``The mint sold 10.7 million 1-ounce silver coins since July 1 last year, according to Sales and Marketing Director Ron Currie. That's 66 percent higher than the previous full fiscal year and about 10-fold more than five years earlier. Sales of 1- ounce gold coins will be close to a record, he said... "A lot of the buying is by people new to the market," with European and U.S. investors the most active international purchasers of the mint's products, he said. ''
