American Eagle silver bullion coins sales are on the threshold of setting records as year-to-date sales have never been achieved so early in the year.
U.S. Mint figures show American Eagle gold coin sales hit a three-year high of 209,500 ounces in April, the highest since December 2009 sales of 231,500 coins. These figures include 187,500 one-ounce American Eagle bullion coins.
Year-to-date total gold coin sales now stand at 502,000 ounces as of Tuesday, April 30th. American Eagle one-ounce bullion coins sales now stand at 434,000 ounces as of that date. U.S. Mint spokesman Michael White told Bloomberg that the one-ounce gold bullion coins are the most popular for investors.
Gold prices recorded their biggest one-day loss in dollar terms in 30 years on April 15th.
