The third 2011 America the Beautiful 5-ounce silver bullion coin has hit the market, along with two more uncirculated collector coins.
Authorized Purchasers began ordering the Olympic National Park bullion coin on May 23. In little more than two days, 78,700 of the initial 126,700 mintage were purchased by the APs.
“Some APs took all of their allocation and some only took a portion,” reported U.S. Mint Public Affairs Director Tom Jurkowsky on May 25.
They had until May 27 to place their orders per their allocation. After that, the coins would be made available to other AP’s.
Unlike sales of the 2010 5-ounce silver bullion coins, no restrictions have been placed on the APs concerning the sale price or quantity of coins it makes available to customers.
The first two 2011 bullion coins that honored Gettysburg National Military Park and Glacier National Park sold out May 16. Mintage was 126,700 each.
As for the 2010 5-ounce silver bullion ATB coins that are available from the U.S. Mint, the Hot Springs coin has sold out. On May 22, the U.S. Mint reported that it had sold 24,626 of the uncirculated coin honoring Yellowstone National Park. That left 2,374 still available to collectors at a price of $279.95.
The Mint expected to offer the Yosemite National Park uncirculated ATB 5-ounce silver coin for sale on June 9.
