The American Silver Eagle is one of the most beautiful and sought after silver bullion coins. We are long term fans here at https://www.preciousmetalsinvesting.com. Ever wondered how they are made? Here’s a behind the scenes look from the US Mint at West Point. Besides the fascinating look at how the coins are made one of the interesting points was the graph that showed the tremendous growth in production from 1986 when the silver eagle production was first started. Even with this tremendous growth in production the Mint is hard pressed to meet the tremendous demand as more people come to realize the potential of investing in silver. As the video pointed out there are about 12 vendors the mint deals with and if you have visited some of their sites lately you will often see the sold out sign.
