US Mint gold bullion coins see explosive sales in March

CoinNews/Mike Unser/4-14-2023

“Sales of American Eagle and Buffalo gold bullion coins from the U.S. Mint experienced an incredible rally in March, rocketing from the prior month, and far beyond last year’s sales figures from the same month.”

USAGOLD note: Demand for gold and silver bullion coins is running strong, driven by safe-haven investors looking for an alternative to bank savings. The US Mint reports a 277% gain in sales of the American Eagle gold bullion coin over last month and a 38% gain over the same month last year, according to CoinNews. Demand for the American Eagle silver bullion coin in March was at par with last month, but ultra-high premiums have channeled strong global demand to lower premium alternatives like the Canadian Maple Leaf and the Austrian Philharmonics. Combined sales of American Gold Eagle and Buffalo gold bullion coins posted their best month in five years at just over 280,000 ounces.
