UK Royal Mint Runs Out Of Sovereign Gold Coins 1-8-14

One Week Into 2014, UK Royal Mint Runs Out Of Gold Coins
1-8-14

The U.K.’s Royal Mint said it ran out of 2014 Sovereign gold coins “due to exceptional demand.”

The mint expects to have stocks of the coins again by the end of January, it said in a statement e-mailed today. Gold dropped to a six-month low of $1,182.27 an ounce in London on Dec. 31, capping the largest annual decline since 1981.

“Since the dip in the price of gold we have seen increased demand for our gold bullion coins from the major coin markets, and this presently shows no sign of abating,” the mint said in the statement. “The Royal Mint continues to supply to its customers and is increasing production to accommodate the higher demand.”
