    I take all news from the mint as a scam of some sort.

    They blame this on silver blank shortages but still fulfill countless of commemorative coins that celebrate anything under the sun. :rolleyes:

    Somewhere mixed in to that memo I received from the Mint is my new motto, 'follow the money'. Something smells fishy.

    it's still on the mint schedule for fall of 2022..... you'd think they would take it down in a timely manner, I mean the news release was yesterday, but still..... I don't think the idea they had trouble getting the blanks came as a surprise to them.

    Maybe they should kill the colorized purple heart coin and make the morgan instead..... they got like 5 commem dollars and medals this year they could seriously cancel something else if they wanted to, but they want the colorized gimmicks I guess, just like the 6 christmas ornaments....hahaha

    I don't know why they would continue them anyway. Wasn't commemorating the 100 year anniversary enough?

    "This calculated pause is directly related to the global pandemic’s impact upon the availability of silver blanks from the Mint’s suppliers. The suspension will give the Mint time to evaluate the best way to allocate our limited supply of silver to ensure the best customer experience we can."

    Why does the term "mealy-mouthed" come to mind?

    My guess is that they're just "exhausted" from all their "hard work" and want to take some time off.

    The "global pandemic" has come in very handy for all sorts of people who want to enjoy a "calculated pause."

    They are having a difficult time trying to design, fabricate and promote the next artificial scarcity.

    By law they HAVE to make the commemoratives. They are NOT required to make the Morgan and Peace dollars. So if there is a risk of not being able to supply the planchets for everything, it's the Morgan and Peace that get cut.

    Vertigo Did someone say bust?

    Wonders what this announcement will do to silver prices? Maybe they go higher now that the US mint a admits there's supply chain shortages...

    It'll have absolutely no impact on silver prices
