However, the first year the US Mint ever produced the coin in this uncirculated version was 2006. It ran for three years before the Mint was forced to cancel the coins production for the year 2009. Stating unprecedented demand for the bullion pieces (which it is required to strike by law to meet demand), the Mint could not procure enough blanks to also strike these uncirculated Eagles.

As these coins were also cancelled in 2010, a return in 2011would mean their first appearance in several years.

Historic Mintage on Silver Eagles

Since their introduction in 2006, the Silver Uncirculated Eagles have seen the following mintages:

The Mint cancelled sales of the 2009 & 2010 American Eagle Silver Uncirculated Coins due to unprecedented demand for the bullion version of the coin.
