The Silver To Gold Sales Ratio
Sales of silver have been proportionally far higher than sales of gold coins at the U.S. Mint in recent years. That trend continued in 2016 and was becoming less pronounced. With the drop off in silver sales in July and August and the firming gold sales the silver to gold sales ratio has fallen. The silver to gold sales ratio in 2014 was over 100:1 in 2014 and in 2015 it was 75:1. American Silver Eagle sales were on record pace in 2016 but fell sharply in July and August, while American Gold Eagle sales increased, resulting in a lower silver to gold sales ratio.
Sales of American Silver Eagles in the second half of 2016 were 56% lower than in the half of 2016. (26,250,500 ASE sold in the first half of 2016 vs 11,451,000 sold in the second half) Conversely, sales of one ounce American Gold Eagles were consistently strong all through 2016. (406,000 sold in the first half of 2016 vs. 411,500 sold in the second half).
