According to the United States Mint’s website, the 2013-P Great Basin National Park Five Ounce Silver Coin has sold out. This product originally went on sale less than four months ago and follows the early sell out of the White Mountain coin last month.
The 2013-P Great Basin Five Ounce Silver Coins originally went on sale July 25, 2013. Sales began at the reduced price level of $154.95 per coin, compared to initial pricing of $179.95 for the prior two releases of the year.
Opening sales came in at 8,819 units, which was an increase from the opening sales of 7,996 units for the previous Perry’s Victory design. The higher opening may have been due to the better received design and the lower pricing, although over time sales levels of the two issues have narrowed the previous gap.
As of the most recent sales report just published today, sales for the Great Basin silver coins have reached 17,774 units. This figure is below the stated maximum mintage of 25,000 units. It is also below the last reported sales amount for the previously sold out White Mountain coins at 20,536 units.
The three remaining available 2013 America the Beautiful Five Ounce Silver Uncirculated Coins have reached sales of 17,632 (Perry’s Victory), 18,674 (Fort McHenry), and 17,048 (Mount Rushmore).
As mentioned previously, it is likely that we may see additional early sell outs for this series below the stated maximum mintage levels.
2013 Mount Rushmore Quarter Three Coin Set
Earlier today, November 19, 2013 at 12:00 Noon ET, the US Mint began sales for the America the Beautiful Quarters Three Coin Set featuring the 2013 Mount Rushmore National Memorial Quarters.
Each set includes uncirculated versions of the quarter struck at the Philadelphia and Denver Mints with a proof version struck at the San Francisco Mint. The three coins are mounted on a plastic card illustrated with a view of Mount Rushmore. The back of the card includes a brief description of the site and coin with a certificate of authenticity.
The Mount Rushmore Quarter Three Coin Set is priced at $9.95. There is no stated product limit and no household ordering limit.
Today, the US Mint also released the William & Ida McKinley Presidential $1 Coin & First Spouse Medal Set, which was covered in a separate post yesterday.
After several very slow months, activity has certainly picked up at the United States Mint.
