Silver: worth a guess?

How about a little contest?

Last year the Mint sold 39,868,500 silver American Eagle bullion coins. It was a record year.

How many silver American Eagle bullion coins do you think the Mint will sell in 2012?

Will it be 40 million, 45 million, or higher?

Or do you expect a retreat to 35 million or fewer?

Share your thoughts with me.

You can post your comments here or you can email me at david.harper@fwmedia.com.

I will share the responses I receive in the pages of Numismatic News.

There is no prize for this except for earning bragging rights and the respect that goes with being right.

So how about it? How many?
