Gold Maple

From the SRSRocco Report:

The Royal Canadian Mint just published its Q2 2013 Fiscal Report showing that it sold 403,000 oz of Gold Maples in the 13 week period ending on June 29th, 2013 compared to 165,000 in the same period last year.  Furthermore, Silver Maple Leaf sales increased to 6.4 million Q2 2013 compared to 4 million in Q2 2012.

Q2 2013 Canadian Maple Leaf Sales

Here we can see that Silver Maple sales have increased 60% y.o.y (year over year) while Gold Maples are up a staggering 144%.  As mentioned above, what is even more surprising is that Gold Maples have surpassed Gold Eagles during this time period.

The U.S. Mint sold 336,500 oz in Gold Eagles during the second quarter of 2013, whereas the Royal Canadian Mint recorded 403,000 in sales.  Gold Maple sales were 20% higher than Gold Eagles during Q2 2013.

Canadian Maple Leaf sales year to date are on track to beat both 2012 and 2011 records.  In the first 6 months of the year, Gold Maple sales were 664,000 oz compared to 302,000 oz in 1H 2012 and 502,100, 1H 2011.  Silver Maples increased to 12.1 million up from 8 million, 1H 2012 and 11.4 million in 1H 2011.

Even though Silver Maple sales (+53%) are up considerably since last year, Gold Maples (+123%) have increased the most in percentage terms.  Furthermore, total Gold Maple sales in 2012 were only 883,048 oz, while 2011′s record was 1,150,285 oz.  If the present trend continues, we may see 1.2-1.3 million oz of Gold Maple sales for 2013.

Additionally, Silver Maple sales are on track to reach 24 million oz in 2013 which will beat the sales of 18.1 million in 2012 and possibly the 2011 record of 23.1 million.

Together, Silver Maple and Silver Eagle sales will hit between 68-71 million oz in 2013.  This is an amazing figure as it represents 9% of total world silver production of 787 million ounces in 2012.  Also, we must remember this 9% investment demand is just from these two Official Mints.

If we consider the sales of additional commemorative silver coins as well as sales from the other official mints, total figures for 2013 will more than likely top 2011′s total of 118.2 million oz (2013 World Silver Survey) by at least 10 million oz.

Even though sales of official gold and silver coins have picked up dramatically, this is only a preview of the huge demand to come in the future as the public wakes up to the GREAT PRECIOUS METAL TRANSFER OF WEALTH.

  1. Much lower gold to silver sales ratio here. Anyone know why? because the gold Maple is not ugly on one side?

    • Thing is, add in a million wildlife silver bullion coins on top of that maple total, not to mention 10 or 20 thousand 1.5oz polar bears then your ratio gets worse. It is curious. My scientific wild ass guess is rich asian canadians!
       
      Also as mammoth said, the sagle ratios are distorted by the sale of some new buffalos. Either way the monumental sales for canada are unbelievable. Yet the price was smashed.

    • haha, i do hate the reverse of the AE.

  2. Yes, but customers are not bound to a national mint anyways. Perhaps when 100oz of counted silver Maples/Eagles are sold, someone gets an uncounted gold bar of huge size. Gold funds with physical storage (the ones that are for real) seem more popular than silver anyway. Try and stuff $1mio of silver in a vault.
    And yeah, for a rich Canadian it’s easy to send your kids to all coin shops and get gold maples. Unregistered, easy to come, by often in stock. I just suppose.
    Two wildlife coins were featured in this 2013 season, although the Antelope may have been sold mostly in 2012 with the Bison a pure 2013. And is that the Polar Bear mintage, roughtly? I might own a full percentile then :-)
     

    • No idea on the actual polar bear total. I have a tube and I’ve heard reportedly 20 thousand or so..I’d love to know how much investment silver and gold in coinage and bars were sold thus far. Mint coins off the charts, by proxy we know generic rounds are too. Nevermind 100 oz bars are tough to get. COmbine this with mine production issues and I am praying we see a supply shock.

  3. Man, is this info ever inconvenient for those who have been trumpeting that the gold and silver bull markets are dead.  Well, that may be their desire but it is a LONG ways from the reality of the situation.
     
    Speaking of which… the ASEs that I ordered on 8/5 arrived today.  They are gorgeous coins and add nicely to the stack.  The price was really good as well.  Thanks to Charlie for nagging us all mercilessly to “keep stacking”.  I was planning to buy some anyway but he definitely urged me over the top.  THANKS, Charlie!  Appreciate it, Bro.  :-)
     

  4. I dislike both sides of the ASE. It’s a like a promising Wonderland sign behind which you see stinky destroyed wasteland.
    And a **** price for a by-hour motel.
    Glad to get the War Bird and soon Walker rounds :-)
     

  5. Maples are much cheaper than ASEs here in EU, so we tend to prefer them over ASEs, also less waiting time.
    But the Wiener Philharmonikers are even cheaper and more popular here. I wonder how many do they make.
