4,588,000 Ounces of Silver

With the month about two-thirds gone, the US Mint has already sold 4,588,000 ounces worth of silver bullion through the American Eagle Bullion Program. The total sales for ounces of gold has reached 75,500.

The amount for silver is significant since it already marks a monthly record for American Silver Eagles. The previous record occurred when the US Mint sold 4,260,000 coins in November 2010.

The US Mint has been selling 2011 Silver Eagles since January 3, 2011. Added to this amount are some remaining 2010 Silver Eagles that remained within inventory at the start of the year. Sales have been subject to “standard allocation,” which is the US Mint’s fancy way of saying “rationing.”

The price of silver has recently pulled back from over $30 per ounce to $27.50. Are investors using this as an opportunity to increase their positions?
