The proof and uncirculated 2014 National Baseball Hall of Fame Silver Dollars have officially been marked as “sold out” on the United States Mint’s website. For nearly two weeks, the Mint had been accepting orders for the coins for placement on a waiting list.
On April 9, the US Mint had posted a “waiting list” notice on the product pages for the coins. The notice indicated that orders had been received to meet the entire maximum mintage for the product offering. Collectors could still place orders for placement on a waiting list, which would be fulfilled on a first-come, first-served basis in the event of an order cancellation.
With the silver dollars now officially sold out and orders no longer accepted in any format, only the clad composition half dollars remain available. The $5 gold coins had sold out in rapid fashion and continue to command a sharp premium on the secondary market.
The most recent sales statistics (as of April 20, 2014) indicate total sales for the $5 gold coins at 32,026 proof and 17,974 uncirculated coins, accounting for the entire 50,000 maximum mintage. The figures represent a split of 64.1% proof and 35.9% uncirculated coins.
The figures for the silver dollars indicate total sales of 262,091 proof and 137,909 uncirculated coins, accounting for the entire 400,000 maximum mintage. The figures represent a split of 65.5% proof and 35.5% uncirculated coins.
For the clad half dollars, sales have reached 119,869 proof and 74,203 uncirculated coins, for a total of 194,072 across both versions. Sales to date represent a split of 61.8% proof and 38.2% uncirculated coins. The maximum mintage for the half dollars is 750,000 pieces. A special young collectors set incorporating the uncirculated version of the half dollar will be released later this year.
As an update to a previous post containing a reader report of a Baseball Hall of Fame Gold Coin missing the “W” mint mark, upon evaluation the coin was found to have the proper mint mark. The coin was not missing the mint mark.
