New York, NY (PRWEB) January 31, 2013
Gold’s 12 year bull market continued into the first month of 2013 with the U.S. Mint reporting landmark gold coin sales they haven’t seen for years. According to the U.S. Mint, in January 2013, American Eagle gold coins enjoyed their high sales of 124,000 ounces, the most since July 2010, when 152,000 ounces were sold. Silver demand increased to the point that the U.S. Mint had to suspend sales of its popular Silver Eagle bullion coins for almost the entire second half of the month in order to replenish supply. Experts at Gold Coin report that such exceptional sales attest to the confidence that precious metals provide investors, as well as to the potential for gold coins to profit and protect wealth.
Arthur McGuire, Vice President of Gold Coin, says, “We are encouraged, but not surprised by the outstanding performance of gold coins in the opening month of 2013. Gold is known for thriving in dire economic situations, such as the one in which we currently find ourselves, and which we’ll most likely see continuing in the coming year. As global economies continue to enact loose monetary policies and devalue their own currencies in desperate attempts to boost exports, we are going to see an increased interest in gold bars and coins, and silver too. Gold is money, it always has been, and it's about to play a major role in the global economic system. We project that precious metals are on the verge of taking off.”
