CHART: There Are More Silver Eagles Held By Investors Than Silver Inventories At The SLV ETF Or The COMEX
Smart silver investors now hold more Silver Eagles than the total inventories at the iShares SLV ETF or the COMEX. For the past 36 years, since 1986, investors have been buying every Silver Eagle issued by the U.S. Mint. With over a half-billion Silver Eagles now held by private investors, less than 1% of the population owns “Official Real Silver Money.” That’s correct; with so few Official Silver Coins held by private investors, what happens when more Americans realize that Treasuries, Bonds, and Dollars they own will become increasingly worthless in the future?? When Americans try to access physical silver, there just won’t be all that much to go around.
