Yosemite Five Ounce Coins at 25,338


The United States Mint has confirmed that the waiting list notice which previously appeared on the online product page for the Yosemite National Park Five Ounce Silver Uncirculated Coin was “inadvertently posted.” Based on the new report available today, sales have reached 25,338 out of the 27,000 maximum mintage.

The following statement has been provided by the Mint:

The 2010 America the Beautiful Five Ounce Silver Uncirculated Coins — Yosemite National Park are not sold out. Unfortunately, however, a message saying that a waitlist for the coins had been put into place was inadvertently posted to the United States Mint’s online catalog on June 23. As soon as we learned the message had been posted, we removed it. We also lifted the household order limits for these coins the week of July 4. We regret the error on our part and the inconvenience the posting of the waitlist language caused our customers.

It seems rather unusual that a notice incorrectly posted on the website would not be realized for more than two weeks. The appearance of the waiting list notice and the presumed sell out was reported at various online and print publications such as CoinUpdate.com, Mint News Blog, and Numismaster/Numismatic News. The presence of the notice also likely had an impact on the pace of sales over the past few weeks. Many potential customers viewing the notice may have chosen not to order since it indicates a reduced chance of the order actually being fulfilled.

With the waiting list notice and ordering limits removed, we may now see some indication of the level of demand for multiple coin orders.

The Grand Canyon Five Ounce Silver Coins continue to track slower than the Yosemite release. Sales have now reached 20,834, which compares to sales of 23,104 Yosemite coins over a comparable sales period.

    the u.s. mint should have offer 20,000 instead of 27,000 for collectors. and the bullion should produce over 100,000 instead of 33,000 on its first year.

    You just have to wonder if this "inadvertent" posting was a ploy to drum up business.

    I got my GC ATB this morning and it looks like another nice one so that makes 4 nice ATB P coins so far for me. I hope my good luck continues.

    My only complaint is that the coins are so damn hard to get out of the boxes – I literally spent 20-30 mins. getting the coin out of the box while trying not to damage either the coin or the box. I figure this will be a one time event because now that it is back in the box – it's in there for good now because I have no desire to go thruogh that again. As far as I'm concerned the two sides of this coin are a GC reverse and blue cardboard obverse – sorry George.

    3000 AGE unc's sold so far and as prices continue to increase this will probably slow sales even more which will increase the chances this coin will have the lowest sales figures of all the AGE's including the proofs and fractionals. But as PM prices continue to increase, collectible AGE's in future years may be even lower – maybe higher gold prices will be a good reason for the mint to bring back fractional AGE unc's in the future.

    Well when silver is over $100 oz then $200 oz and higher people will have a more favorable opinion about these ATB coins and those of us who bought now will be glad we did and those who didn't will be wishing they had.

    I think calling the series dead is a bit premature. I think every coin up to and including Mount Hood is likely to sell out.

    But after that, we'll see.

    In a way I wouldn't be sad if they ended the "P" program after Mount Hood. While I do like the coins quite a bit (in terms of quality and design I think Grand Canyon is the best yet), they are an awful strain on my finances. The regular bullion versions are much more affordable, and switching to them would be something of a relief, assuming the Mint makes enough for everyone.

    This has been one of the most bizarre coin series. First the mint produced these last year on silver when silver was around 20 bucks. Next they wait around for half year after striking to release them when silver was near a peak of 40 something. This then justifies a ginormous price. This in turn puts stress on many collector budgets. Then the demand starts to fizzle out.

    For some reason the mint wants the 2010's sold out before releasing the 2011's. And they won't sell out fast enough even at a modest mintage of 27 large. Man, this whole thing is weird. I plan on the 2010's and after that things get very iffy for me.

    Even if the 2011 AGE unc. coins continue to sell at the current rate of about 400 a month for the next 12 months (which is probably a high guess) that would be an additional 4800 sales for a total sales figure of about 7800 which would be about 1000 less than the 2008 unc 1/4 oz. sales figure.

    Even if gold prices go down some – how long would it last? It's hard to predict prices in the short term but unless there is a long term correction in gold prices or maybe something else that dramatically increases demand in these coins I just don't see how it is likely the 2011 AGE unc coins will sell more than 8800 but we'll see.

    So is the 2008-W 1/4 oz with a mintage of 8,883 the lowest to date? And the lowest W unc one oz coin is the 2008-W with a mintage of 11,908?

    But wasn't there also a 4 coin set sold that would increase these numbers?

