The year 2008 may stand as a record year for economic turmoil at least in the United States if not the rest of the world, and hopefully for a long time to come yet. In other years, the mintage and price of silver would have been a simple question of demand. Starting in 2008, the numbers for Silver Eagle mintage actually became a question of supply. The price of silver was $14.99 for the year, with spikes up to $20.92. Silver Eagle bullion coins came to a mintage of 20,583,000. They would have sold even higher, except that the US Mint actually had to suspend the production of Silver Eagles for a period and then issued them in rationed quantities throughout the rest of the year, in what amounted to an emergency mintage cap. Markets were in a dire panic in 2008. Historians have compared the Great Recession to the Great depression of the 1930s, and this downturn affected the world. It may be news to some that there is international demand for US precious metal coins as well, and a crash on an American stock market is felt in Asia and Europe by the next morning. For precious metal coins, shortages of supply led to instant after-market inflation, which only fed the frenzy.
