Silver Eagles Owner Turns “Black Swan” Event Into Huge Silver Bonus

August 18th, 2022 Comments

We’ve never seen anything like it...

A clever Money Metals customer called us this week with a pretty unusual request.

This “Eagle-eyed” precious metals investor noticed something kinda weird about current trends in silver prices... one of those black swan events that rarely lasts for very long –

He noticed that the price we’ll pay to buy back Silver Eagles is WAY higher than the price per ounce we charge on rounds, bars, and Vault Silver... a lot higher.

And he coolly informed us that he wished to sell his stash of Silver Eagles to us at $9 over spot and use the proceeds to fund a significantly larger quantity of Buffalo Rounds (same size, purity, and silver content).

And this savvy investor made out like a bandit... locking in a net gain of about 100 oz.!

Let me illustrate this opportunity with side-by-side screenshots from –

Replace Your Silver Eagles with Buffalo Rounds and Get a Huge Silver Bonus!

Silver Eagle vs Silver Buffalo Rounds


  • Sell 500 Silver Eagles ($28.96 ea.) to us for $14,475.00
  • Buy 594 Buffalo Silver Rounds ($24.37 ea.) for $14,457.96 (spot prices update every minute)

You get back 94 more ounces than you sold, plus we send you a check for the difference!

That’s a silver bonus of nearly 20% more silver simply by swapping government-issue Eagles for privately minted rounds!

To what do we owe this bizarre price spread that’s big enough to drive an armored truck through? It’s an unusual price divergence created by two factors you can always count on:

  1. The law of supply and demand
  2. The incompetence of government bureaucrats

It seems that officials at the U.S. Mint are utterly incapable of making enough of what was once the most popular legal tender silver coin to keep up with demand.

No other mints – public or private – seem to be having such severe problems.

In an environment where Americans are scrambling to acquire real assets to hedge against inflation, the U.S. Mint is barely producing half as many Silver Eagles as it has in the past. The result is that retail buy premiums on Silver Eagles have hit an eye-watering all-time high of nearly $14 an ounce!

Meanwhile, the premium on rounds like the Silver Buffalo (privately minted by American entrepreneurs) is $5 an ounce or less. And premiums on silver bars go even lower – some are even under $3 an ounce.

And for securely stored Vault Silver through Money Metals, you’re looking at premiums of under $1.50 an ounce... a 90 percent discount off the current premium for Silver Eagles!

I don’t want to over-explain this, but you can read more about the ridiculous Silver Eagle premium situation here if you wish. Quite frankly, it’s insane.

How to Cash In on the Silver Eagle Price Bubble Before It Pops…

The important thing is that you at least consider cashing in on this Silver Eagle price bubble before it pops... and walk away with 20 percent more ounces. Here’s all you need to do:

  • Go to the appropriate Silver Eagles page and use the ‘Click Here To Sell To Us’ button right below the image of the coin. Enter the quantity you wish to sell and immediately see the price we’ll pay.

  • Then choose rounds or bars and enter a larger number of ounces – about 20 percent larger. (You can fine-tune this in the shopping cart by adding or subtracting a few units.)

You’ll also find everything you need to know about shipping your Silver Eagles to us. And if your coins are already stored at Money Metals Depository, the process is even simpler.

If you don’t want to arrange your exchange transaction online, just call us at 1-800-800-1865, and one of our precious metals specialists will take care of everything for you.

They can also help if you prefer to get the absolute largest silver bonus possible by putting your proceeds into Vault Silver... you’ll get about 33 percent more ounces by converting your Eagles to securely stored Vault Silver.

Act now to take advantage of the situation and dramatically increase your silver stash. Turn government incompetence into your own financial gain!

P.S. One of our precious metals specialists (1-800-800-1865) shot me this email yesterday:

Stefan! Just did a trade for a Money Metals client. He sold 467 Silver Eagles and purchased 582 oz worth of Silver bars and rounds. A net gain of 115 oz. Incredible!

A few minutes later I received this:

I did the same thing this morning for a Money Metals Depository client. He sold 300 ASEs to us and bought 350 Buffs – and we’ll also be sending him a balance payment.

Those are actual comments on actual transactions yesterday from our staff.

On every product page at, you will see a "Sell to Us Price." Click the blue button and it will enable you to sell to us online and you can purchase something at a lower premium with the proceeds in the same online transaction... or simply have us make a payment to you.

You would then need to ship the coins to us – or authorize their release from your depository account. If you prefer, this kind of transaction can also be arranged over the phone by calling 1-800-800-1865.