  18. Anonymous says

    I said from the start the the wait list notice for Yosemite was bogus. I knew there was no way they would have sold enough coins so quickly after the 23,XXX reported sales number to reach 27,000. I always suspected it was a ploy to get people to try to order faster. The mentality might be that if you place an order quickly enough after the wait list notice, you will probably still get a coin.

    Mount Hood should be hanging around for a long while. That one will probably still be for sale in October!

    If the Mint hadn't been so dumb as to sell these individually on staggered release dates, they would have sold all 27,000 sets of five on the first day. Even if they didn't offer a set of all five in a display case, they could have at least offered all five coins individually at once! I would have bought all five the first day, slow website or not. I've been through worse.

    I agree the Mint should of offered the 2010 ATB 5 oz as a set. They could of sold them like the proof gold eagles with options to buy an individual coin or the complete set.
    They could of sold 15,000 complete sets and then offered 12,000 individual coins. (or vice versa)

    well I don't know what life on this planet will be like in 500 years but just looking at recent history – pm prices in the 70's increased more than 20 fold and the economy today is considerably worse so silver prices at $200 in a few years may likely be an underestimate.

    The AGE website states:

    "the mintages listed are generally composed of individual coins sales plus any sales made through multiple coin sets"

    so the 8883 figure for the 2008 w 1/4 oz is the total combined sales figure for individual coin and the coins sold in the 4 coin set.

    Thanks, I see that now…I looked at the 2008-W 1/2 oz Buffalo mintages and see the total includes all the options…individual, 8-8-08 set, etc.

    Again, with the 2011-W one oz unc being the ONLY option, it will be easy to track total sells.
    I noticed on ebay that there is not a single coin for sell or already sold in the OGP…all are slabbed…and not many of them. I think one of these in the OGP may be the rarest of all!!

    I've been hoarding silver for the past 3 years or so and my only regret is that I didn't start much sooner.

    I actually don't own any physical gold nut I think the 2011 w unc coin might be a good place to start – if I can just get the money together and hopefully buy before the mint raises prices again.

    I was also looking on ebay and a couple of other websites for the 2011 AGE unc coin (APMEX is currently sold out) but another website has the coin slabbed NGC 69 for $30 – $40 less than current mint price and slabbed NGC 70 (brown label) for about $1900 which I was considering. But maybe I'll just buy from the mint to get OGP – like I said hopefully before prices go up again.

    Ever since the bank started paying me 1% or less on my money I started looking at percentage saved vs. dollars saved. Here’s an example of why buying Proof Gold Eagles from the mint is a better value today than it was two years ago.

    When I started buying PMs a few years ago I paid $14 plus $2 (15% over spot) plus shipping and 3% credit card surcharge to the PM dealers for my ASE. The premium was well over 20% for the total purchase.

    In comparison, when gold was $800 the mint charged $1085 for a Proof Gold Eagle. The premium is $218 or 20%. Today gold is over $1550 and the price of a Proof Gold Eagle is $1785. The premium is now $235 but it’s only around 13% which is a 7% savings! Factor in $4.95 for shipping and NO credit card surcharge and the value today is better than the PM dealers and better than 2 years ago.

    If only we could buy bullion direct from the mint we could save more.

    I agree the Mint should have offered all 5 2010P ATBs at once. That would have sold out in a day.

    Now that the slower sales of Yosemite and GC clearly show that interest is waning, the Mint should do something so it doesn't suffer the same fate as the FS series.

    First, they should not increase the mintage of the 2011P ATBs. It should remain at 27,000. Secondly, they should offer all 5 of the 2011Ps at once. I bet all those people saying they won't buy or not sure about the 2011 would be jumping back in.

    Now watch that sell out in a few days if not the first day.

    If the government expands the debt limit again, metal prices will go absolutely bananas. The general trend upward in PM prices is being driven primarily by inflation, and an increase of the debt ceiling sure as heck doesn't mean less inflation. A formal announcement of QE3 will also send metals prices exploding, probably putting silver back on track for $50.

    A stay the same or one tier increase is likely next week. A two tier increase in one week? Not likely. If it happened that would signal way bigger problems in the economy than are being reported.

    The price is getting pretty close to $1,600 today. The averages that will determine next week's price begin tomorrow. If gold climbs a little higher and the fixes are just under or above $1,600 for the next several days, theoretically a two-tier price increase could take place. The coins are currently priced in the $1,500-$1,549.99 tier. If next week's average falls in the $1,600-$1,649.99 range, that would be a two-tier price increase.

    So actually, the way it looks now, a two-tier price increase is a very real possibility.

