EDITOR NOTE: The Royal Canadian Mint has halted the production of its fractional “Maple Leaf'' coins due to a shortage in gold supply. And although its silver coin production remains operational, a shortage in physical silver has prompted the Mint to raise premiums on its non-CUSIP inventory to make way for the CUSIP tracked Maple Leaf. Non-CUSIP coin demand continues to rise amid a massive inventory depletion. As a result, the surge in non-CUSIP prices has caused a significant divergence between physical metals and their paper derivative counterparts. Non-CUSIP gold and silver coins are disappearing fast as premiums continue to rise. This means that now is the most opportune time to buy non-CUSIP gold and silver before inventories are completely sold out. Review the letter from the RCM below.
