Silver Eagle sales are on track to surpass the total sales for 2012 within the next 2-3 weeks. I forecast that total sales for Silver Eagles by the end of August will be 33 million oz. ...

Furthermore, Silver Eagle sales will hit a new all-time record this year by beating the past record set back in 2011 of nearly 40 million oz. I believe total Silver Eagle sales in 2013 will reach 45-47.5 million. The average monthly rate (excluding Jan) has been approximately 3.6 million ounces (Feb-July). This turns out to be 14.5 million oz for the last four months of the year. If we add 33 mil oz. + 14.5 mil oz we come up with 47.5 million oz.

On the other hand, if we take a conservative approach and attribute say a monthly 3 million oz, then the total for 2013 may be 45 million oz. Either way, its 12-19% more than 2011′s record.

Gold may stumble towards $1,400

http://www.cnbc.com/id/101146535

Demand for gold coins issued by the U.S. Mint, however, jumped in October after the budget impasse hit confidence in the dollar, causing a scramble into hard assets.

"Current demand has exhausted existing supply which has led to a mini-surge in newly made American Eagle gold bullion coins," said Edmund Moy, Chief Strategist at Morgan Gold and a former director of the U.S. Mint. "October sales so far of 39,000 ounces have tripled from September sales of 13,000 ounces." This showed investors who previously questioned gold as a safe-haven are "rethinking their doubts."

With today’s update of 500,000 Silver Eagles sold, bringing November’s totals to exactly 1,000,000, the US Mint has just set an all-time sales record for Silver Eagles, eclipsing the previous annual record of 39,868,500 oz set in 2011.

With the US Mint alerting primary dealers last week that 2013 production will shut down on December 9th, it appears that the powers that be do not wish to allow 2013′s all time silver eagle sales record to get too far out of hand.

A new record was reached Nov. 12 for sales of silver American Eagles.

The U.S. Mint said total purchases had reached 40,175,000.

This surpassed the previous record high set in calendar year 2011 when 39,868,500 were sold.

Sales, of course, are not yet finished for the year. The Mint will take its last orders for 2013 coins on Dec. 9, so it is possible that another 3 million or so coins will pad the new record.

The premium charged by wholesale dealers for American Eagle coins from the U.S. Mint may rise to 17 percent from 14 percent yesterday, said Frank McGhee, the head dealer at Integrated Brokerage Services LLC in Chicago. The mint has said that weekly allocations will ease.

... Yesterday, the mint said 89 percent of this week’s quota of 3.58 million 1-ounce silver coins were sold following a halt in sales on Dec. 9 because of a lack of supply. ...

“The market is tight,” McGhee said in a telephone interview. “The drop in prices has made silver coins very attractive.”

On Jan. 8, the mint said that the quantity of coins in weekly allocations “will be much lower” than this week. Michael White, a mint spokesman, declined to comment on a specific figure. ...

On Monday, the U.S. Mint updated their Silver Eagle sales figures to 1,442,000 oz. Mr. White sent me an email stating that they sold 592,000 Silver Eagles on Monday and the total allocation for the week was 900,000 oz.

As you can see from the U.S. Mint figures below, they sold an additional 249,500 Silver Eagles today (Tuesday) for a total of 1,691,500 coins.

Silver Eagles Update 21114

Total Silver Eagle sales for Monday & Tuesday hit 841,500 oz. Thus, the U.S. Mint only has 58,500 Silver Eagles to sell to its Authorized Dealers for the rest of the week.

Furthermore, Silver Eagle sales continue to outpace Gold Eagle sales in a big way. For the month of February, here are the total sales of Gold & Silver Eagles to date:

Gold Eagles = 11,000 oz

Silver Eagles = 1,691,000 oz

Silver to Gold Eagle Ratio = 154/1
...
http://srsroccoreport.com/u-s-mint-n...irst-two-days/

Adjust the last figures to dollar equivalents and I'm seeing:

Gold - 11,000 toz x $1,250/oz - $13,750,000

Silver - 1,691,000 toz x $20/toz - $33,820,000

Silver to Gold dollar investment ratio ~ 2.46 : 1

That's significantly higher than the even money that Sprott has been touting for a while now.