    Big increases in metal prices give incentive to investors to sell their metal or metal stock which would knock down the price along with other manipulations. The investors and manipulators control the price. The Mint just responds to the market. I'll go with the people who say one tier or no tier increase.

And don't forget there may be Palladium eagles sometime in the near future and those coins would likely be as popular and unique if not more than the ATB coins.

    I have to agree that the 27,000/design mintage for ATB P coins that the Mint comes up is pretty reasonable.

    According to current sale number, it is sufficient for the real demand from real collectors (excluding silver investors who should better off with bullion version).

    And yet it is small enough to reach a quick (relative to other Mint products) final sale out even with relatively high premiums currently.

    I believe they will stick to this mintage for the 2011 P's and I see no reason why they will cancel the series at all.

    silver is a better investment than gold right now anyway. It sold off from the high of around $50 recently to around $32 or so and that may be the lowest it will ever be again. And silver is more volatile and versatile than gold so as gold continues to increase silver will likely be increasing at a faster rate like at the beginning of the year.

    I can't wait for Obama care to kick in. In about a year we will all be entitled to the entitlement programs. If you can't beat them.. join em!

    "My family calls me a hoarder."

    That's one of the funniest things i heard all day (right next to the Ron Paul/Ben Bernnake exchange: '…gold is not money.. {Bernanke] Then why do banks hold it? Some people still think it money. I yield back the rest of my time"[Paul]'

    we should sell $10 trillion dollars of new T-bill to China. and then deny the payment just like Argentina did back in 1990. convert the currency to gold. we would be rich since US has the most gold reserve in Fort Knox. Guys you will recognize your smart investment in gold coins.

    Obama for 2012! Putting another Republican will be disastrous for the economy.

    George W. Bush ruined our economy and our financial status. We are so deep in debt, we may never climb out of it. It's time to start collecting revenue from the top 2% of all taxpayers so that we can start funding our expenditures.

    Obama for 2012. Democrats in both Houses of Congress. God bless the USA.

    You are total fool and exactly what is wrong with this country. You must be on food stamps, welfare and any other handout you can get. That is what the Democrats depend on…the government will take care of you…yeah right.

    Hooray for Obamanomics and Keynesianism (aka Bernankeism)!!!!

    More than 4 trillion dollars added to the national debt so far in this administration and Obamacare and QE3 are soon to come. Not to mention the ever increasing size of the unfunded liabilities of those wonderful inventions: Medicare, Medicaid and Social Security. Governments are always the solutions to our problems. They understand our problems better than anyone else. Why not? They created them.

    All Republic-rats are the same – they like to argue with each other about this or that and make promises to voters about this or that but it is all senseless theatrical nonsense – all they really care about (at least the ones with the most power and influence) is their own political power or they wouldn't be politicians.

    Back to coin talk here. For what it's worth, I sent in three Yosemite 2010 P ATB's to PCGS. They all looked flawless to the naked eye. Two graded SP70 and one SP69. I am not a dealer nor someone who could even distinguish an MS70 from an MS69 coin. Maybe I've been lucky, but the 2010 P ATB's I've gotten from the Mint are fantastic.

    And DemocRATS don't? Take your stupid comments to Move-On.org. This is about numismatics!

    the 4 ATB P coins I've got so far all look great also – I don't know if I've just been lucky or haven't been unlucky – yet. I hope my MH coin is a good one also so I'll have a complete set of nice problem-free 2010 ATB P coins to go with my 2010 ATB PCGS MS68 PL/DMPL coins I got from APMEX.

    Then I'll have to decide if I will continue on to 2011 with these coins – I'm not sure yet.

    "Gold and silver will fall again in the next two weeks when our government works out the debt limit issue. Shorting PMs is the way to go. On the less than 10% that this doesn't happen, gold and silver will double overnight."

    Hey pinhead, where do you come up with this junk? Did you see the $2 spike in plata today??

    guys would you have a little bit long term view on the prices of gold and silver. after our great central bank chairman's QE5 next year your silver and gold would have triple. after our great president Obama's re-election, gold and silver will jump 50% in one day. after our great life-time leader Obama (constitution changes at 2015 for life-term presidency) your silver and gold will be priceless.

    Who is running that goat-rope excuse for an operation is a good question.. They are so dysfunctional its almost funny…
    There really isn't anyone in charge of anything far as I can tell.. One big committee with no leadership or decision-making body. Almost like the government… OH WAIT!! sheesh.. sorry.. It is the government. Nevermind.
