Neil Vance, Group Manager of Minted Products remarked on the Perth Mint Blog:
“In October, our ability to supply silver coins returned to volumes dictated by standard weekly manufacturing capacity. As demand remained extremely strong, we had to allocate coins to clients worldwide. October’s sales graph reflects the number of silver coins we were able to deliver given current capacity, rather than the actual demand we experienced.”
Silver sales at the U.S. Mint declined slightly in October from September due to reduced Authorized purchaser allocations. The U.S. Mint sold 3,788,000 one ounce American Silver Eagles (ASEs) down from 3,804,500 ASEs sold in September. ASE sales set monthly sales records June, July and August 2015 despite U.S. Mint production halts and allocations.
