US Mint Sales: Bullion Silver Eagles Notch Second Highest Year

by Mike Unser on September 19, 2013 · 0 comments

Bullion American Silver Eagles

2013 bullion Silver Eagles this week moved up to the second spot for all-time highest sales in a year

Before jumping into the latest U.S. Mint sales of numismatic products, a quick sentence or two must be thrown at bullion Silver Eagles.

675,000 more were scooped up Monday, notching yet another milestone as their total this year hit 34,925,000. In annual sales rankings for the bullion coins, 2013 moved up to second place. Introduced in 1986, the top five American Silver Eagle annual sales years are:

  1. 2011 at 39,868,500
  2. 2013 at 34,925,000 with still 3 1/2 months to move higher
  3. 2010 at 34,662,500
  4. 2012 at 33,742,500
  5. 2009 at 28,766,500

In record year 2011, bullion Silver Eagles did not reach where they are now until October 8, 2011.

Moving to numismatic products, weekly sales continued higher for annual sets and commemorative coins. Some of that strength has come from the Mint’s Fall Catalog which was recently mailed to customers and prominently features the products.

Across the 5-Stars Generals and Girl Scouts Commemorative Coins, unit sales advanced 2,235 compared to the 2,195 previously. And core annual sets in clad and silver gained 39,945 against the prior 28,952. Sales totals for the commemoratives and annual sets in the week before the catalog hit the street combined to 1,224 and 20,265.

Sets and Silver Eagles dominated the weekly listing of top-ten sellers.
