The United States Mint will resume sales of the 2015 American Silver Eagle bullion coin on July 27, according to Reuters. The coin sold nearly three million units on Jan. 12, the day of its release, a number that grew to 21,786,000 by the time sales were suspended on July 7. The nearly three-week hiatus, instated to allow the West Point Mint to catch up on production, has been longer than expected.
The 2015 American Silver Eagle bullion coin has been hugely popular, due in part to a renewed interest in silver as gold prices flounder. The coin can be bought by authorized purchasers at a price determined by silver’s current value as listed by the London Bullion Market Association.
