Silver Eagles sales exceed all time high

It was only a little over a week ago that the release of the October US Mint sales numbers showed the record for Silver Eagle coins was looking to be exceeded in 2013.  The US Mint have now notified that through full immediate take up of the next release they have sold 40.2m coins YTD compared to the previous high at the height of the silver market in 2011 of 39.9m.  Further they are finishing for the year on 9 December.  Premiums continue to rise and the coins will be harder to come by as demand continues with people understanding low silver prices do not reflect the same (indeed stronger) fundamentals as 2011 for holding physical gold and silver.  Ainslie Bullion currently have stock of Silver Eagles available.
