2014-P Great Smoky Mountains National Park 5 oz Silver Uncirculated Coin

Sales of the new 2014-P Great Smoky Mountains National Park 5 oz Silver Uncirculated Coin are at 85.7% of maximum

The United States Mint is on a sellout roll with its numismatic products. The Mint’s curved baseball coins in gold and silver have sold out and its latest five ounce America the Beautiful silver uncirculated coin for Great Smoky Mountains National Park is poised to join them.

Released on Monday, April 7, 2014, sales of the collectible hit 21,415 or 85.7% of the maximum 25,000 by Sunday, April 13. The start is probably the quickest of the silver coins since 2012, though it’s impossible to say for sure since its first sales reporting period is longer than issues from last year.

In any event, get one while you can if interested. It seems likely it will sell out sooner than later. The coin is priced at $154.95.

Here is how starting sales of the Great Smoky Mountains silver coin compares to others since 2012:

*Time periods for the first reported U.S. Mint sales of the 2012-dated America the Beautiful silver coins were one week or a day less than one week. Conversely, each of the 2013-dated silver coins have opening sales periods from Thursday to the following Sunday.

Sales of Bullion Version

In other coin news, sales of the bullion or investor Great Smoky Mountains National Park Five Ounce Silver Coin surged this week by 7,400 to 22,400. This bullion coin shares the same designs as the silver uncirculated coin discussed above. Its major differences are its brilliant finish and the lack of the Philadelphia Mint’s "P" mint mark.

The U.S. Mint does not sell these coins directly to the public like its collectible products. They are distributed through a network of dealers and typically sell for a few percentage points above the melt value of their five ounces of 99.9% pure silver. The bureau has not officially stated how many of them it will sell.

Wow, it sold out within 15 Days ?
there are 3 reasons for that fast selling:
1- Subscriptions Discount
2- Cheap!!! compare to other countries 5oz, they sell 3-5x

Yep. I think the subscription discount really made this one worth buying (I bought two).

Did US mint take order from India and China?
if yes, no wonder these coin sell so fast !
If no, how did people get so much money to buy : because April, we had to pay Income tax, property tax, ?
