After nine days, the Mint began selling certain of its silver issues again after they had been taken off sale on Sept. 26 due to the dramatic plunge in the price of the precious metal.
The silver proof sets of 2010 and 2011 and the proof silver quarter sets of 2010 and 2011 reappeared on the Mint’s website Oct. 5 at the same prices being charged when sales were suspended.
The 2010 silver proof set is priced at $64.95 while the 2011 set is $67.95. The 2010 silver quarter set is $39.95 and the 2011 silver quarter set is $41.95.

Sales remain suspended for the uncirculated and proof silver Eagles and the 5-ounce silver collector coins.
Such a long sales pause occurred because “the marketing people want to see where the market is going to go,” explained Tom Jurkowsky, Mint public affairs director.
He said they were just about ready to settle on prices for the coins that are still off sale and submit a notice to the Federal Register, which is required by law. That was expected to take another two or three days.
