The U.S. Mint sold 97,000 ounces of American Eagle gold coins in the month of November. That’s 185 percent more than in the month of October, and 62 percent more than a year ago. Why? “There was a strong demand as spot gold prices fell around 7 percent to the lowest in nearly six years,” according to CNBC.
There is also a great demand for American Eagle silver coins. Sales of the silver coins were up 27 percent from October, and 41 percent more than from November 2014. The US Mint plans to stop making the 2015-dated coins on December 14. P.S. One ounce of the fine gold American Eagle sells for $1,410. The one-quarter ounce ($375) is sold out.
