According to the US Mint’s website, the 2011-P Gettysburg National Military Park Five Ounce Silver Uncirculated Coin has sold out. This was one of the products included in the Mint’s “Last Chance” section with sales scheduled to conclude on December 31. The earlier sell out indicates that all remaining inventory has been sold ahead of the scheduled date.
The Gettysburg Five Ounce Silver Uncirculated Coins originally went on sale at the US Mint on September 22, 2011. For the start of sales, the price was $279.95 per coin. In line with swings in the market price of silver, the price was later reduced to $229.95, reduced further to $204.95, but then increased to $229.95.
The stated maximum authorized mintage for the coin was 35,000. According to the latest numismatic sales report, orders had been placed for 24,572 coins, indicating that the US Mint did not produce the coins to the full extent of the maximum authorized mintage.
The four other designs for the 2011-P America the Beautiful Five Ounce Silver Uncirculated Coins still remain available for sale. These feature Glacier National Park, Olympic National Park, Vicksburg National Military Park, and Chickasaw National Recreation Area. Sales are scheduled to conclude on December 31, 2012 at 12:00 Noon ET. However, based on the sell out of the Gettysburg design, earlier sell outs might be possible.
2012-S Acadia National Park Quarter 100-Coin Bags
Separately, the 100-coin bags of “S” mint marked circulating quality 2012 Acadia National Park Quarters have also sold out. This follows the sell outs for the San Francisco 100-coin bags for Hawaii and Chaco Culture.
As covered in this previous post, the product pages state that these products were intended to remain available for one year from the release date, although the sell out occurs well ahead of this time. The US Mint has indicated that they have already switched over to production of 2013 production for the “S” mint marked quarters.
Based on the three sell outs already, sell outs may be possible for the remaining available options for the product line. At this time, the San Francisco 100-coin bags for El Yunque National Forest and Denali National Park and Preserve still remain available. The San Francisco 40-coin rolls for all five designs also still remain available.
