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 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 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 [...]

British Pobjoy Mint offers aid to Hurrican Irma victims in the British Virgin Islands We've all been reading reports of the horrifying destructive power of nature yet again with the passing of Hurricane Irma through the Caribbean and onto mainland America, so it's good to see a mint make an effort. The Pobjoy Mint has long issued commemorative coins for islands that are not traditionally part of [...]
