America the Beautiful Five Ounce Silver Coin Mintages


Grand CanyonWhen the new series of five ounce silver coins was first released, collector interest was high. A great deal of the excitement was generated by the surprising low mintages for the 2010-dated coins. Despite initial indications that as many as 100,000 of each coin would be struck, the US Mint announced significantly lower production levels just ahead of the bullion coin release.

There were 33,000 bullion coins and 27,000 numismatic coins for each of the 2010 America the Beautiful Silver Bullion Coins released.

When the first of the 2011-dated coins were released, initial quantities minted were significantly higher. The US Mint indicated production of at least 126,700 bullion coins for each design.

Following this year of higher production and lower demand, the US Mint reduced mintages, setting some surprising lows for 2012-dated coins.

The table below displays the mintage figures for the bullion versions (no mint mark) and the numismatic versions (P mint mark) for each release of the series so far. The bullion amounts indicate the actual production. Numismatic amounts represent the last reported sales figures after the sell out.
