The United States Mint has reported a sellout of the authorized mintage of 25,000 Uncirculated 2014-P Great Smoky Mountains National Park 5-ounce silver quarter dollars.

Through Aug. 24, the U.S. Mint recorded the following cumulative sales for the Uncirculated 2014-P 5-ounce silver coins:

➤ Great Smoky Mountains National Park, 24,706 (no longer available).

The maximum mintage limits combined for the bullion and Uncirculated versions of the 2014 5-ounce coins are 65,000 coins per design as set by the secretary of the Treasury, according to U.S. Mint officials. Mint officials state that the 65,000 coins per design ceiling is divided between the Uncirculated coins bearing the Philadelphia Mint’s P Mint mark and the bullion versions which carry no Mint mark.

Despite the 65,000 coins per design limit, the Mint set production limits for the Uncirculated versions, leaving the remainder of the maximum total for bullion sales:

➤ Great Smoky Mountains National Park, 25,000 coins.

➤ Shenandoah National Park, 30,000 coins.

➤ Arches National Park, 30,000 coins.

➤ Great Sand Dunes National Park, 30,000 coins.

➤ Everglades National Park, 30,000 coins.

The Uncirculated version of the Great Smoky Mountains coins went on sale April 7; the Shenandoah coin, on May 15; and the Arches coin, on June 11. All were offered at $154.95 per coin directly to the public.

The Uncirculated Great Sand Dunes coins are scheduled for sale beginning Sept. 15, with the Uncirculated Everglades coins planned for sometime in November.
