The Sherman Silver Purchase Act was passed on July 14th, 1890 this repealed the provisions of the Bland-Allison Act. Even though the Treasury now had to purchase $4,500,000 of silver per month it didn't mean the production of silver dollars went up in fact they fell between 1891 and 1892. The Treasury had to purchase the silver, but didn't have to coin it right away plus the fact that there were huge stocks of unciruclated silver dollars at the Treasury is the reason for the low production after the Sherman Act was passed.
