With continued strong demand for precious metals, U.S. Mint Gold Eagle Sales already surpassed last year’s total, and there are still four months remaining in the year. That turns out to be a great deal of investor money. At $1,900 per coin, that’s $1.6 billion so far this year. Also, Silver Eagle sales nearly reached four million in August. Most Dealers are still charging between $9-$10 over spot for the brand-new redesigned 2021 Silver Eagles. The U.S. Mint sold an average of 936,000 Silver Eagles per week and 32,400 oz of Gold Eagles per week in August. Thus, the Silver Eagle to Gold Eagle buying ratio has been lower this year at 27/1 due to the strong demand for gold. The U.S. Mint updated its website today, reporting 847,500 oz of Gold Eagle sold this month compared to 844,000 oz sold for Full-year 2020.
