The U.S. Mint figures show silver bullion coins sales continued to climb to 3,368,500 ounces for March 2013, up 826,500 ounces (32%) from 2,542,000 ounces in March 2012.
However, gold bullion coin sales declined by 500 ounces last month from 62,500 ounces in March 2012 to 62,000 ounces.
The U.S. Mint hit a record for the sales of American Eagle silver bullion coins in January at a total of 7,498,000 ounces, despite the fact sales were suspended for more than a week due to a lack of inventory. The previous all-time monthly high was 6.1 million ounces set in January 2012.
