The Uncirculated 2010-P collector version of the Hot Springs
National Park 5-ounce silver bullion coin, first in the America the
Beautiful program, will be offered for sale by the U.S. Mint directly
to customers starting April 28.
The release date for the .999 fine silver coin appears on the U.S.
Mint’s products schedule at its website, www.usmint.gov.
No other information, including price or customer order limits,
was available at the Mint website. An April 7 search of the Federal
Register, where pricing for U.S. Mint products is also published, also
yielded no information.
The Uncirculated versions of the 2010 America the Beautiful
5-ounce silver bullion coins will be struck on the same planchets and
press as the standard bullion coins, but will bear a distinctive
finish and the P Mint mark of the Philadelphia Mint (in the same
location as on regular size America the Beautiful quarter dollars).
The bullion versions bear no Mint mark.
Coin World will publish pricing and order limit information
as it becomes available. ■
