United States Mint sales figures list the total number ordered by its network of authorized purchasers at 3,679,500 for the month of August 2011 -- a level higher than the same time a year ago, better than July, and lifts 2011 to the second best Silver Eagle sales year.
In the shattered record column, Silver Eagles hit a new all-time high in August sales, blasting past last year's August record of 2,451,000 by over 50% [...]

Following two years of silence, the 2011 uncirculated Silver Eagle is set to make a comeback next month, according to an updated product schedule from the United States Mint.
The Mint's online schedule indicates that the newest American Silver Eagle is ready for a September 29, 2011 release at a yet to be determined price. The release date is not set in stone, as the Mint's schedule has been tweaked before after a coin addition. But changes this late into the year are less common.
The uncirculated Silver Eagle is one of the most popular products offered by the United States Mint, although it is the least purchased among the three versions produced. Perhaps one reason is its youth [...]
Investors purchased fewer American Eagle Silver bullion coins in July 2011 as compared to June, but a slowdown is typical for this time of year.

The 2011 Proof Silver Eagle had a rather generous limit of 100, meaning up to 100 of the .999 fine silver coins could be purchased per household. As such, removing the order limits should only affect buyers like dealers who resell the Eagles [...]

The level ranks as the seventh best in monthly sales for the American Eagle, marking a significant milestone given that the series was introduced a quarter of a century ago. [...]
