After running out of 2015 1 oz. American Eagle silver bullion coins on July 7, the U.S. Mint has resumed sales to authorized purchasers. Reuters notes that the mint’s current inventory includes three million ounces—a modest head-start on production for a coin that sold 24,495,000 units so far this year.
Demand for bullion coins has been strong as of late. U.S. Mint gold bullion sales jumped sharply last week after the London Bullion Market Association (LBMA) assigned lower values to the commodity, making it more affordable. Thus far in July, the mint’s gold bullion sales stand at 143,000 ounces, up from a total of 76,000 for all of June. One-ounce gold bullion coins have sold 122,500 units this month; 1/2 oz. coins have sold 7,000; 1/4 oz. coins are up to 22,500, with 1/10 oz. coins at 115,000.
The LBMA currently lists the value of gold as $1100.00 per ounce; the same quantity of silver is worth $14.69. For more information on 2015 American Eagle gold and silver bullion coins, visit the U.S. Mint’s Web site.
