The US Mint announced that it’s sold a record amount of American Eagle silver bullion coins for the third year in a row. In 2015, sales of the coins reached 47,000,000 ounces, higher than the 44,006,000 ounces sold last year and the 42,675,000 ounces sold in 2013.

As quoted in the press release:

The Mint broke last year’s record Nov. 30 when sales reached 44,666,500.

To add further perspective to the demand for Silver Bullion Coins, for the first 22 years of the American Eagle Silver Bullion Coin Program, the Mint typically sold between three million and 10 million ounces per year. Since 2007, sales have increased nearly five-fold from 9,887,000 in 2007 to more than 44 million last year.
