U.S. Mint Silver-Coin Sales Rise to All-Time High in January 2013!

Sales of American Eagle silver coins by the U.S. Mint jumped to a record this month on increased demand for an alternative to currencies as the U.S. central bank presses on with unprecedented stimulus.

Sales surged to 7.42 million ounces so far in January, the biggest monthly total since 1986, when the Washington-based Mint began the transactions, Michael White, a spokesman, said in a phone interview yesterday. The figure compares with the 1.635 million ounces sold in December, according to mint data.
