month as the year draws to a close, but it seems that bullion coin sales at both the Perth and United States Mints, remain firmly on the floor. No bright spots or signs of hope this month as every metric is showing [...]

Perth Mint silver sales in October get a little bump but everything else is bottom feeding

By | 2017-11-01T13:27:19+00:00 November 1st, 2017|Categories: News Nuggets, Marketwatch|

Perth Mint silver sales in October get a little bump but everything else is bottom feeding We seem to be just peddling doom and gloom every month when looking at the bullion coin sales of the big three mints that publish regular figures. The fact remains that there's little to be optimistic about. Where there are signs of improvement they tend to be slight and fleeting. When the news [...]

October, 2017

The Perth and US Mints gold and silver sales remain at depressed levels. Silver Eagle collapsed.

By | 2017-10-05T09:10:57+00:00 October 5th, 2017|Categories: News Nuggets, Marketwatch|

The Perth and US Mints gold and silver sales remain at depressed levels. Silver Eagle collapsed. April. That's how long it took to sell three million more Silver Eagle bullion coins in 2016 than the United States Mint has managed to sell until the end of September 2017. Let that sink in for a moment. The first nine months of this year have seen the mint sell [...]

The drop in silver and gold bullion coin sales at the major mints continues in August

By | 2017-09-10T22:02:49+00:00 September 11th, 2017|Categories: News Nuggets, Marketwatch|

The drop in silver and gold bullion coin sales at the major mints continues in August No sign of an upturn in bullion coin sales at the Perth and US mints yet again, with only gold sales at the Perth Mint showing an uncharacteristic rise. Sales of PM gold bullion are virtually unchanged from July, but up almost 60% on August 2016 to 23k ounces. The same [...]
