Sales of silver coins were strong last week at the United States Mint. More than 475,000 silver bullion coins were purchased by investors last week - a more than four percent increase over the week ago period.
Meanwhile, sales of the two coin set jumped more than 54 percent over the week before period. More than 250,000 units were sold and sales jumped more than 88,000.
The possible reason for the increased sales in silver coins could be the low relative price of silver coins compared with gold coins. Also the high premium on gold coins could be shifting investors to buy silver coins instead of investing in gold.