It will be interesting to see how this demand, which is a snapshot of overall world demand, works out when mines start shutting down around the world and the gold/silver runs out.

buckle up 'fellas.

Went by the LCS today and asked him if he had any gold eagles in stock. He said no, so I asked him what he had in 1ozt gold. He checked in the back and was surprised when he found a few gold eagles. 2010 AGEs. No 2013 or 2014.

Effective Monday, June 2, 2014, the United States Mint’s American Silver Eagle bullion coins will no longer be subject to allocation. For the first time in more than sixteen months, authorized purchasers will be able to order the coins without limitations.
...
Despite the restraints on availability, year to date Silver Eagle sales have reached 21,436,500 ounces according to the latest data available on the Mint’s website. The current sales level and the removal of allocation create the possibility for another annual sales record. During 2013, the Mint had sold a record high 42,675,000 ounces.

In the first eight days in October, the U.S. Mint sold 2,250,000 Silver Eagles and is on track to being one of the strongest months of the year. Even though sales were strong last month, the weekly average of Silver Eagle sales in September were only 1,305,000… 42% less than the current trend in October.
...
In addition, investors are purchasing a hell of a lot more Silver Eagles than Gold Eagles:

2014 Silver Eagle Sales = 34.5 million

2014 Gold Eagle Sales = 404,000 oz

2014 Silver-Gold Eagle Ratio = 85/1

After the U.S. Mint updated its bullion figures on Monday, 2014 Silver Eagle sales reached a new annual record surpassing last years total by nearly 200,000. Not only was 2014 a banner year for world’s most sought after official coin, the Silver-Gold Eagle ratio also hit a new record high.

The U.S. Mint sold nearly a half million Silver Eagles over the weekend, putting the total for December at 1,317,000. This strong weekend demand pushed total annual Silver Eagle sales to 42,864,000 over last years previous record of 42,765,000. Furthermore, there are still a few more weeks remaining in the month.

As we can see from the chart above, investors purchased 82 Silver Eagles for every Gold Eagle ounce in 2014. ...

The U.S. Mint just released its FY 2014 Annual Report and the total Dollar sales of Silver Eagles surpassed Gold Eagles by a wide margin. ...
...
According to the data put out in the U.S. Mint 2014 Annual Report, total sales of Silver Eagles were $850 million compared to $693 million in Gold Eagle sales.
...
While FY 2014 Silver Eagle Dollar sales surpassed Gold Eagles, if we add Gold Buffalo sales, then total gold bullion sales were higher than silver sales. Again, according to the U.S. Mint, 178,000 Gold Buffalos were sold at a value of $234 million. If we add this to the $693 million of Gold Eagles, we get a total of $927 million for these to official gold coins.
...
http://srsroccoreport.com/fy-2014-si...y-wide-margin/

Total gold sales exceeded silver? That sounds like a significant change from previous reports (where Sprott highlighted money flowing into these products at a 50:1 ratio), but perhaps earlier reports were only comparing Eagles to Eagles and not considering Buffaloes too.

Does this also take into account fractional gold eagles? Also the mint makes a butt load of other coins in silver too. Can't they put out how many of each coin were sold? and then a total weight for each metal sold? It seems to me it wouldn't take much of a program for the mint to keep track of that.

The U.S. Mint's sales of American Eagle coins surged in November, with gold nearly tripling month-over-month and silver already reaching a new annual record as bullion prices fell to multi-year lows, data released on Monday showed.

The mint sold 97,000 ounces of American Eagle gold coins in November, up 185 percent from October and 62 percent higher from a year ago, after selling out of most of the 2015-dated coins as falling bullion prices attracted buyers.
...
Toward the end of this month, the mint said it had sold out of all remaining 0.1-ounce, 0.25-ounce and 1-ounce American Eagle gold bullion coins dated 2015 and would not be making any more for the calendar year.

Demand for American Eagle silver coins has also been strong, with year-to-date sales already reaching an annual record at 44.67 million ounces, breaking the full-year record of 44 million ounces in 2014.
