  • US Mint caught completely off guard by EPIC physical demand, SOLD OUT of Silver Eagles after burning through over 2 million oz in less than 2 hours Wednesday morning!
  • Primary Dealer of Silver Eagles CAUGHT OVERSOLD- reportedly cancels previously placed contracts for Silver Eagles- a completely unprecedented development!
  • Silver tests $15- are we staring at a 2008 Deja Vu collapse to support at $9? 
  • Not just the US Mint- Canadian Mint may be sold out of Maples as soon as Thursday, and one of the US’ largest  private mint HALTS SILVER ROUND SALES!

*Updated- shortage spreading to Silver Maples, SDBullion experiencing unprecedented demand for silver bullion

On Thursday, we alerted SD readers to the fact that the US Mint had sold out of Silver Eagles, selling over 6 million ounces over the first 9 days of sales in 2013, and was shutting down sales and production of Silver Eagles through at least 1/28, and would ration sales of eagles upon resumption of sales.

With a rapidly growing presence in the retail gold and silver market via SDBullion, we have had a unique perspective of the escalating physical silver shortage, and would like to give our readers an inside glimpse of the time-line of events evidencing a growing shortage of physical silver.

Full time-line of the developing silver shortage from a wholesale perspective is below:
