5. Silver sellout
The Royal Canadian Mint has sold
all of its 1 million Bald Eagle .9999 fine silver bullion coins, according
to a Dec. 16 release.
The coin is part of the RCM's
Canadian Birds of Prey bullion series.
Considering the U.S. Mint's record-breaking
silver sales in 2014, it would seem the Canadian sellout would
be a sign of a similarly historic trend. However, the RCM reported
in a Nov. 26 report that, through the first three quarters of
2014, sales of its Silver Maple Leafs were down 1 percent from the
same period in 2013 (20.7 million vs. 20.9 million).
