US Mint Sells Nearly 4 Million Silver Eagles First Day of 2013 Production!

In mid-December, the US Mint announced the suspension of Silver Eagle sales for 3 weeks, as they shut down ASE sales early for 2012, and announced that sales of 2013 Silver Eagles would begin on 1/7/2013.

For the first week of 2013 the mint’s 2013 silver sales totals remained at 0 with production halted, but that changed quickly Monday, as the US Mint announced 3.937 million Silver Eagles were sold in a single day on Monday 1/7!
