The United States Mint has received orders to account for the entire maximum authorized mintage of the 2014 National Baseball Hall of Fame Silver Dollars. This marks a quick sell out for the “curved coins” featuring a depiction of a glove and baseball, which went on sale less than two weeks ago.
Around 4:00 PM today, the US Mint posted a “waiting list notice” on the product pages for the proof and uncirculated silver dollars. The notice indicates that orders have been received to meet the maximum limit for the coins. Collectors may still place orders for placement on a waiting list which will be fulfilled on a first-come, first-served basis in the event of an order cancellation.
The sell out of the silver dollars, follows the earlier sell out of the proof and uncirculated $5 gold coins. Now only the clad half dollars remain available for sale.
Sales figures provided at the start of the week indicated a fast approaching sell out for the silver dollars. As of April 7, sales had reached 238,636 proofs and 127,704 uncirculated coins for a total of 366,340 from the 400,000 maximum authorized mintage.
This morning, updated figures were provided showing that as of April 9, sales had risen to 257,183 proofs and 133,696 uncirculated coins for a total of 390,879. Presumably, during the course of the day day orders were received for the final 9,121 coins remaining within the maximum authorized mintage.
The 2014 National Baseball Hall of Fame Silver Dollar seems to have achieved the fastest sell out for any modern commemorative silver dollar, having been available for sale from March 27 to April 9, 2014, or 13 days.
The popular 2001 American Buffalo Silver Dollar had reached a sell out of the 500,000 maximum mintage from the period of June 7 to June 21, 2001, or 14 days.
