The latest U.S. Mint product to feature Hawai’i Volcanoes National Park is the 5 oz. silver bullion coin that went on sale Monday. Containing five ounces of 99.9% pure silver and struck to a diameter of three inches, the investment-grade bullion coin shares the same designs as found on the smaller Hawai’i Volcanoes National Park quarters.

If you do not have your S Hawaii, El Yunque, Chaco Culture or Acadia rolls yet, thats a shame. The code on the box is PL7, and folks there is a good reason. Buy multiple rolls. After a week, no rolls are appearing on EBAY. There is a reason for these not being sold, they are that spectacular. Buy your S rolls now.
PL is used to describe Proof Like. Appropriate.
