The U.S. Mint has received sufficient orders to record a sellout of
the Uncirculated 2014-P Great Smoky Mountains National Park 5-ounce
silver quarter dollar.
The Mint’s website indicated May 28 that the
coin was sold out and no longer available. The Mint offered a maximum
25,000 coins, at $154.95 each.
Sales of the 5-ounce silver Uncirculated 2014-P Shenandoah National
Park quarter dollar are also inching toward exhausting the maximum
25,000 mintage. Sales through May 25 reached 21,297.
The 5-ounce, .999 fine silver coins are 3-inch numismatic versions
of the 24.3-millimeter quarter dollars issued in copper-nickel clad
and .900 fine silver versions under the America the Beautiful Quarters Program.
The 5-ounce coins bear the P Mint mark of the Philadelphia Mint
where the coins are struck. The coins are sold by the U.S. Mint
directly to the public at a set price that is subject to change weekly.
The Philadelphia Mint also strikes a 3-inch, 5-ounce silver bullion
version (with no Mint mark) that is sold through authorized purchasers
for resale to the secondary market.
Pricing to the authorized purchasers is subject to change daily and
is based on the spot price of the metal per troy ounce on a given day
plus a small premium, which is currently $9.75 per coin.
Maximum mintages are subject to change on each bullion issue at the
discretion of the U.S. Mint.
Through May 28, the Mint has recorded sales of 27,000 of the Great
Smoky Mountains National Park 5-ounce silver bullion coin and 19,100
of the Shenandoah National Park bullion coin.
