The Mint has yet to update Silver Eagle sales totals as they stated they will not begin selling them until Jan 7th, but we expect the Mint’s silver eagle sales totals too be off the charts as well- particularly as production has been stopped for over 3 weeks.

  1. Maybe delayed December deliveries they didn’t want in the 2012 figures? 
    I’ve worked for an American company. They’ll move heaven and early to improve this month’s figures at the cost of next month’s, and this year’s at the cost of next year’s.
    Could anything else explain these numbers? Doesn’t PM sell best when rising fast?

  2. All these reports of elitists resigning their positions and holing up in ‘gated’ enclaves and now this thing about Geithner wanting to ‘bug out’ as quick as possible is drawing an ominous specter. Combined with these amazingly high ‘elitist money’ figures on the tail of suspending ‘commoner’s money’, only darkens the picture. Too many signs for me to ignore.
     

    • Agreed, Pat.  My own sense is that there is a lot of smoke obscuring our vision these days.  Some of what we are hearing is true but much is not; planted to make us think that we know what is true.  Gold and silver ARE money.  That is truth.  Not that everyone out there recognizes or accepts it as truth.  But they will… THEY WILL!
       

  3. With other articles claiming sales of gold coins are down you can really smell the psyop when the mint posts sales like this. And the wealthy are getting ready to hole up to try and avoid what is coming. We should start a project to find all their hidey holes and get them published on google earth.

  4. regardless the more that is sold the less gold in general circulation …

  5. plenty of people still stacking
