I had to share this after I had done some silver hunting myself. In Australia we seem to have a similar problem to the US but to a lesser extent. I found it hard to find some but got there in the end. Silver has now dropped from $21.70 to $20.46 AUD in the week 21/08/15-27/08/15. This shows manipulation again of the market. If silver supply is low, price should be high and vice-versa. The price is kept low for a reason.
