2013-P Mount Rushmore Five Ounce Silver Uncirculated Coin

The United States Mint started accepting orders for the 2013-P Mount Rushmore National Memorial Five Ounce Silver Uncirculated Coin on November 7, 2013 at 12:00 Noon ET. This represents the twentieth release within the numismatic series of large sized silver coins.

Mount Rushmore Five Ounce Silver Coin

The reverse design by Joseph Menna was inspired by photos of men adding the final details to Thomas Jefferson’s face and offers a unique and educational perspective about how Mount Rushmore was created. The obverse design features the 1932 portrait of George Washington designed by John Flanagan.

This represents the numismatic version of the coin, which contains the “P” mint mark on the obverse and has an uncirculated finish created through a vapor blasting technique. The bullion version of the coin, which has no mint mark and a brilliant finish, has already been released and reached sales of 6,000 units as of November 4.

The Mount Rushmore Five Ounce Silver Uncirculated Coin is struck in 99.9% silver with a weight of 5.000 troy ounces and diameter of 3.000 inches. The edge of the coin contains incused lettering indicating the precious metal weight and fineness.

The sales price for the coin is $154.95 and a mintage limit of 25,000 pieces has been established. However, it may be possible that total production will be less than this amount.

The previous three releases of the series are still currently available from the US Mint. The coins featuring Perry’s Victory & International Peace Memorial, Great Basin National Park, and Fort McHenry National Monument have recently reported sales falling into the tight range of 17,069, 17,173, and 17,527 units, respectively.

The first release of the series for this year featuring White Mountain National Park sold out on October 9 at last reported sales of 20,538 units.

    Ordered my pair @ 12:20pm. Speedy and quick, maybe there is low demand for this coin? Glad all of the 2013-P pucks are now in the books. #4221xxxx.

    I decided to try the subscription route with this one. No confirmation yet. Plan to cancel afterwards. Wanted to try the process and see what it is like.

  3. Samuel says

    Ray, thats the return policy, used to be 7 days, now 30 days, give people more room to manipulate the mintage.

  4. samuel says

    Micro, on the “thank for your order….:” page after u placed the order, at the bottom, there is a return policy section, click the link, then u will see it. but i doubt u alreay passed that page. actually it is also my first time check the retun policy on that page.

    In and out in less than two minutes using Quick Checkout and CC on file. The Mint’s e-commerce system does seem a little more steam-lined than before. I am curious as to what amout of traffic will implement the “waiting room.”

    I did find that language that Samuel had referenced. Bolded letters within the Mint’s “Shipping and Returns” link. This didn’t get nearly the fanfare that the change to the 7-day policy did, and I’m wondering if they might throw in a seperate caveat for PM-based products. Still, you do have to ask yourself: “Unless we see a huge swing in PM’s, who’s going to return what is, otherwise, a high quality coin within a limited mintage – in order to save a couple $$ and possibly receive a lesser quality coin?” Helluva Risk, but especially w/ some of the Mint’s products.

    I’m probably going to hold off on getting this one until December, and buy it along with the new Teddy Roosevelt set. I had almost given up hope for the TR set and was glad to hear about it yesterday.

  8. MarkInFlorida says

    FMT if you subscribed too close to this issuance then your subscription won’t start until the next one! I learned that a while back.

    I love these pucks! Hard to believe it was 4 years ago we were struggling to get our orders in for the the first ones from the 11 APs!

  9. Brian says

    I’m surprised this thread didn’t get more activity. This was definitely the most polarizing of the ATB designs this year….some loved it, some hated it.

    If nothing else though it is a unique design and is a park that everyone has heard of. If any of the 5 oz. coins will be a winner this year, I think it is most likely to be this one.

  10. Jus-a-coin-luvr says

    Ordered mine today too along with a roll of the “S” quarters for Rushmore. I have no logic to that practice other than I like to do it. 🙂

  11. Louis says

    @Jus- Maybe the logic is saving on shipping. I did the same thing. Last year I was getting a roll and a bag of “S” quarters, but this year I decided to just get the roll as they do not seem to be doing as well.

  12. Jus-a-coin-luvr says

    That “is” part of it Louis…saving some shipping. It is the collecting a roll of the associated “S” quarters to go with the 5oz ABT that I seem to have no rational reason for doing…

  13. Ikaika says

    Purchased the 5 oz ATB today. Glad it is over for the 2013 series. No “S” quarters for me. Still putting in the extra hours to pay for the damage the RP buffalo and Co did to my pocket this year 🙂

  14. fmtransmitter says

    I received an email from the Mint a month prior expecting my card to get dinged and also called them to verify my card info.

