The U.S. Mint updated its sales figures today… and it was another whopper. Yesterday, the U.S. Mint sold 825,500 Silver Eagles which was about two-thirds of the weekly allocation.
The U.S. Mint raised the total allocation to its authorized dealers this week to 1,250,000 compared to 750,000 last week. Today, the U.S. Mint sold another 346,000 Silver Eagles for a total of 1,171,500.
Not only has this been another excellent month (so far) for Silver Eagle sales, it is an all-time record for February:
FEB 2010 = 2,050,000
FEB 2011 = 3,240,000
FEB 2012 = 1,490,000
FEB 2013 = 3,368,500
FEB 2014 = 3,671,500
