Gold and silver American Eagle bullion coins might have been rationed during the year, but as 2010 was concluding the Mint still had them in inventory and said it would continue to sell them until its inventory of 2010-coins are depleted.
If any are leftover when 2011 arrives, the 2010 coins “will be sold on a ratio basis” when authorized purchasers order 2011 Eagles.
Orders for 2011 coins will be accepted from authorized purchasers starting Jan. 3, 2011, according to its standard allocation process.
The bullion coins have no mintmark and are produced for bullion investors and are sold only through the Mint’s network of authorized purchasers.
