The U.S. Mint will resume sales of its popular 2015 American Eagle silver bullion coins on Monday on an allocated basis, it said in a statement on Friday, almost two weeks after running out of stock due to significant demand.

The mint was forced to halt sales to U.S. wholesalers on July 7—the second such stoppage in the past nine months—while its facility in West Point, New York, rebuilt inventory.

It said at the time the halt would likely last about two weeks.
