While sales of American Silver Eagle coins set a record in February, it is likely more would have been sold but for the U.S. Mint’s rationing of sales. According to Coin News the U.S. rationed sales to its Authorized Purchasers because of a silver planchet shortage.

Buy Silver Eagles SD Bullion

  1. I contributed my fair share of ASE’s for February 2016.

    We stackers just need to double our acquisition purchases or have a relative or close friend start to buy on a monthly basis.

    Keep stacking till it hurts, then stack some more.

  2. All good news in silver  maybe we should by gold too  but then again we havnt seen that big price jump yet .Where is my phony he could  have an insight to whats really going on then i can gamble some more

    AFTER SUPER TUESDAY AFTER YOU VOTE FOR MR TRUMP BUY BUY THE CABAL IS ON ITS LAST LEG 50 PLUS THIS WEEK OR MORE

    GOD BLESS THE STACKERING

    • A vote for Trump will put us on the last leg…he needs to stick to reality TV and leave the governing to more stable people. He has said what most people are thinking but that doesn’t make him Presidential material. Whatever it takes to get the current moron out of office and make sure he isn’t replaced with Hildabeast, moron number 2.

    • @CADDIMAN: I heard a Rubio speech on you tube earlier and he was talking about how America couldn’t let his fingers near the nuke buttons! LOL After they’ve let the Bush and Clinton crime families and a Chicago radical communist Muslim Alinski ite have their fingers on it.  So when I heard him (and have heard others saying that) it struck me! We know TPTB want a war, a big one, to blame the collapse on. What they’re worried about is that Trump WON’T go along with their war plans or their collapse plans…  they really may not own him and their necks could be stretched if he wins! He hasn’t been taking their money. This is why they are freaking out and appear to be trying to stop him at all costs. Then again they may just be fooling us again and he really is their republican, who knows.

    • @possum

      We are already on our last leg thanks to the current administration and the the two before that!  Electing another politician (from either party) will change nothing.  Not that TRUMP is the best answer, but at least he is not a politician, and he is not controlled by outside money.  There may not even be a 2016 election but if there is, TPTB will silence TRUMP, they can not allow a non-politician into the White House.

      Keep smiling, stay positive, stack ’em if you can, and just hope for the best.  TRUMP is most likely the best, or the lesser of all the evils.  But it’s highly unlikely he will be the chosen one.

    • As a frog, I shall vote Marine Le Pen, the only one who talks about Gold. I I were american, I would, of course vote Trump…

      Have you noticed that the politician of the Establishment never talk about Gold and Silver…?

      The zionist main stream media in France never, never, never, even, mention Gold ! it simply does not exist…

  3. Big Deal the mint sold all these coins. Until they run out of physical the price is going no where . On a side note thanks for the cheap monster box this week. 83 to 1 and it comes out of the ground at 10 to 1 how long can this paper game go on ?

    • The silver/gold ratio of the mint is determined by production limitations, and has nothing to do with the COMEX, ratio in the ground,  ratio of production of the base metals, or sales.

      I believe most of the production is being bought by JPM, not the retail public.

      They are buying everything that the public does not, and occasionally even more, resulting in rationing, which they would prefer to avoid to help keep prices low.

       

       

    • @AKGONCI

      I’ll store it for a fee! I’ll even let you look at it from time to time! 😉 Hahahaha

      Like you I backed my truck errrrrr Corolla up for a whole 40 more ozs…

      Dammit payday get here faster!

    • @scoremore

      Yep I’m buying 90% like crazy right now.   I don’t think we are going to see sub $14 silver again though it would be nice!!  The only thing is I’m wondering if this is mass short covering by the banks?  The g/s ratio is extremely high and the major banks were in huge short positions last month in both gold and silver.     I’m hoping this is only temporary and I can buy the dip on gold.  I’m really short in gold right now which is driving me nuts.  Need to cover some sales.  I’m pissed I didn’t split that monster box in January when they were $8100.   augggghhhhhhhh!!!!!!!! I’m really starting to believe we could see a good runup1
