The top three official mints sold a great deal of retail silver bullion products in the first half of 2020. However, the sales figure could have been a great deal higher if the various government mints weren’t forced to shut down production. The top three official mints in retail silver bullion sales are the U.S. Mint, Royal Canadian Mint, and the Perth Mint.
According to the data from the 2020 World Silver Survey, for last year’s figures, the Royal Canadian Mint sold 25.8 million oz (Moz) of silver bullion products, followed by the U.S. Mint at 19.5 Moz and the Perth Mint with 12.7 Moz. The majority of the 19.5 Moz of U.S. Mint silver bullion products sold last year were from the 14.9 Moz of Silver Eagles and 1.5 Moz of the Five-ounce American The Beautiful Silver Coins with the remainder in Silver Eagle Proofs, collectibles, and various numismatic coins.
