U.S. Marine Corps commem sellout official

It’s official: the 2005 Marine Corps 230th Anniversary silver dollar is sold out.

Final sales figures will be shared by the U.S. Mint at a later date, but the total is around 370,000 proof and 130,000 uncirculated examples.  The maximum mintage for the commemorative is 600,000. The commemorative was available in proof and uncirculated versions, as well as with the American Legacy Collection and Coin & Stamp sets.

After selling 200,000 in the first days of issue, the commemorative, which was released July 20, continued to fly off the Mint’s shelves.

On Sept. 8, the American Legacy Collection sold out. In late August, the Mint limited sales of the American Legacy Collection to 50,000 in order to free up more individual proof coins for sale. Originally, the production limit for this set was set at 100,000.

A coin and stamp set, also limited to 50,000, included an uncirculated coin and also sold out previously.
