It’s that time of the month when the United States Mint and the Perth Mint release their monthly bullion sales numbers, the former for its American Eagle coins in gold and silver, and the latter for total sales of both metals in coin and minted bar forms. None are as depressing as they have been so far in 2015, so it is possible a corner has been turned and interest, at least in the short term, may be returning.
American Gold Eagles, and Perth Mint silver are the standouts, especially the latter which remains the only one not to be coming off of some very poor numbers. While the others look good in comparison to how bad they’ve been in previous months, Perth silver is beginning to just look good, and with some new additions on the way, it may be a trend that is going to continue.
Check out the graphs and remember that they’re always available by clicking BULLION SALES on the main menu. We update them every month as well as the US Mints beautiful Bufallo coin sales that we we think sell in numbers not significant enough to determine market trends, but are worth noting regardless. We also keep tabs on another very important bullion coin series, the Canadian gold and silver Maple Leaf coins, but unfortunately, the Royal Canadian Mint only publishes numbers quaterly, and even then, quite late. We’re still waiting for numbers for the last quarter of 2014 which come out in the RCM’s Annual Report due pretty soon. As we stand today, their numbers are annoyingly six months behind.
