Visitors to the United States Mint website will find that the 2011-P Gettysburg National Military Park Five Ounce Silver Uncirculated Coin is now listed as sold out.
The 99.9% pure silver coin with a 3.0 inch diameter was added to the "No Longer Available" section of the U.S. Mint’s website earlier this week.
It was the first of the 2011-dated America the Beautiful Five Ounce Silver Uncirculated Coins released last year, on September 22, 2011. The four other five ounce collector coins remain available, although the U.S. Mint has already indicated through its "Last Chance Sale" that those would go off sale on December 31, 2012 at 12:00 noon ET.
First issued at a price of $279.95, volatile silver prices resulted in a several price adjustments for the coin — first down to $229.95, then lower to $204.95 and then increased back to $229.95. That is where the price stood at the time of its sellout, and what the other coins are listed for today.
