It was the final year in a stretch of three releases that saw demand for Silver Eagles stick tightly in a range that averaged 8.6 million coins per year.
As the Silver Eagles saw modest demand, the price of silver saw significant gains during 2005. The price of silver averaged $6.67 per ounce the year before and spiked above $8 per ounce on several occasions. In 2005, however, silver averaged $7.32 per ounce and peaked above $9 at $9.22 per ounce during the year before closing the year at $8.83 per ounce, which was significantly higher than the $6.39-per-ounce price it opened the year at.
