The U.S. Mint’s authorized purchasers can place orders for the 2013
Perry’s Victory and International Peace Memorial 5-ounce silver
bullion coins, beginning June 3.
The authorized purchasers can purchase the bullion coins for the
spot price of the metal per ounce on the London market, times 5
ounces, with an added premium of $9.75 per coin in the purchase price.
The coins may then be sold by the authorized purchasers into the
secondary market to other dealers, collectors and investors.
Unlike the Uncirculated numismatic version, which bears the P Mint
mark of the Philadelphia Mint, where both versions of the 5-ounce
silver coins are struck, the bullion versions bear no Mint mark.
On-sale dates to authorized purchasers for the remaining bullion
versions of the 5-ounce 2013 America the Beautiful quarter dollars are
June 24 for Great Basin National Park (Nevada), Aug. 26 for Fort
McHenry National Monument and Historic Shrine (Maryland), and Nov. 4
for Mount Rushmore National Memorial (South Dakota).
The Uncirculated collector 5-ounce coins currently offered by the
Mint are being sold at $179.95 each, subject to change depending on
changes in silver prices.
The Uncirculated 2013-P version of the Perry’s Victory and
International Peace Memorial coin is scheduled to be offered by the
U.S. Mint beginning at noon Eastern Daylight Time June 6.
The Uncirculated Great Basin coin is slated for a June 27 release.
As of May 30, the U.S. Mint had not announced specific release
dates for the Uncirculated 5-ounce Fort McHenry and Mount Rushmore
coins, stating only that the two coins would be offered sometime in
August and November, respectively. ■
