U.S. Mint Silver Coins Run Out as Buying at 5-Year High

Consistent with this headline, the green "monster boxes" of 500? silver American Eagle coins were selling very briskly at last week's FUN coin show in Orlando, FL.  Some folks walked out wheeling several of the monster boxes.  I think they are $18,000+/box.  Presumably, the American Eagle isn't the only silver/gold coin experiencing a spike in interest during these times of economic uncertainty.
