US Mint Bullion Sales Up

After a slow November, the US Mint reports that sales of bullion coins – both gold and silver – were up for December, continuing the trend since 2008 of huge growth in collectors buying silver and gold.

Silver had the largest increase for December, and although gold was up, sales of gold coins for the year 2011 are down overall,  sliding gradually over the year with just a couple monthly peaks of large sales.   The peak in December seems to coincide with a price drop that has continued into January.
