Perth Mint's Sept gold sales double on month, silver up 78 pct

    Oct 3 (Reuters) - The Perth Mint's sales of gold products
doubled in September from a month earlier, while silver sales
surged 78 percent, the mint said in a blog post on its website
on Tuesday. 
    Sales of gold coins and minted bars jumped to 46,415 ounces
in September from 23,130 ounces a month ago, the mint said.
    Silver sales during the month also rose to 697,849 ounces,
compared with 392,091 ounces in August.
    The Perth Mint refines more than 90 percent of newly-mined
gold in Australia, the world's No. 2 gold producer after China. 
    Spot gold prices recorded their biggest monthly drop
for the year in September, pressured by the strength of the U.S.
dollar amid increasing prospects of a December interest rate
hike by the Federal Reserve.
