The first 2011 uncirculated America the Beautiful 5-ounce silver collector coin with a “P” mintmark went on sale Sept. 22. The coin honors Gettysburg National Military Park.
At press time, the price of the coin and the mintage had not yet been set.
Five 2011 uncirculated ATB coins will be issued this year, with the same designs, but different finishes, as the bullion coins that honor Gettysburg National Military Park, Glacier National Park, Olympic National Park, Vicksburg National Military Park and Chickasaw National Recreation Area.
Five 2010 uncirculated ATB 5-ounce coins were released this year. Each was priced at $279.95, with mintages at 27,000. All but the last coin released on July 28 have sold out. There are still 6,906 uncirculated Mount Hood ATB coins available from the Mint.
The numismatic coins are .999 fine silver, the same as the bullion version of the coin. They have the “P” mintmark and a finish applied through a vapor blasting technique. It is the same finish used on the Mint’s 3-inch bronze medals. It is applied after the coin is struck, not to the die.
The collector coins may be ordered online at www.usmint.gov, or by calling 1-800-USA-MINT.
