With Americans out voting in record numbers today, the U.S. Mint updated its figures to show a stunning amount of Silver Eagles sold during the first few days of November. The U.S. Mint sold nearly four times the Silver Eagles in the first two days of November than it did during the same month last year.
I thought Silver Eagle sales might slow a bit during the last few months of the year, but it seems as if demand for the official coin continues to be very strong. In my last update, I reported that the U.S. Mint sold a total of 3,397,000 Silver Eagles in October. However, with the most recent update on the U.S. Mint website, 1,6530,000 Silver Eagles were sold as of November 3rd.
