There’s a good chance the 2014 National Baseball Hall of Fame Silver Commemorative Coins could sell out this week, based on the latest sales figures from the United States Mint.
The silver coins would join the $5 gold commemoratives which officially sold out one week ago. Plenty of 50-cent clad coins are available. The series of coins launched on March 27 and celebrate the diamond anniversary of the National Baseball Hall of Fame.
New sales figures as of 9:30 a.m. today, April 7, have the Baseball Silver Commemorative Coins at 366,340, or 33,600 shy of the maximum 400,000. Demand remains strong with 137,815 more sold since a week ago, suggesting the silver coins could become unavailable very soon. There’s no chance they will not sell out.
Sales of the 50-cent clad coins went up 52,621 for a new total of 164,001, leaving 585,999 left from the higher 750,000 mintage.
