2014-P Everglades National Park Five Ounce Silver Uncirculated Coin

Today, November 6, 2014 at 12:00 Noon ET, the United States Mint began accepting orders for the Everglades National Park Five Ounce Silver Uncirculated Coins. This represents the twenty-fifth overall release within the numismatic series of large sized silver coins.

Everglades ATB Silver Coin

The reverse of the coin, which was designed by Joel Iskowitz and engraved by Joseph Menna, features a scene of an anhinga with outstretched wings on a willow tree with a roseate spoonbill visible in the mid-ground. The inscriptions read “Everglades”, “Florida”, “2014”, and “E Pluribus Unum”.

As with all previous releases within the series, the obverse features the 1932 portrait of George Washington designed by John Flanagan with inscriptions “United States of America”, “Liberty”, “In God We Trust”, and “Quarter Dollar”. The coin carries the “P” mint mark to represent the West Point Mint.

Each coin is struck in 99.9% silver with a weight of 5.000 troy ounces. The precious metal purity and weight are included as incused edge lettering. The diameter of each coin is 3.000 inches and the thickness is 0.165 inch. These numismatic coins carry uncirculated finish created through a vapor blasting technique.

The United States Mint has established a mintage limit of 30,000 for this release. The same limit has been used for the prior three releases of the series. However, a lower limit of 25,000 had been established for the first release of the year featuring Great Smoky Mountains National Park.

Pricing for the coin is $154.95 plus applicable shipping and handling. This is the same price level used for the previous releases of the series for this year. However, the prior four coins had been eligible for a discounted price of $139.45 if ordered through the US Mint’s online subscription program. Following the launch of the Mint’s new website, the subscription discounts are no longer offered.

Silver Numismatic Product Price Decrease Possible?

Over the past three months, the market price of silver has declined from above $20 per ounce to its current level around $15.40 per ounce. The extent of the decline raises the possibility that the US Mint may decrease the prices for silver numismatic products.

The US Mint is able to adjust the prices for gold and platinum products as frequently as weekly under a flexible pricing system. The prices for silver numismatic products may only be adjusted through publication within the Federal Register and such changes have only occurred following substantial price changes in the underlying metal.

The last pricing adjustment for silver numismatic products had occurred in July 2013. At the time, the market price of silver had dipped below the $20 per ounce level and product prices were decreased by $5 for each ounce of silver content.

Based on this and previous price changes for silver products, the US Mint seems to be responsive to silver market price changes of around $5 per ounce. This suggests that $15 per ounce may be a key level in determining any potential silver product price changes. Collectors contemplating purchases of silver products should keep in mind the possibility that prices may be lowered if silver recedes further.

    Brad – I can’t seem to find the total mintage limit for the 5 oz Silver Bullion Coin – it appears to be rather nebulous, I did find this from earlier this year –

    Mintages –

    Mintages have not been announced for either the collector or bullion versions. For the latter, the Mint only notes that it anticipates having sufficient inventories to meet demand.

    So perhaps there is no defined limit(?)

    These past articles more pertinent than ever (IMO)-

    The 2014 5 oz Silver Bullion Coin are minted to demand…whatever that means in this market.

    “The US Mint has indicated that they anticipate having sufficient inventories to meet demand. Information was not provided on any specific production quantity.”

    Need some help here. Yesterday I posted that there was Not any bargains in Saint Gaudens and Lo and Behold someone did a Buy It Now for $875.00. This has to be a shame sale, but I don’t know enough about how the bay works to know how someone games the system? You drill down on the Buyer and it has an expired offer for $1,600.00. It doesn’t show where anyone actually bought it at $875.00 but it is still listed as being “Sold”. Any help here?

