Both the numismatic and bullion versions of the 2014
Everglades National Park 5-ounce silver quarter dollar go on
sale in early November from the United States Mint.
The bullion version is scheduled to be offered to authorized
purchasers beginning Nov. 3.
The Uncirculated numismatic version of the quarter dollar is to go
on sale to the public at noon Eastern Time Nov. 6.
Both versions are struck at the Philadelphia Mint, but only the numismatic
version bears the P Mint mark. The current price for the 2014-P
5-ounce silver coin is $154.95 and is subject to change.
The bullion version is not sold to the general public. The U.S. Mint
sells the bullion version to a series of authorized purchasers for the
closing spot price of the metal on a given day, plus a premium,
currently at $9.75 per coin. The coins are then sold wholesale and
retail to dealers, collectors and investors.
The maximum mintage is 65,000 combined for both the bullion and
Uncirculated collector versions.
The coin's reverse, designed by U.S. Mint Artistic Infusion Program
Artist Joel Iskowitz and sculptured by U.S. Mint
Medallic Sculptor Joseph F. Menna, depicts an anhinga with
outstretched wings on a willow tree, with a roseate spoonbill visible
in the mid-ground.
