Jaime Hernandez: The U.S. Mint started taking orders for the 2011 Uncirculated Silver Eagles from its Bullion Authorized Distributors on January 03, 2011.
At the time of initial sales, 2010 Uncirculated Silver Eagles still remained in the Mint's inventory. Therefore, 2010 Uncirculated Silver Eagles were also still being sold to Mint Distributors in 2011. Additionally, the Mint Distributors had to order one 2010 Silver Eagle for every four 2011 Silver Eagles they ordered.
