The U.S. Mint sold out of 2013 American Eagle silver coins at a time when investors bought the most metal in five years through the biggest exchange-traded product.

The mint's sales are "temporarily" suspended and will resume on or about the week of Jan. 28 when inventory is replenished, it said yesterday in an e-mailed statement.


The U.S. Mint sold 6.01 million ounces of American Eagle silver coins so far this month. That's the most since the 6.11 million ounces sold in January last year, its website shows. December's total was 1.64 million ounces.
