Perth Mint gold and silver bullion sales surge in September

The Perth Mint’s September bullion sales were boosted by the release of new Australian lunar gold and silver coins, such as the Australian 1oz silver coin for the Year of the Tiger 2022

Demand for Australian gold bullion rose in September, as figures from The Perth Mint show, with gold coin and bullion sales in five months, and silver coin and bullion sales in three months, the highest. The mint’s sales of minted precious metals exceeded not only those of the previous month but also those of the previous year.

Notably, the Perth Mint’s gold bullion levels broke a series of five consecutive monthly slowdowns that began after record sales in March.

Coin sales saw a backdrop of declining precious metals, with LBMA prices falling 4% for gold and 10.5% for silver.
