Officially introduced last Thursday, these coins actually started entering circulation earlier in the month.

  5. US Mint Bullion Sales Soar in June; Mixed in First Half of 2015 – Demand surged in June for United States Mint bullion coins with sales the highest since 2015-dated issues launched in January, and they hurdled year-ago levels. The sharp gains were realized in a backdrop of falling precious metals prices with gold and silver posting losses not only for the month but also for second quarter and first half of 2015.

It sure would be nice if the Mint would lower the price on the 5oz ATB collector coins. But they know if you have been collecting the series , your not likely to stop halfway through it… Oh well, they got me…

Jo. You’re right. They got me too. Only instead of buying two of each I get one of each.

David July 6, 2015 at 6:37 am

You are both correct. It also seems like the bullion versions are going hot and heavy since they are about $50 less per coin. Its still a good series to collect. I figure 40 million silver eagles versus 20 thousand ATB 5 oz. They are also better to look at than a 5 oz generic bar also.

Actually a bargain now compared to the Arkansas and other first year when silver was higher.

Jp July 6, 2015 at 6:08 pm

Boz, those first years were a royal rip off for sure. But I guess when collecting you have to pay the higher price in hopes some day you will benefit from it later. I guess I’m still miffed how the Mint yanked away last years subscription price. A little bit smaller mark up would be justified. I should just shut my trap and fork over the cash if I want those. So I will!
