Now Royal Canadian Mint rationing silver coin sales

Silver demand looks to be running at particularly high levels in January as the Royal Canadian Mint follows US example and begins rationing sales of its Silver Maple Leaf coins.

"As Mineweb readers will be aware, the U.S. Mint announced that it had suspended sales of its Silver Eagle coins around a week ago following enormous early-year demand (see Over 6 million Silver Eagle bullion coins sold already this year) and would only be able to start supplying authorised dealers again, on an allocation (rationing) basis, from next week. Now a report by precious metals analyst Jason Hamlin in notes that the Royal Canadian Mint announced yesterday that it too was having to ration its sales of its popular Silver Maple Leaf coins."
