2015 Guy Harvey The Old Man and the Sea 10 oz 999 silver bar

Introducing the 2015 Guy Harvey "The Old Man and the Sea" 10 oz silver bar.

Famed marine artist and photographer Guy Harvey© has brought his artwork to a new medium - silver! Harvey was working on his PhD in marine biology when his one-man exhibition of sketches based on "The Old Man and the Sea" propelled him to international attention in 1985.

Captivated by Hemingway's timeless story, the Jamaican native returns to the subject with this scene of the old man Santiago battling the blue marlin. The front of this .999 fine silver bar depicts Santiago standing in his rowboat as the majestic blue marlin catapults into the air near him. The back features another Guy Harvey© design, of an antique Spanish map of Florida.

Both sides contain the Guy Harvey© logo, while the front includes the title "The Old Man and The Sea" and the weight and purity of 10 oz .999 fine silver.

This is a silver bar like no other, authorized by Guy Harvey© himself. Bring home this treasure for yourself, a Hemingway fan, or a lover of marine artwork. The Guy Harvey© "The Old Man and The Sea" 10 oz silver bar is sure to stand out!

As Silver Prices Fall, U.S. Mint’s Silver Bullion Coins Sell Out

Investors still like silver—so much so that the U.S. Mint sold out of its American Eagle Silver Bullion Coins.

The Mint announced the temporary sellout on Tuesday. It said that the U.S. Mint facility at West Point, N.Y., continues to produce the coins and resumption of sales is expected in about two weeks.

The shortages comes at a time when silver futures prices SIU5, +1.49% are falling.On Tuesday, they sank 5% to $14.969 an ounce, the lowest settlement for a most-active contract since 2009. They recovered a bit on Wednesday, though year to date prices have lost more than 3%.

“Silver demand has really come back in the last two weeks, on the break below $16 per ounce,” Adrian Ash, head of research at BullionVault, told MarketWatch.

BullionVault’s Silver Investor Index released Tuesday rose to 56.7 in June from below 50 in May, as the number of private investors buying silver climbed to its highest level in 9 months, while the number of sellers fell to its lowest level in 3 years. The index shows the balance of net buyers over net sellers.

In a note Wednesday, Capital Economics’s Julian Jessop, pointed out that silver has been a “notable casualty of the selloff in commodity markets in the last few days.”

That usually happens when prices of other metals, especially gold but also industrials, are falling, he said. But “assuming metals in general recovery over the remainder of the year, as we expect, silver could now be set to shine.”
