2015 Homestead 5 oz Silver Bullion Coins Sold Out

homesteadThe United States Mint has informed their network of authorized purchasers that the 2015 Homestead National Monument of America 5 oz Silver Bullion Coins have sold out.

The bullion coins first went on sale to authorized purchasers on February 17, 2015. During the month of February, the US Mint received orders for 20,000 coins, followed by 15,000 coins during March, making for total distribution of 35,000.

This amount exceeds the total mintages for each of the 2014-dated releases of the bullion series. The final figures were 33,000 for Great Smoky Mountains, 28,000 for Shenandoah National Park, 22,000 each for Arches and Great San Dunes National Park, and 34,000 for Everglades National Park.

The series low for the bullion coins was reached in 2012 with the Hawaii Volcanoes and Denali National Park coins at 20,000 pieces each.

The US Mint has scheduled the next release of the bullion series featuring Kisatchie National Forest for release on April 20, 2015.

The 5 oz silver coins are also offered in numismatic version with an uncirculated finish and the “P” mint mark. The Homestead design remains available at last reported sales of 18,198 from a maximum mintage of 30,000. The numismatic coin featuring Kisatchie Natoinal Forest is scheduled for release on April 28, 2015.

    I wasn’t a big fan of the Homestead design….but I did pick up a bullion version for $98 from Mint Products a couple weeks ago.

  2. Boz says

    This was the cheapest one for quite a while seems like, due to lower silver and free shipping promotions. That may be why it went into higher montage and sold out relatively quick. Agreed that the design was less than spectacular.

  3. fmtransmitter says

    Dealers and flippers buy them up. Quicker sell out, quicker they can start charging more and get FS grading…

  4. Teach says

    What do you guys think will be the final mintage of the P puck? 22K, 25K, 27K or sell out?

  5. charles says

    fm…I think the low price is why the Homestead bullion sold out so fast.. Sorry, but I disagree with your “dealers and flippers” buy them up….if that were the case, why didn’t 2014 Arches and GSD sell out at higher totals and why haven’t the 2014 P’s sold out…..price, price, price.

    OT
    Ordered one clad U S Marshal half and one silver dollar in the same order. They got shipped in 2 separate orders ( as did the last order) one day apart. Are they minting the silver dollars on a daily basis?

    If I could afford the shipping charges, I would order one of each every day for a week just to see if they are too lazy to walk to another area to stick them into the same box.

    Once again, your taxpayer dollars at waste…….er, at work (?)

    Hi all,

    Off topic, but what would be a good price on a sealed box of 27 2014 D Enhanced Sacagawea $1 Coin and Currency Sets TA9. The box was shipped December 18th, 2014 so they are still eligible for First Strike designation by PCGS. Is $44.50 per set too much?

    Thanks,

    Matt

    I figured these were sold out when I saw the update to 35,000 sold last night. That’s a nice round number and it’s around the typical high-end mintage in recent years.

    It appeared the initial run of these was 20,000, though. So, that could mean that some later designs this year may tie the 2012 lows if we have a repeat of what happened with some 2014 designs. One production run and that was it.

  9. thePhelps says

    I think the biggest problem with this sellout is the fact it is such a weak coin. Now people are going to over pay for a bad coin v=because they’ll hear “soldout”.

    I agree – the only reason it soldout is because of the price – at about $100 for 5 ounces of silver it was a good price.

  10. gary says

    I expect all of the 2015 bullion ATBs to have mintage totals of 25 to 30K. Unless spot silver goes up higher to around $20 to $25 ounce this year there is little chance of a low mintage design as happened in 2012.

  11. Larry says

    Being a coin collector and not a bullion collector, I have only bought the P pucks. But after looking at some of the nicer bullion coins, one can only wonder how wonderful a cameo proof P version of these would have looked. Sigh.

  12. Frankie says

    @ Matt, it looks like you found my box I have for sale at the CCF. 🙂
    I’ll add some sales data to the corresponding forum topic tonight – been keeping track for a while now.

  13. Frankie says

    @Matt, I posted some data I have been collecting for the last few months over at the CCF – direct link:
    http://www.coincommunity.com/forum/topic.asp?TOPIC_ID=190284&whichpage=27#1878393
    As you can see, me offering the box at $44.45 each is about $10/set less than the average eBay going rate. So, no I’m afraid, no wriggle room on these. 🙂
    Feel free to contact me through the other forum.

