The US Mint has, effective immediately, suspended all production of American Silver Eagle Coins. If you want to buy this product you need to do it NOW because once this becomes widely known, the price is going to shoot up.
Something stinks here and it is not my feet. I fear a bank holiday may be close at hand with this move by the mint.
FROM THEIR SITE:
American Eagle Silver Uncirculated Coin Production of United States Mint American Eagle Silver Proof and Uncirculated Coins has been temporarily suspended because of unprecedented demand for American Eagle Silver Bullion Coins. Currently, all available silver bullion blanks are being allocated to the American Eagle Silver Bullion Coin Program, as the United States Mint is required by Public Law 99-61 to produce these coins “in quantities sufficient to meet public demand . . . .”The United States Mint will resume the American Eagle Silver Proof and Uncirculated Coin Programs once sufficient inventories of silver bullion blanks can be acquired to meet market demand for all three American Eagle Silver Coin products.
Update: Due to the continued, sustained demand for American Eagle Silver Bullion Coins, 2009-dated American Eagle Silver Uncirculated Coins will not be produced.
