4 to 6-week delays are now commonplace throughout our industry. It is understandable that people who pay upfront for their gold and silver want the goods in their hands as soon as possible. We want to thank those of you who have placed orders in the last week or so. We have always delivered on our commitments (unlike other dealers that have refunded their orders vs. honoring them). As you have heard from us and seen, supplies are tight and premiums are high. Shipping delays are increasing. That is just a fact of life now. You can chalk it up to prices that are so attractive, in spite of the rising premiums and delays, that business is the strongest we have ever seen it. The mints can’t produce new coins as fast as they are flying out the door.
