The demand for American Silver Eagles (1 oz silver bullion coins), the official silver bullion coins of the U.S.A., is nothing short of explosive at this stage. This is despite the fact that less than 1% of the world population gets (or understands) silver.
The U.S. Mint has sold a record 737,000 American Silver Eagles on the 3rd of October this year alone. This presents a massive 42% of sales recorded for the WHOLE of December last year (2010). In addition to this, the U.S. Mint has sold more than 34 million ounces of silver so far this year, already surpassing last year’s record sales of 34.662 million American Silver Eagles (1 oz). By the look of things, silver sales are expected to increase even further in the days and months to come, especially while the “paper gimmick” and silver market manipulation are still pretty much the order of the day. The bankers and their allies, political and otherwise, are after all trying their utmost best to keep the prices of precious metals down, especially gold and silver prices. The reason they do this, is because if they allow the prices to reflect the true value of gold and silver, then this round of the “paper gimmick” will come to an end too soon for their liking. If true worth is reflected, people will dump fiat currency (non-redeemable paper notes, paper currency, electronic currency) in droves in order to obtain real money consisting of physical gold and physical silver. People might then finally realize that in order to be truly free, they’ve got to switch to honest money, God-ordained money. It is among the best ways to break out of this debt-based currency system, where 0.01% sits in front of the fireplace while 99.99% of the world population has to toil away for slave wages!
Needless to say, the window of opportunity to buy silver, physical silver that is, at the current ridiculous low silver price levels of around $30 per troy ounce is starting to close fast. By the time the majority of people realize that the fiat paper money Ponzi scheme is coming to an end, precious metals such as gold and silver will not be available at any paper price.
