in Silver Coins, US Mint Sales

Sales of bullion America the Beautiful Five Ounce Silver Coins intended for investors have been quiet for a couple of weeks now but sales of uncirculated America the Beautiful Five Ounce Silver Coins for collectors have been rushing forward.

2013-P Fort McHenry 5 Oz Silver Uncirculated Coin

The 2013-P Fort McHenry Five Ounce Silver Uncirculated Coin is the most recent to sell out in the series of bullion and collector America the Beautiful Five Ounce Silver Coins

As of Dec. 9, 2013, two of this year’s five bullion coins continue to be sold by the United States Mint while just one of this year’s five uncirculated coins is available, and its sellout is likely only days away. The coins that have not sold out include:

  • 2013 Perry’s Victory 5 Oz Silver Bullion Coin with sales at 27,100 of 30,000
  • 2013 Great Basin 5 Oz Silver Bullion Coin with sales at 28,600 of 30,000
  • 2013-P Mount Rushmore 5 Oz Silver Uncirculated Coin with sales at 23,477 of 25,000

Bullion sales updates are published by the United States Mint once every business day. The Mint last reported sales increases to its five ounce bullion coins on Nov. 22.

Coin News Extra Update: On Wednesday, Nov. 11, 2013, sellouts occurred for the remaining two five ounce bullion coins. Perry’s Victory coin went up 2,900 to the max 30,000 and the Great Basin coin went up 1,400 to the max 30,000. Then on Thursday, Nov. 2013, the final collector five ounce coin, the one honoring Mount Rushmore, sold out. Its latest sales will not be known until next Monday.

The Mint reports sales of its collector uncirculated coins weekly with the 2013-P Fort McHenry coin selling out last Tuesday, Dec. 4. Since a week ago and as of Sunday, Dec. 8, sales of the final 2013-P Mount Rushmore uncirculated coins jumped 2,342, leaving 1,523 left — assuming that the Mint actually produced 25,000 of them. That is the assumption here because sellouts happened for the 2013-P collector coins before their announced 25,000 mintages were reached, meaning the Mint did not actually make as many as it had originally allocated.

Here is a table of sales for the bullion and uncirculated silver coins. Those with a "*" have sold out.

Collector uncirculated five ounce silver coins have a "P" mint mark and may be ordered directly from the U.S. Mint through its website at The price for the remaining Mount Rushmore coin is $154.95 each.

Bullion five ounce silver coins for investors do not have a mint mark and sell through the Mint’s network of dealers for a bit over their melt value.

Both series of coins are struck using one press at the Philadelphia Mint.
