Mint Suspends American Silver Eagle Sales

July 7, 2015

ALERT! -- We have received word through an industry source that the U.S. Mint temporarily suspended sales of American Silver Eagles due to strong investor demand.  It intends to resume sales in two weeks.  The Mint sent out an announcement to this effect earlier today.

USAGOLD has experienced strong demand for both gold and silver coin and bullion items over the past two weeks. Today’s price drop has encouraged another wave of interest.  At the moment,  the production shutdown has NOT extended to American Gold Eagles.

Typically, these production shutdowns translate to higher premiums for contemporary bullion products. At this time, we have limited availability of American Silver Eagles, priced right and our normal quick delivery times are still in place.  Please call if you have an interest in reserving items from the remaining inventory.
