The United States
Mint informed its authorized purchasers Nov. 13 that its inventory
of 2015 American Eagle quarter-ounce gold bullion coins are sold out
and that no more quarter-ounce coins will be struck.
"We will continue to sell our remaining inventories of
2015-dated American Eagle one ounce, one-half ounce and one-tenth
ounce gold bullion coins until those inventories are depleted,"
according to the Mint's Nov. 13 announcement. "No additional
2015-dated production will follow after that."
Through Nov. 13, 2015 sales of American Eagle quarter-ounce gold
bullion coins had reached 152,000 of the $10 face-value coins. The
Mint's 2014 sales reached 118,000 of the quarter-ounce coins.
Cumulative American Eagle gold sales totals for 2015 can be found here.
The gold American Eagles are sold by the Mint through a network of
authorized purchasers who buy the coins based on
the closing London PM price of gold per troy ounce, plus a 7 percent
premium. The coins are then sold to other dealers and the general public.