  15. Dustyroads says

    I’m thinking along the same lines as Brian! I don’t think anyone’s going to go wrong with this 5oz.

    Jus~It’s OK to admit that you like coins with the S mint mark. My first exposure to coin collecting as a child was looking for the S.

  16. fmtransmitter says

    Don’t listen to the “S” Mint mark haters..lol One of my favorites is my Reverse S Walking Liberty half…:)~

  17. Dustyroads says

    Walking Liberty’s are excellent choices for collecting, I wish they weren’t so pricey!

  18. silverhawk357 says

    ASE proof is now off the mint bulk purchase order form. Still on the website, but ordering is closing soon.

  19. Jerry Diekmann says

    I think it would have been nice if this year the Mint had struck “W” quarters to go with the 75th anniversary of West Point. Last year the Mint first struck “S” quarters to go along with the 75th anniversary of the current SF mint. Issuing “W”quarters this year would seem to be more logical, but I have never seen much logic in anything the Mint does, so it’s par for the course. No matter how long the “S” quarters are minted, the first two years will be missing them, which again, seems illogical. Also, why aren’t the “S” quarters included in the annual sets? What happened to the logic?

  20. vaughnster says

    I bought one of the Rushmore 5 oz. pucks at noon as well as some other misc. rolls and sets I’ve been putting off. I don’t want to have any surprises with unexpected sellouts. I certainly will get my money’s worth on the $4.95 shipping, that will be upgraded to second day air. I think the Roosevelt C&C set will round out my year. Just need the Rushmore bullion and my wallet can take a little break 🙂

  21. simon says

    Ray : logic and the us mint in the same sentence?


    May not be left-brain logic but most definitely right-brain history, culture, art, technology and the US Mint in the very same sentence ! 🙂

  22. Dustyroads says

    I can only assume that getting a job done at the US Mint is easier said than done. Way too much red tape gets in the way!

  23. fmtransmitter says

    5 oz ATB in stock and reserved. Funny how it works. They make a fake line for a penny and then cancel it out and create a new line for the subscription. Seems rather LINUX x86-based technology.

  24. fmtransmitter says

    Just hoping I didn’t make a mistake not getting in on Twitter IPO at $46 a share. There’s a few new billionaires in the World tonight!

  25. Jeff says

    Let me see my off topicJFK coin question has been omitted however you elect to post stock market quotes on the post go figure.

    fm…yeah, but they got in at the ipo price of $26

    Samuel says:

    u will see twtr at 20s in the near future.

    Managing OT in a blog will always be difficult and IMO not that necessary. People here get comfortable with each other, occasionally pop-out an OT thought and that is OK with me. We don’t have any forum here, want to talk with each other and this is about the only way to do it.

  27. jj says

    i’m with CaptainOverkill…will get the 5 oz rushmore with the roosevelt set next month. i sure hope they put a gold coin in that set, would be sweet. wonder when they will announce its contents?

  28. VABEACHBUM says

    So… just checked my Mint user account, and learned that my ATB-P order placed at 12:20 PM yesterday is confirmed shipped using that goofy FEX EX / USPS hybrid service. Tentative delivery of 11/14.

    Apparently these pucks are racked and stacked in Indiana, just waiting for the ship authorizations. Which begs the questions – how many do they have in the warehouse, and does this represent the total population?? Recognizing that 2014 is 7 weeks away, I can see the Mint turning their focus towards next year’s production requirements, rather than striking more 2013 ATBs through the end of the year.

    Anyone else have order updates??

  29. Jack in N.E says

    VABB… My 5oz.ATB ordered just after sales started now has been shipped only 1 ordered though.

  30. says

    Ordered one 5 oz ATB Mt. Rushmore but also ordered two sets of the rolls P, D and S. on the first day. Status of my order “reserved”. Guess it is extra work and takes longer if you add more to one order! Little less of the $300 and so will take longer to get to me! Heck I was short $5 for two day shipping once before! Breaks of ordering! Have a nice VETERANS DAY!

  31. David says

    I ordered my 2 Mount Rushmore ATB on the 7th at 2.00 pm. The operator at the Mint stated there had been a lot of calls about the 5 oz coin and she slipped up and said wow and there are only about 6800 left. First day sales must have been swift !!! I think it being Mount Rushmore it will go more quickly.
