There’s a good chance the 2014 National Baseball Hall of Fame Silver Commemorative Coins could sell out this week, based on the latest sales figures from the United States Mint.
The silver coins would join the $5 gold commemoratives which officially sold out one week ago. Plenty of 50-cent clad coins are available. The series of coins launched on March 27 and celebrate the diamond anniversary of the National Baseball Hall of Fame.
New sales figures as of 9:30 a.m. today, April 7, have the Baseball Silver Commemorative Coins at 366,340, or 33,600 shy of the maximum 400,000. Demand remains strong with 137,815 more sold since a week ago, suggesting the silver coins could become unavailable very soon. There’s no chance they will not sell out.
Sales of the 50-cent clad coins went up 52,621 for a new total of 164,001, leaving 585,999 left from the higher 750,000 mintage.

If you don’t have a Silver one or want to pick up an extra Silver Coin do not wait to do it.
Just picked up 2 uncirculated baseball one $ commemoratives
Just received one of their “free” bags. They shipped it separately and raped me for $4.95 S&H charges. The POS, isn’t even worth that and I’m appalled that it’s MADE IN VIETNAM! THEY SHOULD BE ASHAMED!!
I WANT MY $$$ BACK!!!!
The coins are a real collectable,but the surcharges I believe are what might be a donation-which might be tax deductable,and if they are,what if a person does not want to donate to that particuloar organization?. That would put those people out of the opportunity of purchasing a certain commemorative coin. I purchased two sets of these coins and cant wait to get them,thats all I got-PS- the reusable bag was made in the NAM, come on U.S. Mint,no wonder you give them away!
I had 2 proofs & 2 uncirculated silver coins. Just picked up 2 more of each. These are going to be special, folks. They will be gone by tomorrow by 5:00 p.m. which is the time the Mint updates the sales for the public to see.
Ron, You will not be charged another shipping for the coins. You will only be charged shipping once. Not sure why they sent the bags early, but it costs you nothing extra.
“Just received one of their “free” bags. They shipped it separately and raped me for $4.95 S&H charges.”
Ron lighten up a little. The shipping charges are for your complete order, not just the bag. You won’t be charged again when your coins ship. It is getting a little old seeing people rip the mint for giving you a free bag, regardless of where it is made. On top of that – you had the chance to cancel the bag off your order and didn’t bother doing that either.
EVERYTHING that the U.S. Mint makes should say MADE IN AMERICA, Including the bag… It’s an embarrassment to get something from OUR mint here in AMERICA and it should say MADE IN VIETNAM OR WHEREVER. Ron, You’re 100% correct on that point. It’s disgusting. Everyone that orders from the U.S. Mint SHOULD complain about that.
Great! The us mint finally mail out my gold proof and silver proof. Can’t want to see them. Woohoo
With only 90% gold and 90% silver people are paying $1,000 plus for 1 of them. I wouldn’t pay $100 for the gold proof. It’s either .9999 for me or NUTTIN.. Watch out for carbon/copper spots down the road folks.. Store them well.
What’s next? Having China minting our coins for us?
My order was received at 1:53pm on the first day. The coins came UPS today. They look much better in hand. Good point on storing them Joe #2.
I got my silver proof today. And the gold proof is on its way.
Mint sent me some proof sets, charged me the shipping. A couple of days later, got some more proof sets, no shipping charge, a couple of more days later, got the rest of the proof sets, charged shipping again. They will do what they want. At least I didn’t have to deal with getting a bag from over there.

What a bunch of racist comments from some of you people on here about other countries, WOW. In case you haven’t noticed America is not the country it once was, it is no longer the land of the free and the home of the brave, it is the land of the rich and greedy and putting there nose in every one’s business. I served this country for 20 years and it is no longer a place to brag about, I cannot wait to retire and get out of here. Knowing some of you gung ho people out there you will… Read more »
Steve, I am over 50, and proud of being an AMERICAN. I tend to agree with the other folks although I understand the money side of it. I’d bet you all felt pretty embarrased when you casted your ballot in the last presidential elections and found out there was a spanish version, I know I did. I arrived to this country with my father’s G-4 diplomatic visa in 1976 from a spanish speaking country. I have been married to a wonderful american woman for 33 years now, have 2 american kids, proudly got my degree from an american university, and… Read more »
Steve? Racist comments? I see no racists comments on here from anyone. I see personal opinions. That’s what these boards are about. You’re not getting the point. I’m 55. Born here in Brooklyn New york and damn proud of it. The point i’m trying to make is The United States Mint should be THE UNITED STATES MINT. PERIOD. We should be damn proud of everything that should come out of OUR mint.EVERYTHING should say from coins to misc. products that the U.S. Mint puts out from OUR mint ( made in America… made in the United States.) You don’t put… Read more »
I received my “bag” today, my 2014 Proof set and my Proof Clad .50 HOF coin. The proof set is without a doubt, the fines I’ve ever seen. As far as I’m concerned, all 18 coins are flawless. The Proof HOF .50 clad coin also looks flawless and is a beautiful work of art. Hand in there, you will all be pleasantly surprised when yours arrives.
I agree with “thePhelps”. Lighten up! The “Low Information Collectors” out there don’t pay attention to what they are ordering or don’t bother to gather all the facts. Then they spout off at the mouth and make a lot of waves over nothing. I admit that the Mint is not perfect, but for the most part their hands-are-tied by the laws that were passed by our “illustrious” Congress. If you don’t want “your” money going to a particular organization that is being funded by the purchase of the coin, then don’t buy it. This is America and you are free… Read more »
I purchased two silver proof coins and was in the virtual waiting room the first day it went up for sale for 2 hours waiting to place my order. I still have not received my two coins yet but the mint shows they are in stock and reserved. I did get the bag a few weeks back. I can’t wait to see these coins in hand.
The thing I did not appreciate was due to cost cuts they only sent out 1/3 of the notices by mail ! That would have been fine except they did not send an e-mail notification either and in the past the notices were to the point they were almost aggravating ( if your truly an avid collector there’s no such thing as to much information about a coin ! ) the fact that I make purchases all the time ( every modern commemorative they have made + any other special coins, silver proof sets, proof eagles, etc. ) and I… Read more »
