On Tuesday, Feb. 26, 2013, the third 2012-P America the Beautiful Five Ounce Silver Uncirculated Coin sold out.
No longer available is the numismatic coin depicting Denali National Park in Alaska. Launched on Nov. 5, 2012 at a debuting price of $204.95, sales for the 2012-P Denali Five Ounce Silver Uncirculated Coin totaled 14,552 as of Feb. 25. It jumped 721 during the previous seven days while priced at $229.95.
[Update Note: Sales for the Denali silver coin increased 673 to 15,225 between February 25 and March 4. The U.S. Mint did not report any new sales in the following week, which means the final unaudited Denali total remains 15,225.]
The ATB five ounce series has caught collectors’ attention as a result of recent sellouts. A week ago the 2012-P Acadia National Park Five Ounce Silver Uncirculated Coin was pulled from U.S. Mint store shelves. Before it, the silver coin honoring Hawai’i Volcanoes National Park went off sale in mid-January.

As the figures above are current to Monday and the 2012-P Denali coin sold out on Tuesday, its tally will increase a bit in next week’s U.S. Mint sales report. So far, it has the lowest mintage of any ATB five ounce coin.
To date, the three sellouts have occurred close to the 15,000 marker, which is well below the 25,000 mintage levels published when they launched.
The U.S. Mint has held off on announcing when the 2013-dated coins will debut as it decides on mintages. The Mint has already announced their higher pricing at $244.95 each.
