by CoinNews.net on December 4, 2008 · 2 comments

US Mint Sales Figures ImageThree collector bullion coins have sold out since last week’s U.S. Mint sales figures were released.

And like last week, the biggest mover was the one-ounce 2008-W American Eagle Platinum uncirculated coin. It was the final available coin in the series, which helped drive demand until it sold out Wednesday. Sales of the collector coin increased 55.3 percent following its previous 46.5 percent rise.

Other sellouts include the American Buffalo gold proof quarter-ounce size (also on Wednesday) and the American Buffalo gold uncirculated 4-coin set on Monday. Sales of each had climbed 17.1 percent and 13.5 percent, respectively.

The final coin remaining in the Buffalo gold proof series in the one-half ounce size, which is showing very strong demand with an increase over last week of 24.8 percent.

Here are the latest Mint sales figures for the major American Eagle and American Buffalo collector products:

Has the Mint increased the price they charge their Distributors for Gold Eagles/Buffaloes and Silver Eagles? The prices these Distributors are now charging have more then doubled. What’s up with that?

Correction on the last comment
The ‘Premium'(price over melt value)these Distributors are now charging have more then doubled.
