2018 was another poor year for bullion coin sales at the US Mint, but Perth shows positive signs Time for a look at how well the United States Mint and the Perth Mint did in 2018 at shifting their gold and silver bullion products. Overall, the report card would read 'not great - but could have been worse'. The Perth Mint has shown greater resiliance in the [...]

ITS ALIVE! Signs of recovery in gold and silver bullion sales at the US and Perth Mint's It appears the death of silver and gold bullion at the Perth and US Mints has been exaggerated. In what is the first real positive piece of news so far in 2018, there have been some great leaps in sales over the last two months. Gold has proven particularly popular [...]

Gold sales rise, but silver continues to struggle at the Perth and United States Mints A quick look at sales of the gold and silver American Eagle coins, as well as minted gold and silver at the Perth Mint, has uncovered no signs that the woes of silver will be abating any time soon. Both mints have seen a continued collapse in sales, with only an unexpected [...]

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+00:00May 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+00:00March 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+00:00February 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+00:00January 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+00:00December 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 [...]
