US Mint Coin Sales to June 2009

American Eagle Gold Bullion CoinThe US Mint has released the latest coin sales through to June. The tables below show several of the popular coins and sets with their total performance results as of July 5.

Demand for 1 oz silver and gold bullion coins are exceptionally high this year, so we will start with those numbers:

2009 Bullion Coin Sales
Gold Eagle Coins 670,500
Silver Eagle Coins 13,824,500

 

2.2M Silver Eagle Bullion Coins were sold in June alone, making it the third best month of the year for the eagles. The coins are on an annualized pace to shatter last year's record of more than 20.5 million sold. The gold eagles are looking to have one of their best years as well. 2009 could potentially rank anywhere from 1-3 in terms of best year. And that goes back to the start of the series in 1986.