  5. GoldFishin says

    @cagcrisp- a couple of things could have happened here. The seller made a mistake when listing the buy it now price and the listing sold for what price he entered. The seller made a mistake and accidentally accepted a low ball buy it now offer. If you get in a hurry and hit the wrong button when a buyer places a best offer you can mistakenly accept the offer. However, in either case you can get out of the sale, either by Ebay’s software that allows you to reverse the sale or by contacting Ebay directly. As you can see, the seller has relisted the item again.
    There are bot programs that scan new listings on ebay looking for listing mistakes or low prices. You would never have a chance to beat these programs for a listing mistake like this. Once upon a time it was possible to pick up bargains by using a certain search criteria and refreshing constantly for low priced listings, in other words, sellers that didn’t really know what an item was worth and priced them below retail value. That ship has longed since sailed with the advent of these bot programs.

  6. cagcrisp says

    @GoldFishin, Thanks for the help. I did see that he had another Gauden in his story. Just didn’t realize that it was the Same Gauden.

  7. Sith says

    My 2 cents on ATB Bullion mintages, and ASE sales. Its basic supply and demand with the mint running out of ASE, it is going to pull all available silver to that program. So the reality is how much silver do the suppliers already have in the pipe to produce more ATB blanks? IE the mint just ran out of silver ASE’s and we know they will cut sales in December to increase inventory for the 2015 ASEs, and running out of ATBs does not make the news.

    GSM Mintage = 35K
    Shenandoah = 25K-35K (lets call it 30K)
    Arches = 22K (sold out)
    GSD = 19K-22K (lets call it 22K)
    Everglades = 25K? (temporarily sold out at 22k)

    This is partially based on the hypothesis of another poster (you can dig it up and give him credit)
    The mint produced 35K of GSM and is still sitting on about 2K of them . All demand for the GSM coins went to the “P” version which sold out at about 25K. 35K is still a lot less than 39+ million , so I’m not sure why they still have not sold out. Anyway Shenandoah should have been produced in quantity but as the “P” version again absorbed most of the mintage. The mint then cut back on Arches to 22K based on the “P” version subscription sales. I have no clue how many GSD were made but based on the sellout of Arches and the temporary sellout of Everglades at 22K I would say no more that 22K of GSD were made, Now with the mint throwing all production into ASEs, and with the demand for Everglades I don’t think they will produce any more GSDs, and their is a chance less than 22K were made. If that production is 20K or less we have a winner, less than 22k it will do well, 22K (or more) it will do more than hold its own but not much more as its an ugly design. Again my 2 cents.

  8. VA Rich says

    Thanks Sith for the clarification and analysis!

    Does anyone have thoughts on why Ag dips in the Hong Kong market around midnight to 0600 am EST. It seems to happen quite frequently.., makes for a good buying opp, just curious.

  9. NC_Stacker says

    VA Rich

    IMHO I think the reason why there are dips from midnight to 06:00 is because the minipulators are lowering the spot to help China to make large orders of PM’s to offset the US bonds they are buying. Then after the orders are placed the spot will increase closing the window.

    China isn’t making money on the US bonds but they are making up on the back end in the PM’s for what they really want in the first place.

    VA Rich:

    Just in case you’re interested, here are the latest Mintage Figures for the entire AtB Program (as of November 5th):

    Hot Springs National Park 33,000 27,000
    Yellowstone National Park 33,000 27,000
    Yosemite National Park 33,000 27,000
    Grand Canyon National Park 33,000 26,019
    Mount Hood National Forest 33,000 26,928
    Gettysburg National Military Park 126,700 24,625
    Glacier National Park 126,700 20,856
    Olympic National Park 104,900 18,398
    Vicksburg National Military Park 58,100 18,594
    Chickasaw National Recreation Area 48,700 16,827
    El Yunque National Forest 24,000 17,314
    Chaco Culture National Historical Park 24,400 17,146
    Acadia National Park 25,400 14,978
    Hawaii Volcanoes National Park 20,000 14,863
    Denali National Park 20,000 15,225
    White Mountain National Forest 35,000 20,530
    Perry’s Victory & Int’l. Peace Memorial 30,000 17,707
    Great Basin National Park 30,000 17,792
    Fort McHenry National Monument 30,000 19,802
    Mount Rushmore National Memorial 35,000 23,547
    Great Smoky Mountains National Park 33,000 24,722
    Shenandoah National Park 22,800 27,280
    Arches National Park 22,000 27,294
    Great Sand Dunes National Park 16,800 22,089
    Everglades National Park 22,000

    The figures in the first column are mintages for Bullion, while the second column figures are for the UNC-P series.

