Investors Push Gold Eagle Sales To Record High
Investment demand for Gold Eagles surged during the last day in November pushing sales to a new monthly record. Not only did Gold Eagle sales for November reach a new record high for the year, it surpassed sales during the same month last year by 52%.
It seems as if investors are once again taking advantage of lower gold prices. I had planned to publish the article on Wednesday (last day of the month) showing that November sales hit a new record high, but the U.S. Mint updated their figures yesterday reporting another 20,000 Gold Eagles oz were sold on the 30th.
So, as of Nov 29th, the U.S. Mint Gold Eagle sales reached a new high for the year of 127,500 oz. Then they sold another stunning 20,000 oz in one day for a total of 147,500 Gold Eagle oz for November.
