In 2011 total Silver Eagle Sales in Dollars were 86% compared to Gold Eagle sales.
In 2012, that ratio has now moved up significantly to nearly 98%. 2009-2011 total dollar figures came from the 2011 US MINT ANNUAL REPORT. The 2012 figures were calculated taking the total sales ending in MAY 2012 times their respective average annual price according to Kitco.com.
It is plain to see that SILVER EAGLE SALES have been gaining on GOLD EAGLE SALES since 2009 and may even surpass them in 2012.
Looks like the rest of the year may turn out to be quite interesting…
