According to the public affairs person at the U.S. Mint, the rumor that Silver Eagle production was halted due to lack of demand, is not true. I have been receiving lots of emails on this issue, so I decided to pick up the phone and call Michael White, public affairs person at the U.S. Mint.
I have spoken to Mr. White several times over the past five years on different issues. So, instead of going by secondary channels and the blog-sphere rumor-mill, I thought it best to get it directly from the source itself.
I called up Mr. White and he answered the phone directly. Normally, I would get his secretary or answering service. However, he picked up right away and I told him who I was and asked him if the rumor was true that the U.S. Mint stopped production of Silver Eagles.
Mr. White told me that it was not true as they continue to produce and sell Silver Eagles. I asked Mr. White if he could provide a full statement, and he said that only thing he would tell me is that they are CONTINUING TO PRODUCE and SELL SILVER EAGLES and the rumor was not true.
I really don’t care about this issue all that much, but feel the best thing to do is to always get to the ROOT OF THE PROBLEM. Most people tend to get their answers lower down the chain or from superficial sources.
It really doesn’t matter if Silver Eagle sales are slower for the short term. As I explained in my article, The Breakdown Of The U.S. & Global Markets Explained: What Most Analysts Miss, we are serious trouble. And this has to do with energy. Without energy, the world stands still.
Moreover, the idea that investors should put 5 or 10% of the wealth in gold and the remainder in Stocks, Bonds and Real Estate is pure INSANITY. Don’t take my word for it…. just stick around for the next five years and find out for yourselves.
Unfortunately, economists and most precious metal analysts don’t seem to understand this basic principle. Which is why I am currently writing another important article titled, UNLOCKING GOLD’s TRUE VALUE: The Economic Code – Finally Revealed.
