The 2010 Yosemite silver 5-ounce uncirculated collector coin is not sold out. The waiting list posting on the Mint’s website was an error. The Mint has 1,662 of the coins left, meaning that 25,338 have been sold.
Buyers are pushing the 2010 Grand Canyon total toward the 27,000 sellout point, but at 20,834, there are probably a few more weeks to go before we reach the goal line at the 1,534-coin weekly sales rate of the last few days.
The 2011 bullion coin 5-ounce coins definitely are selling less well than they had been. There is no change this week to the Olympic total of 80,700 and the Vicksburg number moved up by just 2,800 to reach 21,800. What’s more, the Chickasaw coin goes on sale July 18. That will make three of the five designs available simultaneously. Of course, the point of a bullion coin is not to sell out but to provide an always available convenient method of owning silver. Perhaps the 2011 coins are achieving that.
