According to the data put out by the U.S. Mint, they have sold 27.5 million oz worth of Silver Eagles so far in the month of July. Furthermore, they show a total of 52.6 million for the year. I highly doubt they sold that many silver eagles, as it looks like they made a mistake with a decimal point.
It looks like they may have only sold 2,757,500 silver eagles in July, not 27.5 million. However, if they did make a mistake in a decimal point, 2.75 million oz of silver eagles is still a lot for half of the month.
If we find out that the U.S. Mint has sold 2.75 million silver eagles so far this month, they are on tract to sell over 5 million for the month of July.
We have to wait and see what is going on there at the U.S. Mint. I will provide an update when they finally get their figures straight.