    Interestingly, 2014 may just be the first time in the AtB Series when a Bullion issue has a lower mintage than the corresponding UNC issue; specifically the Shenandoah, Arches and Great Sand Dunes issues. I guess it depends on how many 5-ounce blanks the Mint has left and how many they can mint in the next 1-1/2 months. But it was interesting to see Arches (and for a while, Sand Dunes) being listed as “Sold out at the Mint” by APMEX and Provident last week

  11. cagcrisp says

    @NC_Stacker, Do Really believe what you just posted? Really? Who exactly are the “manipulators”? So the “manipulators” are Lowering the price of Silver so the Chinese can Buy and then when they are told the Chinese are finished Buying then the same “manipulators” are then raising the price of Silver? Is that correct? So what you are describing is a Zero Sum Game, so Who or What is the offsetting Losing party is said scheme? And why if you have figured it out, Why haven’t the losers figured it out? Why Exactly are they doing it Early in the morning? Do you think they are doing it while the United States is asleep? Like the Baltimore Colts sneaking out in the night? Why are they doing it day after day like VA Rich says? Why not do it all at once? And you do know that the PM market is not a drop in the bucket to the overall Bonds that the Chinese hold? Why do you think the Chinese are not making any money on the US bonds they are holding? and what do the Chinese “really want in the first place”?

    Inquiring Minds would like to know about your incredible IMHO posting…

  12. VA Rich says

    Thanks guys – appreciate it!

    GSM didn’t release this year until 04/07/2014, so if the mint follows the same course, it’ll be some time before the next release.., though it’s Nebraska…

  13. VA Rich says

    Even should the mint lower the price on the P pucks, with the exception of the turkey, there may be some news lows among the 2015…, in comparison to this years and 2016 designs, next year may not give us much to be excited about puckwise. I will pick up a tube of Kisatchie.

  14. cagcrisp says

    @VA Rich, I am not a Buyer of ATB coins, however, I will buy at least two tubes of the Kisatchie ATB’s. I have a Lot of turkey hunting friends. I showed them the turkey design and they are all in. None of them have Ever bought a Mint coin before…

    And………… IF they go with the 10 point buck design in 2016 for Kentucky, guess what……….

    Mr. Moran called out design 6, stating that “every Kentuckian needs to have a 10-point buck in his pocket”.

  15. Hidalgo says

    I read the posts on this blog periodically. So it’s possible I may have missed word that the US Mint has listed a 2014 Coin and Chronicles Set – Franklin D. Roosevelt set for December 2014.

    I am not the least bit surprised that such a set will be available. Historians consider FDR as one of the greatest US Presidents of all time. It should be interesting to see what will be included in the set. Perhaps the FDR dollar coin and perhaps a Roosevelt dime. Hmmmmm, what else?

  16. Hidalgo says

    @Bob R – the Ivory Billed Woodpeck, aka the “God Bird” would be better than the Pileated Woodpecker for Kisatchie National Forest. I still hope that one day – someday – someone will find a live Ivory Billed Woodpecker somewhere in the USA…..

    Thanks for the recap on the puck program sales. Having watched the silver charts for a while myself, you do have to notice peaks and valleys at or about the same times most days. Seems to be much more automated or computer orogrammed than gold charts, and knee jerked like oil and other commodities. Silver apparently is like corn, no intrinsic value, and only worth what you are willing to pay if you need it to squeeze into ethanol, computer chips, or whatever.

    Manipulation in the markets, naw. And there is no inflation, no Area 51, and most assuredly the flying saucer you saw was just a NOAA weather balloon.

  19. VA Rich says

    Thanks again guys for all the silver and AtB input over the past week or so. For those wanting to pick up a tube or rounds at discount, may be worth wild loading up your cart, setting an alert, and if your phone goes off, & just placing the order on those silver dips real-time. So much volatility you may save yourself some good $$$.

