Silver Sales at the Perth Mint in 2015

Sales of one ounce American Silver Eagle coins (ASE’s) at the United States Mint set a record in 2015 for the third year in a row.. The U.S. Mint sold 47,000,000 ASE’s in 2015 a 6.8% increase from 2014.

Sales of American Silver Eagles in 2015 were impressive, but were stunted by a production delay in July caused by overwhelming demand and persistent and restrictive allocations by the U.S. Mint to its Authorized Purchasers.

At the height of Great Silver Shortage of 2015, the Perth Mint stepped up in September with a new silver bullion coin, the Australian Kangaroo. The coin was an immediate hit and filled the silver coin shortage gap and propelled Perth Mint silver sales to record levels.
