The U.S. Mint has set an initial order limit of one per household
for the Uncirculated 2010-P Hot Springs National Park 5-ounce silver
bullion coin, which goes on sale at noon April 28.
Orders will be limited to one coin per household for the first
week of sales. At the end of one week, U.S. Mint officials will
re-evaluate this limit and either extend, adjust or remove it.
The opening price of the coin is $279.95 but, as is the policy
with all coins produced in precious metals, is subject to change.
The total number of Hot Springs National Park coins available is 27,000.
The coin is the first numismatic version of the 3-inch, 5-ounce
coin issued under the America the Beautiful coin program. The coin
bears on the obverse the P Mint mark of the Philadelphia Mint where
the coins were struck.
Each coin’s obverse and reverse has been subjected to a
post-strike treatment that produces a finish unlike the bullion
version, which bears no Mint mark and receives no post-strike treatment.
Later 2010-dated coins will honor Yellowstone National Park
(Wyoming), Yosemite National Park (California), Grand Canyon National
Park (Arizona) and Mount Hood National Forest (Oregon).
