The San Francisco Mint’s inclusion in American Eagle silver bullion coin production in 2011 is necessary in part because Mint officials anticipate sales in 2011 being from 28 percent to nearly 43 percent higher than the record 2010 sales of 34,662,500 silver bullion coins. Other contributing factors to the decision are production, at the West Point Mint, of Proof versions of both the 2011 U.S. Army and 2011 Medal of Honor gold $5 half eagles, and of up to 2 million National September 11th Memorial and Museum 1-ounce, .999 fine silver medals authorized under Public Law 111-221.

“Demand for silver bullion remains at unprecedented levels,” [Tom] Jurkowsky said.
Hmm, I wonder why that is Tom? You suppose it has anything to do with all that unbacked green paper and base-metal slugs the bankers have tried to pass off as money? Gee I dunno Beav.

There is a theory out there, that our nation is on the threshold of a return to sound money, and sound banking.

"A false balance is abomination to the LORD: but a just weight is his delight."
