2012 Acadia National Park Five Ounce Silver Coin

Demand is stronger for the bullion and collector version of the 2012 Acadia National Park Five Ounce Silver Coin

Investors and collectors appear fond of 2012 Acadia National Park Five Ounce Silver Coins, the thirteenth issued within the America the Beautiful Five Ounce Silver Coin series.

Both investment-grade and collectible silver coins are moving faster with sales of Acadia bullion coins higher and Acadia uncirculated coins starting stronger than the prior 2012-dated issues.

Collectible 2012-P Acadia National Park Five Ounce Silver Uncirculated Coins were just released Monday, August 13, 2012. United States Mint sales figures have their one-week total at 6,552. In contrast, debut unit sales for the immediate previous 2012-P Chaco Culture uncirculated coin were 6,365 and the 2012-P El Yunque uncirculated coin were 6,514.

As for the Acadia bullion coin that launched on July 30, 2012, sales on Monday jumped another 4,100 for a new total of 15,100. That is well above the companion 2012 Chaco Culture bullion coin at 8,500 and the 2012 El Yunque bullion coin at 13,800.

For reference, the following table offers current sales figures for the bullion and uncirculated silver coins currently available from the U.S. Mint.

Rec my Acadia last week. The designs keep getting better. I am looking forward to the Volcanoes!

The Hawaii 5oz ATB coins will be one of the most popular in the series, I believe. As much as I loath any “colorization” of coins, these might actually look cool in that format.
