Silver has been languishing in the low-mid 30 range for months now. Looking back on the sales of JUST silver eagles, and not counting generic rounds, bars, etc sold for investment purposes, and totally disregarding industrial use, where would the picture of US Eagle sales tell you silver is going ? 2002 - 10,539,026 Bullion American Silver Eagles were sold. 2003 - 8,495,008 2004 - 8,882,754 2005 - 8,891,025 2006 - 10,676,522 2007 - 9,028,036 2008 - 20,583,000 2009 - 30,459,000 2010 - 34,700,000 2011 - 39,868,500 (and the first year in which official coin sales surpassed domestic silver production) 2012 - One month into this year, sale are at 5,547,000......meaning yearly total could easily hit 60,000,000 if this pace continues.....nearly twice the entire mine output of the US. And this is JUST US Silver Eagles, remember. How much longer can they hold silver at 34 bucks ?
