2009 may be a disaster for the Silver Eagle?
I just looked again at the Mint website, and took a pair of paragraphs of their Eagle page. It is as follows:
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."
Let's hope they get some silver before 2010? It would be like the year the Yankees lost the pennant.
Well......in case you weren't informed, you have a little more now.
Hasta la vista!
