The United States Mint has removed ordering limits for the curved 2014 National Baseball Hall of Fame Clad Half-Dollars.
When the popular commemorative coins celebrating the diamond anniversary of the National Baseball Hall of Fame went on sale Mar. 27, the U.S. Mint had imposed household ordering limits of 50 for the gold coins and 100 for the silver and clad issues. The gold and silver coins quickly sold out, leaving only the Baseball clad half-dollars which have much higher mintages.
Ordering limits for the clad coins were lifted Wednesday, July 9, boosting weekly sales. They surged 20,472 compared to the previous gain of 4,815. Sales on the week were led by the uncirculated version and its jump of 17,070. Orders for coins now total 324,677 for 43.3% of the maximum 750,000. Sales are at 196,378 for the proof and 128,299 for the uncirculated for percentage splits of 60.5% and 39.5%.
Here are the latest sales totals for all the commemorative coins as of Sunday, July 13:
