Original stated mintages for each of the five ounce coins were 25,000, but collector demand is an overriding factor controlling production. It would appear the U.S. Mint produced 15,000 of the Hawaii silver coin, and that could also be the case for the three other issues with sales below the level. As for the first released in 2012, the El Yunque silver coin above 16,000 in sales may have enjoyed a stronger production level at the time.
