Late yesterday, the 2013 Fort McHenry National Memorial Five Ounce Silver Uncirculated Coin was indicated as sold out on the United States Mint’s website. Four out of the five designs issued for the series this year have now sold out.
The White Mountain National Park design had sold out on October 9 after less than five months of availability. This was followed by the sell out of the Great Basin National Park design on November 19, after less than four months of availability. Last week the Perry’s Victory & International Peace Memorial design sold out on November 25, after around six months of availability.
The latest sell out for the Fort McHenry National Memorial design takes place after a little more than three months of availability. The coins originally went on sale August 29, 2013 at the price of $154.95. Once again, the US Mint did not produce the coins to the full extent of the stated maximum mintage of 25,000 pieces.
The last reported sales figures for the four sold out designs and one remaining design are shown below. These numbers are from the most recent sales report just published today.
|2013-P White Mountain National Park||20,534||sold out|
|2013-P Perry’s Victory & Intl Peace Memorial||17,719||sold out|
|2013-P Great Basin National Park||17,809||sold out|
|2013-P Fort McHenry National Monument||19,634||sold out|
|2013-P Mount Rushmore National Memorial||21,135||available|
As can be seen, the Fort McHenry design has last reported sales above the levels of the Perry’s Vicotry and Great Basin designs, but below the level of the White Mountain design.
The still available Mount Rushmore design has current sales already above the levels of the four sold out designs. The US Mint seems to have based production on higher sales expectations, perhaps even striking the entire 25,000 maximum mintage. Sales for the design continue to be brisk, with 1,686 units sold in the last weekly period.