    And since I do not want to hijack this forum, I’m not surprised that sales numbers for the Homestead were higher – these were the cheapest ATB bullion thus far and I expect this year’s ATB bullion to have similar mintages of around 30k, unless silver goes back up again. If it drops further, then sales may be as high as 40k, but let’s not go there – too early… 🙂

    The turkey! The turkey’s next, is gotta be way better looking than Homestead– too much blah on a coin that size, whereas the quarter looked perfect with those elements. Of the 26 bullion pucks I’ve bought, it was cheapest at $99 tied with Everglades (and I bought five of those alone.) Blue Ridge and Bombay should max out also, the weak design of the group is Saratoga, which MAY be sleeper when all is said and done. Too few elements on such a large coin is the problem.

  15. Ends in Error says

    The Saratoga design should go over very well in todays America. It’s such a gay looking design that every Gay Bar and Restaurant will want these to put over the place. Also every gay boy / girl / man / woman / couple / baby will be bedding one also.

    Look for a fast sell out.

  16. Ends in Error says

    I meant “needing” not “bedding”. Don’t know what’s with this “smart phone ” sometimes.

  17. Clark says

    Homestead 5oz now on “backorder” status on the Mint’s website, however, Everglades and Great Sand Dunes are still available.

    I almost returned the extra Homestead 5oz the Mint I accidentally ordered; now I’m glad I decided to keep it.

  18. Brian says

    To those that are talking about how much $$$ they are raking in, profiting from the fact that the f’in mint didn’t have a household ordering limit on the 2014 C & C sets, why don’t you save it. I for one read this blog (and associated comments) because I’m intetested in coin collecting. The mint products are meant for hobbyists, not for businessmen. But alas the coin “industry” is alive and well.

  19. Hidalgo says

    I have buying coins on eBay to complete a collection I started. I decided to check on prices for two recent sets — the 2014 Dollar Coin and Currency Set and the 2014 First Spouse Bronze Medal set.

    I was surprised to see that the 2014 Dollar set continues to increase in price – it’s going for around $50 now (instead of $40 or so when flippers sold their sets after receiving them). As I expected, the 2014 First Spouse Bronze Medal set has dropped significantly in price (around $40 a set). I question if these sets will increase in price again. Demand for medals is clearly much less than for coins. So it will be interesting to see price movements for this set in the months to come….

  20. mark says

    Does pcgs do secure plus on the spouse bronze medals? I have a 2007 Adams mule that could use a cleaning (restoration).

  21. CasualCollector says

    @Hidalgo
    I noticed the same thing regarding the two sets you mentioned (2014 Coin & Currency and the 2014 First Spouse Medals)

    The underlying factors in both cases could be “SUPPLY”

    In the case of the Coin & Currency, the supply was limited to 50,000 sets, and that number has not (will not) change due to product limits on the set. And if we believe the HSN Guy, he has personally purchased about 33% of the entire print run — meaning there are even less sets available in original form on eBay. IMO this set continues to rise due to its limited production and the coins’ Enhanced Uncirculated finish.

    On the other hand, the 2014 FS Medals were once thought to be “sold out” at the mint — so that drove up the demand and prices on eBay. But along came a second surprise offering on February 10th (which have only recently been delivered about a week ago to those who ordered them). The anticiapation and sudden infusion of (my guess about 2,500 additional sets) casused the sudden drop in prices for these sets. The unknown is if the Mint will offer more of these, or if that was the final batch. Prices seem to have hit a “bottom”, but it all depends on how fast those that ordered will run out of the secondary inventory. And of course, if the Mint starts offering them again — watch out below…

  22. Sith says

    I don’t know why everyone is fixating on mintage. APMEX is selling the GSD ATB less than Everglades, and $100 less, than Arches.

  23. Sith says

    @Brian – I respectfully disagree, the Mint caters to the big boys , they have deeper pockets

  24. Dan in Fla says

    Check with the BEP for Founding Fathers 2015 currency set. $21.95 and on sale now with a limit of 10 per household and 5000 total sets.

  25. D Rittenhouse says

    @Dan in Fla,
    I might have been interested in the BEP’s 2015 Founding Fathers set if both notes were series 2013 (i.e. signed by Jack Lew). But for some unknown stupid reason, BEP chose to use a series 2009 $2 note (i.e. signed by Timmy “TurboTax” Geithner).

  26. SA4H says

    The 150th Anniversary Currency Set released in December with 10,000 set is still available for $49.95.: http://www.moneyfactorystore.gov/150thanniversarycurrencyset.aspx

    So I am not sure if the Founding Father set will be sold out anytime soon????

    When was the last time we see any products from BEP that hold or appreciate in value over time?
    Buying a set for your collection/history is good but don’t bank on it.
    I am not really into currency collection so I will probably not buy any sets.
