The 2015-P Saratoga National Historical Park 5-ounce silver Uncirculated coin is set to go on sale to collectors at noon Eastern Time Dec. 3 priced at $149.95.

The bullion coins in the series, without Mint marks, are not sold to the public. They are sold directly through a network of authorized purchasers who buy the coins at the closing London PM spot price of silver per ounce on a given day plus a premium of $9.75 per coin.

The coins may then be resold to other customers in the marketplace.
