The U.S. Mint sold 2,500 one ounce American Gold Eagle coins (AGE’s) in March 2018. This reflects a 50% decrease in sales of ASE’s from February 2018 when 2,500 were sold.

Sales of American Silver Eagle coins in March 2018 were down 84.4% from 16,000 sold in March 2018.

Sales of American Gold Eagle Coins

American Gold Eagle sales in January 2018 were a solid 36,000 sold, down, however from 86,50 sold in January 2017 and down from 38,000 sold in December 2017. February and March sales of 5,000 and 2,500, respectively, uncharacteristically low compared to recent years’ monthly sales.

Given that gold sales from Germany, to Turkey to India, to Russia to China, continue to be strong in 2018, low U.S. Mint gold sales are puzzling.