  20. VA Rich says

    cag- I think you’ve done more this year to advertise the clad BHoF and upcoming AtBs then the mint has in the years I’ve been collecting – good for you! I love the turkey design as I’ve screwed up so many turkey hunts that that flight path was that last fleeting memory of that day.., without question that design will resonate with many outside of the collecting community, anticipate a very quick sell out – very quick.

    Oh, and Mr. Moran knows a thing or two about Kentuckians, if the 10 pointer is bagged – we have a winner! The mint will up the mintage on that one, like they did with Jackie of the FS Series. I showed the design to family and friends back home and they’ll be buying their first pucks, and a lot of quarters.

  21. VA Rich says

    Bob R – you’re right, turkeys are everywhere, though when I was a teenager and hunting in the 80’s, few states east of the Mississippi had turkeys. The explosive growth of turkeys over the past 30 years is attributable to very concerted conversation efforts to bring back our natural heritage. I personally would much rather see free ranging turkey, bison and elk in their nature territory than the idiots from 3rd world nations that I have to commute along side of in any given day that populate at will (& you’re subsiding), though with that line crossing.

    Yes, without question, the Wookpecker design is awesome.

    I just wish we didn’t have 2 great design for 1 coin and instead had many great designs for 5 coins!

  22. fmtransmitter says

    HSN was in full for at $479 plus ship[ping for ANACS 70 sets of Kennedy’s…He sounded like a kid in a candy store..Too funny…Then he started talking about the Disney set and said you could cancel your sub if you didn’t want, like Pluto, and female host said, “Oh, the Dog!” and looked at him and then apologized…Pure entertainment!

  23. fmtransmitter says

    So until the bugs are worked out, there is no reason to have a website or subscriptions if you plan to pick up single items as well to save on shipping. You need to call or WAIT for the item to be live on the site to add to your bag. DO NOT ATTEMPT TO ADD BEFORE THEY ARE RELEASED or you will be paying for extra shipping costs!

  24. GoldFishin says

    @VA RICH- looks like our JFK Silver prediction of another flipper’s nightmare is playing out right on schedule, even without any significant supply yet, prices are already weak with the enhanced and proof coins closing around $85 and this D coin closed at $56. The Reverse is fairing a little better so far. I think we should be able to pick coins up separately and get the entire set for around $240, maybe less. I am no hurry at all.

  25. Bob R says

    VA Rich – Yeah as a teenager here in KS during the 60’s we hunted Greater Prairie Chicken, Pheasant, and Quail, there were very few Turkeys at the time. Now here in the city which is over run by Canada Geese, now the Turkey free ranges too. They are not a problem as the Geese are yet, but let’s see in 20 years.

  26. Hidalgo says

    If one really wants to add a certified set of 4 silver Kennedy half dollars to their collection, I would recommend waiting about 6-9 months after sales end. By that time, buyers will be moving on to the next hottest item that the US Mint has for sale, demand will drop, and prices will fall from current levels.

  27. Bob R says

    I hope when they do the KS Flint Hills ATB they use the Tall Grasses and Greater Prairie Chicken, enough Buffalo theme coins have been done.

  28. cagcrisp says

    @NC_Stacker & TheCoinKeeper, Thanks for the Video and Audio you two provided, That’s what makes a Market..

    For everyone Buying there is Someone Selling. Differences in Opinions…

  29. Bob R says

    There is no odd trading hours. There are basically 3ea trading cycles in a day. Europe, USA, and Asia. If you follow all the trading very often what the USA market trends Asia will follow, generally. If the USA makes a small drop or gain sometimes Asia will follow but may be larger margins, at times. If I am in Hong Kong and see that gld dropped say $5 ounce it is logical that that market may follow too, until the next cycle when it may have a up tick in London, or back to the USA baring major economic news at the time. Just my opnion.

