from SRS Rocco:
Sales of 2014 Silver Eagles were restricted in January due to a limited supply of available silver blanks. Silver Eagle sales during January reached 4,755,000 oz, compared to 7,498,000 oz in January, 2013.
This year’s 2014 American Silver Eagles debuted on Jan. 13, or about a month after the 2013 American Silver Eagles sold out on Dec. 10. United States Mint distributors could not order as many as they wanted, as sales were rationed. The U.S. Mint allocated how many it sold during the first week to fewer than 3.6 million, and then reduced the amount to less than 600,000 for the second week so it could “begin the process of slowly building weekly inventories.” The final week of Silver Eagle sales reached 741,000.
