Increased demand for silver at bargain prices has led the U.S. Mint to suspend sales on the Silver American Eagle 1 oz. coin for at least two weeks. June Silver Eagle sales were around 4.8 million ounces more than double the amount sold in May according to the Mint. Through June of 2015, the Mint claims it sold more than 23 million Silver Eagles.
The incredible opportunity to purchase silver for more than $8.00 less an ounce than it costs the average mine to produce it cannot last. Global demand continues outpacing global mining production as investors cash in on bargain prices.

Germany’s Chancellor Angela Merkel is facing growing opposition within her own conservative ranks as members voiced opposition to the idea of more aid for Greece.
Andreas Scheuer, general secretary of the Bavarian wing of Ms Merkel’s conservatives, was more vocal. “Greece has said No and as far as we are concerned that means no to negotiations and to a further aid package,” he told Germany’s ‘Bild’ newspaper.
Other leading conservatives agreed with the finance minister Wolfgang Schäuble, who has said that the “honest and consequent approach” would be for Greece to leave the Eurozone.