  30. fmtransmitter says

    I watched that video and I can say when I wanted to sell, I simply was unable to log into my trading account. They turn it off and don’t answer the phones! It’s a scam. They wanted real weath, property, and that is what they got. Real estate is now real wealth which equals a stronger dollar…

  31. VA Rich says

    GF – Wow – so soon, who would have thunk it?! If this holds true they’re is already a huge variance between some of today’s auctions and what the retailers are asking. Thanks for posting, all day yesterday I was getting these emails from retailers advertising their sets in the $380-$479 range which is ridiculous and I have not had time to check the bay. It’s very welcome news as I’m running over budget on the remodeling project, so it’s tile instead of silver for now! Yeah, so I’ll kick this purchase down the road as well.

  32. VA Rich says

    Coin Keeping – outstanding reference, thanks for posting. I’ll have to go back and take it in a few times , very interesting.

    Bob R – hear ya on the repeat of characters that continue to find themselves on the AtBs like rocks, big birds, distant valleys, etc. The mint should advise the NPS advisor of the site being recognized to mix it up a bit and encourage them to stay away from past design.

    I really feel Cumberland Gap adviser/selection committee missed a BIG OPPORTUNITY to have a truly unique and rare coin design instead of the same ole theme (unless the 10-pointer is selected). I am still of the opinion that a Cumberland Gap design with a cave view with stalagmites, stalactites and a bat or spelunker would have been a big, big hit. Or even a copper pot of moon-shining still would have been better than some off distant valley view again.

    So with that said, yes, the AtB designs need to be more creative and unique going forward ~

  33. Sith says

    As their was talk about the silver price manipulation

    “Moments ago the FT reported that alongside admissions of rigging every other market, UBS – always the proverbial first rat in the coalmine, to mix and match metaphors- is about to “settle” allegations of gold and silver rigging. In other words: it admits it had rigged the gold and silver markets, without of course “admitting or denying” it did so.”

  34. NC_Stacker says

    Bringing things back on subject:

    With the Mint running out of planchets for the Silver Eagles, could it be possible that they lower the mintage of the ATB’s and send the 5oz planchets to be melted into 1oz planchets for the Eagles?

  35. thePhelps says

    NC..I think it is more likely the mint will just wait for more planchets. It makes little sense to limit the production of both products.

    That guy that wrote the “Conspiracy” story needs writing class… he scatters his thoughts and the story all over the place.

  36. Sith says

    NC_Stacker – No they will not, even when they are stuck with a ton of them and had to discount them in 2011 they did not melt them. It is not cost effective to melt them. Their is no need to lower the mintage as they don’t need to produce the entire mintage,and as mentioned earlier their is no mintage to lower as the mint claimed they had enough product to meet demand, but as they can’t meet ASE demand I would take that comment with a grain of salt.

  37. jeff says

    Wes the mint thanks you for buying their poor quality coins. There’s a pattern most here don’t recognize the mint is no were near their mintage limits, they have missed everyone since the bhof. Many have just given up however many here say the low mintage will cause a premium. There are many coins with low mintage and no appreciation the Kennedy’s falls in this catogory. The sleepers P/D clads you can have them for under $10 so pay $100 pay $1250 buy what you want even if it’s poor quality no customer service no thinking out of the box just generic releases day in day out no imagination . Just one posters opinion. 1.2 oz. Of silver $100 .75 oz. Of gold $1250 oh there is a sliding scale when the mint is remind by the posters here for golds not the silvers they will never change the silver there stuck bought a shit load years ago when they tried to hegde there bet it back fired.

  38. Dave SW FL says

    Well, I finally got to take a look at my clad Kennedy sets tonight. They got shipped to my Northern address by mistake and I just got back up North…….don’t even ask why.

    I am STUNNED!!!!!!! I have only opened one set, and they appear to the naked eye to be PERFECT and proof like. Hope the other 4 sets are as nice. These will be highly appreciated Christmas presents. I may even cherry pick the best of them to grade as a Christmas present to myself!

    Plus I got a nice reminder of how well the previous shipper packaged the product.

