US Precious Metal Coin Shortage Continues

Seems the US Mint just can’t keep up with gold and silver demand. Continuing silver, gold and platinum shortages have forced the mint to curtail production on many coins. A year ago they offered:coin-silver-eagle-wht-back_70x70

Now (March 2009) the only coins from the above list you can still get are:

American Silver Eagle 1 oz Bullion Coin (investor)
American Gold Eagle 1 oz Bullion Coin (investor)

*The term “uncirculated” refers to the specialized minting process used to create these coins. Although they are similar in appearance to American Eagle Bullion Coins, these new uncirculated coins are distinguished by the presence of a mint mark, indicating their production facility, and by the use of burnished coin blanks, which are hand-fed into specially-adapted coining presses one at a time.

Each American Eagle Uncirculated Coin is carefully inspected before it is encapsulated in plastic. With its pristine finish now protected, each American Eagle Uncirculated Coin is placed in a traditional, satin-lined velvet presentation case. A Certificate of Authenticity is included with each American Eagle Uncirculated coin.
