During the first five days of availability, buyers took 31,000 one-ounce 2014-dated American Eagle bullion coins and 20,000 one-ounce 2014-dated gold Buffalo bullion coins.

However, both numbers were put in the shade by initial demand for tenth-ounce American Eagle bullion coins. The Mint’s Authorized Purchasers grabbed 80,000 of those.

Also sold as of Jan. 7 were 4,000 2014 half-ounce American Eagles and 10,000 quarter-ounce Eagles.

Even though the Mint allowed its Authorized Purchasers to buy only 2014 dates if they wanted to, demand was also in evidence for 2013-dated coins in the opening days of 2014.
