Here we’ll keep all six graphs covering the Perth mints bullion sales, the RCM’s Maple Leaf bullion coin sales, and figures for sales of the American Eagles. We’ve also added the American Gold Bufallo as well, to see if it tracks any differently to the far bigger selling Gold Eagle, but numbers are too low to use for determining trends in bullion.
The Perth Mint issues numbers on a monthly basis and that’s when we’ll update the data. The United States Mint publishes weekly figures, but our data will be updated monthly, as weekly data is too variable to be a reliable indicator. Unfortunately, the Royal Canadian Mint only publishes quaterly and not very promptly either, but they do have reliable data going back further than the Perth Mint.
NOTE: As of 2017, the RCM publishes total bullion sales numbers in its quaterly report and doesn’t break out coin sales seperately. We’ve estimated figures based on the ratio between coins and the total figure in the previous year, but this is an estimate and should not be regarded as definitive. The graphs are accurate for 2016 and before.
