US Mint Silver Coin Sales Lower, Silver Eagles Flying

US Mint silver coin sales statsUS coin sales are usually mixed with both ups and downs when comparing week-over-week performances. Not so for last week. Sales declined for all US Mint collector silver coin and set offerings.

However, in what could be a hint for next week’s collector coin numbers, bullion silver coins (non collector versions) have been blistering hot. 2009 Silver Eagle sales neared 15 million on Monday, falling shy of the threshold by just 100,500. By Tuesday, the goal was less than 51,000 away. And by Wednesday total sales of the bullion coin jumped over the 15 million barrier.

An impressive 1,625,000 have been sold during the first 15 days of this month alone, reaching a new grand total of 15,499,500. If the pace continues, July will end up as the best month for the coins this year.

The following table has the latest US Mint stats for collector silver coins and sets.
