US Mint Sells Much More Silver Than Gold Coins In H1 2014

The chart below “US Mint Coin Sales: Gold vs. Silver” shows the dollar value of gold eagles and buffaloes versus silver eagles that have been sold each month by the U.S. Mint for about the last three years. Chart courtesy: Goldchartsrus.

The interesting observation is that most months of the first half of this year, silver coins were more popular than gold. January 2014 was the only significant exception. One should note that this chart shows the dollar value of gold vs silver coins. As silver is about 60 times less expensive than gold, it means that the number of coins sold were many times higher than the number of gold coins sold.