    Only $10 . Wow

  39. jeff says

    Silver going to $12 strengthening dollar. The reason the mint has announced they ran out of silver planchets is because they were allocated to the 2016 ASE expect sudden sell outs in silver products just don’t know which ones my guess first will be the burnished. They do this almost every year run out of supply thank god there is 8 weeks of nothing coming from the mint. Maybe time to revamp quality issues, hire educated employees that have an idea of quality control maybe a packer or two use gloves, sterile envirnment, have pride in what their doing not just throw the planchets around. Innovate innovate innovate innovate innovate suggestion fractional silver products, silver dollar notes, serial numbers coins, retired war ships, different shaped coinage, I’m sure ours have there ideas just anything instead of the same old same this is the 21st century let’s change it up .

  40. Hidalgo says

    There is a really good deal for anyone who wants a set of NGC certified 2014 50th Anniversary Silver Kennedy half dollars, FIRST Releases SP70 PF70. Just $318.74 for all 4 coins.

    I still thinks it’s pricey, but heck, some folks want to be the first to own a set, so here’s a great opportunity to do so.

    A one online website that we all know of sold out of both 4 coin sets, Black core and White core NGC 70’s that’s about 400+ sets sold @ 399 each. Seeing the TV show today the S didn’t have the zebra stripes.

    I think in the long run the silver four piece Kennedy set will do well because you will need it if you collect reverse proofs, and also if you collect enhanced uncirculateds.

    Jeff, I am glad they appreciate it because they put out a high quality beautiful set. The main complaint I keep seeing is that silver is down and the mint didn’t give a price break. Too bad.

    @NC_Stacker, Do Really believe what you just posted

    cagcrisp — actually NC_Stacker is not far off the mark; I am not sure the manipulation is working, “exactly this way; however, Market manipulation in precious metals has been taking place for some time now. So –yes, to do really believe what Stacker is stating.

    Not enough time or room to discus now — do a little research of your own and report back. Thx.

    Not to mention there will only be 75k of each design…They DID throw us a bone. The P is the only Proof to be made at Philly since 1964!

    @Dave, Like I have said before there are opinions on here that I respect, and there are those that I don’t. The more someone posts it helps me separate those that I do from those that I don’t. You have your ideas and I have mine. That’s what makes a market. I wish you well…

    To get a Gold price Decrease you will need the remaining 4 Gold fixes to average $1,144.23 and a PM close on Wednesday under $1,150.00.

    I polled out my 2013 West Point set to compare the enhanced unc ASE to the enhanced unc Kennedy. The ASE wins hands down, but that is because the obverse really stands out on the ASE. It just has so many more details that stand out with the different finishes. The Kennedy only has a big head. But I am looking forward to any new enhanced uncs, the ASE is just such a beautiful coin. When you look back, the mint has sure turned out some exciting coins in the past few years. This is an exciting time to be a collector of moderns!

    Presale ship date for Everglades is changing from 11/12 to 11/20. Either they the sold out of the initial purchases, or the mint is delaying shipping. I will find out in few day as my coins initially stated they would ship by 11/12. It looks like Everglades is going to be a winner.

    For what it is worth, the remaining Everglades subscription or enrollment or whatever it was from last week has shipped and been delivered already. Doubt there were too many who bought on the first day but those who did already have them .

    With silver falling and the mint staying with $160.00 for the 5 ozer it should be be interesting just how many the mint does sale. As far as the Everglades being the best one of the lot I personally don’t see it.
    I have had my silver Kennedy’s set and they really do look great. I just hope as far as the Kennedy’s I hope they don’t try to pull another rabbit out of there hat.

    Congratulations, however, you don’t need to justify yourself to me — believe whatever you will. Really? Everyone has ideas and opinions — since when?

    Some people are less secure in those idea’s and opinions than others and the more they show those insecurities, the less important it is either way, especially when justifying themselves by stating the obvious, but then again — hey, those are just ideas.

    I opened my 5 oz Everglades today. It will be sent back for a replacement as there is a small brown spot on the spoon bills wing. I like the design and really hope the replacement piece will be better.
