January US Mint Silver Eagle Sales Pass 6 Million, Mint Suspends Sales, States Eagles Are SOLD OUT!!

*Update: as if on que, the Mint has just notified the primary dealers that Silver Eagles are sold out, and that sales are suspended effective immediately through 1/28!

The US Mint reported another 1 million Silver Eagles sold Thursday, bringing the January sales total to an astonishing 6.007 million ounces in less than 2 weeks of sales! 

With nearly half of January remaining, it is now all but certain (barring a complete shut-down by the mint) that January 2013 Silver Eagles sales will absolutely shatter the all-time monthly sales record for the Mint set in January 2011 at 6,422,000 ounces.

The Mint is currently on pace to sell a COMEX sucking 12.66 MILLION OUNCES OF SILVER EAGLES IN THE FIRST MONTH OF 2013, more than the YEARLY sales total for ANY year prior to 2008 at the US Mint!!!
