Rising physical silver investment demand will put a record squeeze on North American supply this year.
The charts below show just how much the surge of Silver Eagle and Maple Leaf sales have totally overwhelmed domestic silver mine supply from the US and Canada. While silver is still relatively cheap and abundant, there will come a time where silver producing countries such as Mexico and Peru will hold onto more of their mine supply for their own citizens.
Precious metal investors and especially the ignorant public have no clue just how little silver there is to go around when its true STORE OF WEALTH properties are realized:
This is a STUNNING statistic…
As the death of the world’s reserve currency grows closer, the U.S. continues to export one hell of a lot of gold. Matter-a-fact, the U.S. exported so much gold over the past three years, it suffered a deficit large enough to equal two years worth of its domestic mine supply:
Investors tend to forget that the situation in the market can change on a dime.
While I believe things can get very interesting in the silver market over the next year, it’s not a guarantee that the silver shortage will destroy the paper price within a year.
That being said, a Black Swan event would seriously disrupt the highly leveraged financial market and cause the silver market to seize up as physical investment demand skyrockets.
When the BRICS countries (Brazil, Russia, India, China & South Africa) complete their new trade settlement system, this will put a serious hurt on the perceived value of the U.S. Dollar. This is precisely why it is wise to own physical gold and silver assets outside the banking system. If you own paper gold or silver located at a bank vault, chances are the metal may not be there when you finally ask for it.
Time to make sure you own the REAL MONEY.

While the Mainstream Media and Financial Network hacks delude Americans into believing the Fed and U.S. Treasury are in control of the financial and economic system, investors continue on a record eight-year buying spree of silver. This multi-year buying trend of silver is unprecedented in history.
As precious metal analysts-investors bicker about whether THIS IS A SILVER SHORTAGE or not, the U.S. and world moves closer to the worst collapse in human history…
In an ironic twist of fate, the mining conglomerate Glencore is seeking to pay down its massive debt by selling…. future gold and silver output.
There is no other way to describe the radical change that has taken place in several areas of the silver supply market this year other than to say…. it’s quite SHOCKING.
While certain analysts stated that the silver supply would indeed fall this year, I don’t believe anyone could have envisioned the kind of declines experienced in the chart below.
I thought there might be a chance that this silver data was incorrect… a typo of some sort.
However, the second quarter figures that were just released confirm just how dreadful silver supply has fallen…
Not only has the present retail silver bullion product shortage continued for several months now, what happens if it never ends?
This may seem like a play on hype, but if the U.S. or World experiences another Black Swan event like the Lehman Brothers collapse in 2008, physical silver demand will likely explode to levels much higher than today…
After JPMorgan just experienced a STUNNING 45% loss of registered gold stock in a single day, the COMEX now holds a total of 163,334 oz (5 metric tons) of gold in its Registered inventories for ALL BANKS… LOL.
While the current shortage in the retail silver market continues to stress investors as they have to wait 6 to 8 weeks for certain products, it seems to be carrying over into the 1,000 oz wholesale silver market.
One of the leading indicators of the wholesale silver market is the COMEX Registered Silver Inventories:
