The United States Mint Acknowledges a Silver Shortage

The US Mint Website is Crashing, Extraordinary Volume of Traffic

Because of the outrageous demand for silver, once the mint announced a pre-order opportunity for a new silver dollar (2021 Morgan Dollar), the website was barely able to keep up. They describe the issues as "website anomalies" that did not allow users to complete their transactions.

Extraordinary Volume, Continued Low Silver Price

This is further indication of the demand for physical silver, while the supposed bullion price is still under $30.00. Most students of finance know that this is artificially low, compared to the real-world demand for physical silver bullion.

Pfft, really?

$100 /oz Silver

Typically, silver dollars sell for about 20% over spot price, which means this coin should be sold for under $35.00 - but even with the outrageously expensive price tag of $85.00, they cannot mint enough of these coins to meet demand.

Considering this coin contains .858 troy oz of silver, an overwhelming number of buyers are willing paying $100.00 per troy oz silver. Yes, $100/oz silver. And we're supposed to believe it's really worth under $28/oz?

One could say it's the NUMISMATIC value that creates such a premium, but c'mon really? Is the Morgan design really that attractive?

Demand is Greater Than Supply

When people say that demand for silver is higher than supply, they're not pulling this idea out of a hat. It's not some alex-jones type conspiracy website telling them this. Sources like the United States Mint are acknowledging the silver shortage and supply/demand ratio.

When the US Mint tells you about the supply and demand of silver, listen very carefully.

Think Maybe They're Stalling For Time? Why?

I know they say it's because of the website, but isn't is quite possible that they are expecting more pre-orders then they have bullion? Are they stalling for more time to find the raw material to meet projected demand? Reading between the lines, they are already preparing buyers that not all orders will be fulfilled, even with the delayed launch date.

"While inconvenient to many, this deliberate delay will give the Mint the time necessary to obtain..."

Web management tools? Really? C'mon US MINT, come clean. This is not about a website, this is about bullion. You need more time to gather the silver bullion to mint enough coins to meet demand.

They continue "The demand for silver remains greater than the supply, the reality is such that not everyone will be able to purchase a coin."

If the US Mint needs extra time to meet bullion demands for 175,000 coins, the silver squeeze is sqeezier than we thought!

Teach Your Children Liberty from Sin

We encourage parents to teach their children principles of Godliness, beginning with the Word and an understanding who God is and what His Son has done to form a relationship with us.

No one can lay a foundation other than the one already laid, which is Jesus Christ. If anyone builds on this foundation using gold, silver, precious stones, wood, hay, or straw, his workmanship will be evident, because the Day will bring it to light. It will be revealed with fire, and the fire will prove the quality of each man’s work. 1 Corinthians 3:11-13

Teach Your children Liberty from Tyranny

Second to this is the principle of self-determination and freedom, lest we loose the ability to teach our children the first principle in future generations. Our children read the Tuttle Twin books, specifically to learn libertarian principles, which most people learn later in life. These books are useful for our family, and yours, to teach children concepts that seem complicated, but are made simple in these books. I am an affiliate for Libertas Publishing, your purchase will help our family grow financially.

But I like artificially low priced silver when I'm buying.
Selling, if I sell. Will be a different matter.

As they said at the Perth Mint, "We're out of Silver Mate."

That's what we're all wondering!

The theory is that the silver market is being manipulated by (unbacked) paper silver trades, people buy them thinking there are vaults filled with silver bullion that they can take physical possession of. But it's just paper. Real world silver bullion is already trading 2x the supposed silver price. When investors can make more money selling physical bullion, the paper silver holders will demand their physical bullion then... ut oh. The vaults are empty!

I got one of these as a gift for my son recently, just to get started on precious metals. First time in my life I buy physical gold.
