Perth Mint’s Gold & Silver Bullion Sales Drop to 3 Month Low

 -- Published: Tuesday, 5 August 2014 | Print  | Disqus 

Today’s AM fix was USD 1,292.75, EUR 965.03 and GBP 765.71  per ounce.
Yesterday’s AM fix was USD 1,293.50, EUR 963.57 and GBP 768.93 per ounce.

Gold fell $4.80 or 0.37% yesterday to $1,288.50/oz and silver slipped $0.15 or 0.44% to $20.19/oz.

Gold is marginally higher in London this morning and overnight in Singapore, gold remained in a tight range between $1,286/oz and $1,290/oz. Gold climbed toward $1,300 an ounce after a gauge of China’s services industries sank to a record low, leading to safe haven demand and a decline in equities.

Gold is 7.5% higher this year partly on tensions in Ukraine and in the Middle East and the increasing risk of trade, economic and currency wars.

Silver for immediate delivery rose 0.3% to $20.26 an ounce. Spot platinum increased 0.3% to $1,465.63 an ounce, while palladium added 0.2% to $851 an ounce.

The world's largest gold ETF, New York's SPDR Gold Trust <GLD>, reported its first outflow since July 24 yesterday, of 1.8 tonnes. Holdings fell 0.2% to 800.05 metric tonnes. This has taken its overall holdings back to just over 800 tonnes. Institutional money is being allocated to gold again as seen in the rising ETF numbers in recent weeks.

In the physical markets, buying remained subdued in the seasonally quiet summer period.

Premiums for gold bars in India remain depressed as they do in China. In top buyer China, local premiums to the global benchmark were steady near $3 an ounce.

Premiums in other parts of Asia have also largely remained steady over the past several weeks.

The Perth Mint's sales of gold and silver bullion fell to a three-month low in July, as increasing

hope about global economic growth curbed appetite for the precious metal among some bullion buyers.

The Perth Mint which was established in 1899, operates the only gold refinery in Australia, the world's second-biggest gold producer after China.

Sales of gold coins and minted bars decreased by almost half to 25,103 ounces in July from the same period a year ago, the mint's data showed.

Silver sales totalled 577,988 ounces last month. Gold and silver sales in July were the lowest since April.

Note: Sales figures in ounces. Gold sales include coins and minted bars. Silver figures include only coins as the mint does not issue silver minted bars.

Gold prices slipped over 3 % in July as some positive economic data may have reduced demand for gold despite rising geopolitical risk.

Data from the U.S. Mint showed that gold coin sales in July fell about 40% from a month ago. Gold and silver bullion coin buyers have secured their allocations and there is very little new entrants into the bullion market which  has contributed to falling demand recently.
