9999 purity, the finest in the world. Whereas the American Eagle only states "Fine Silver" on their coins; Canada guarantees.
The Silver market is completely dislocated; i. Something has to break and it will be the bank paper market where they trade an entire year's worth of mining for the ENTIRE world in just one day. Those of us who have been active in these markets know/knew that the physical market will end up exposing the manipulation that's been going on for decades by the banks and their paper market; i. They get to sell more silver that exists in the world in one day without ever owning it; the "paper" market. The physical market is finally starting to expose this hard core situation.
I don't know, but I have been owning this crap too long to know that what's going on is completely different than anything I've seen in decades and I'm 61 yo. Example; any and all American Eagles I currently own have edge burnishing; ALL OF THEM.
I never find this with my Maples. I wouldn't think this would be an issue because burnishing is a regular issue with silver itself, but I can only guess the more "impure" it is the more susceptible it is to burnishing. It definitely made an impression though. The item "2017 10 oz. 9999 purity coin" is in sale since Monday, April 27, 2020.This item is in the category "Coins & Paper Money\Bullion\Silver\Coins".
