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, with the same month a year ago. The second graph shows sales for the year to date and compares them with the same period last year. Everything green in colour is the latest figure.
Hopefully, this will give a better indicator of the trends rather than focusing too much on the individual month and the new graphs help visualise it better. Our Bullion Sales page remains live and tracks the official figures from the last six years. Those graphs really do give a good look at the state of the market compared to the previous half-decade and it’s permanently accessible on the main menu under RESOURCES.
We’re looking at getting less confusing numbers from the Royal Canadian Mint, but at present they’ve changed reporting by lumping everything in together whereas the previously listed out the bullion coins seperately. They also only report quaterly and even then with some delay, so for now at least, we’ll continue to leave them out. Any comments, feel free to leave them below.
