"This is to inform you that due to recent increased demand, the United States Mint has temporarily sold out of its inventories of 2018 American Eagle Silver Bullion Coins.

The United States Mint is in the process of producing additional 2018 American Eagle Silver Bullion Coins. We will make these coins available for sale shortly."

If supply has run out because of “demand” shouldnt prices then be higher and not at rock bottom lows? Someone explain.

We are seeing record levels of short contracts in the future’s market, which pulls the price down. Physical demand is growing year over year and constantly setting new highs. Literally a no-brainer

Prices being manipulated by central banks, US debt clock values silve @$640 per Oz if you factor the debt and inflation. I say this is a big sale and i will go buy more, silver is the most under valued commodity on the planet and it stores so much value. Silver is up 1.1 million % in Venezuela right now because of the hyper inflation.

market fuckery using hedging algorithms, leveraged financial tools such as futures contracts and the ablity to only need to hold 1 OZ of actual metal for, in some cases, the value of 450 OZ on ‘paper’ derivative products. Reason: They don;t want you in silver gold or bitcoin. They want your money in treasuries/ DEBT !!
