When we had last checked on the total silver sales by the US Mint earlier today, the amount given was 3,407,000 ounces, a number which we had earlier speculated would be a monthly record if sales were maintained at the current pace.

And as the number had not been updated we assumed that “either buying interest has ceased overnight (unlikely), that the mint is not updating its numbers (likely), or, worse, that the Mint has now stopped selling any form of silver for reasons unknown.” Indeed, the result was the likely one, and following a quick check today on US Mint sales confirms that sales have once again surged following the Mint’s delayed update. As of today they stood at a whopping 4,588,000, or nearly 1.2 million ounces sold in a few short days. This represents the biggest monthly total sold by the US Mint going back to 1986 when the Mint disclosed its first monthly sales record… And the month is not even over yet. In other words in just the first three weeks of January, the mint has sold more silver than in any month in its history according to its public records going back 26 years.

So the bad news is that while the bulk of Scotia Mocatta’s silver bars continue to be sold out (and just the Valcambi 1kg bar is shown as available), the good news is that the kind folks at BullionVault were good enough to advise us that their physical silver inventory is now back and is on line (and contrary to our previous notification, the firm’s physical shortage was not in Germany but in England, where its vaults are located) so our England-based readers can go ahead and purchase at will from said location.
