2010 Yosemite National Park 5 Ounce Silver Uncirculated Coin

Tomorrow, June 9, 2011 at 12:00 Noon ET, the United States Mint will begin sales of the 2010-P Yosemite National Park Five Ounce Silver Uncirculated Coin. This continues the steady release of the numismatic versions of the America the Beautiful Silver Coins.

The first issue featuring Hot Springs was released on April 28 and reached a sell out (waiting list) on May 13. The next issue featuring Yellowstone National Park was released on May 17 and sold out (without a waiting list) on June 1. The total availability period for each product was 15 days.

The Yosemite coin features a view of the granite rock formation known as El Capitan, which rises more than 3,000 feet above the valley floor. This was designed by Joseph Menna and sculpted by Phebe Hemphill. The obverse of the coin features the restored 1932 portrait of George Washington designed by John Flanagan.

Each coin contains 5 troy ounces of .999 fine silver and has a diameter of 3 inches. This numismatic release carries the "P" mint mark and has a special finish created through a vapor blasting technique applied after striking.

Details of the offering match those of the previous two releases. There is a total mintage of 27,000 units. Pricing will be $279.95, with an ordering limit of one per household imposed.

The US Mint does caution that the pricing is subject to change, but the same price level has been used consistently across a wide range of silver market prices. When the Hot Springs coin went on sale silver was above $48 per ounce, and when Yellowstone was first offered, silver was around $34.

It seems fairly likely that the 2010-dated numismatic America the Beautiful Five Ounce Silver Coins will continue to sell out. Collectors seem to be motivated by the unique nature of the offering and the limited 27,000 mintage.

I predict this one will last long enough the Mint might actually raise the household order limit before it's gone. I think it will acheive the sellout, but not in the two-week timeframe of the first two.

Yosemite National Park is hands down the most beautiful place in the United States. Anyone that thinks that this will not sell out in record time is trying to fool the rest of us.

If you were only going to buy one, this is it !!

Don't snooze believing that he price of silver will be decreasing anytime soon. This same mind set kept The Mary Todd Lincoln out of your hand.

These will sell out in two or three weeks. There is a committed collector base and only 27 large to go 'round. I plan to be in for the first five but I have my doubts the 2011's will sell more than 60 large for each coin. These coins are not cheap for silver and economy not that great.
I am wait and see on the 2011's. Sure ain't gonna jump in right away with 100 large limit scheduled per coin.

"Yosemite National Park is hands down the most beautiful place in the United States."

It's nice to be sure, but it doesn't touch Alaska for beauty. Denali National Park is awesome and has the tallest mountain from base (almost sea level) to peak (at over 20K feet) in the world. Everest sits on the base of the Tibetan plateau, which is already at 17K, and is not even close in shear rise. Toss in a lot of caribou, moose, bears and wolves, rivers, forests, etc. and there is nothing like it on the planet earth.

That said, I'm agree the Yosemite coin will have a lower mintage and be more valuable from that standpoint.

You'd really have to see them in hand. I have 2 Grand Canyons...one graded PCGS MS69 and the other PCGS MS68DMPL. I would take the 68DMPL any day over the MS69. If you held the two coins in front of someone and hide the grades, 10 out of 10 people would say the 68DMPL looks better than the MS69.

Seeing how the dealer will not be able to pick out the high grade silver eagles out of the monster boxes the market is going to be flooded with a large amount of low graded silver eagles from s/f mint.The last monster unopened box i got only had about 100 silver eagle eagles in it that i felt were good enough to be graded. So anything less than ms69 will not hold up in the market,regaurdless of the s/f label from NGC.

I just saw this article on CoinNews. Australia will be issuing a 5 ounce silver coin for $461.18 (US). The US ATB P 5 ounce coins are cheap, compared to the Aussie coin. Here come the foreign collectors!

-------------------

The Perth Mint on June 7 released a new 2011 Australian Koala 5 Oz Silver Proof Coin for collectors, its largest product in the popular koala coin series and the first issue in this size. The silver coin is currently listed for a price of $431.82 (AUS), or $461.18 (US).

IMO, the 5 0z ATB looks much nicer than the Australia 5 oz; not to even mention it's way cheaper.

Guess I'll rather buy 3 5oz ATB then 2 5oz Australia pucks.

The smarter investment would be to buy the 2011 ATB bullion coins at prices closer to spot sliver. The ATB P coins are for collectors. BTW: There are much better investments than big chunks of silver...that train has left the station.

Talking about the 5oz Koala 2011 from Australia. Only 5000 were minted and they are proof! Here is the interesting thing: only 300 are available for sale in Australia - US buyers not welcomer this one at the Perth mint! The rest of it i.e. 4700 coins were bought by the New York Mint/Gov. Mint entities in the US. They had the coins graded by NGC of which approx. 1700 were graded PF70 and the rest PF69. They are selling the PF69 right now at $799.00 each! Sickening!

I'll finish the 2010 set, but am still adopting a "wait and see" for the 2011's. A little bit of information from the Mint would be nice. How many do they plan to offer, and at what price? It seems unlikely they would keep the price at $279.95, but if spot silver stays where it's at for now maybe they will.

What's the big deal about the Hot Springs coin? It's mostly just a rendition of a government building (park hdqtrs) on a coins. Yes, the building has a very pretty ornamented art deco door and there's a little burble of spring water in the foreground. As for transfering the likeness of a government building to a coin, yeah, they did a good job. Did Teddy Roosevelt take a sitz bath somewhere in that building?

The Hot Springs is the only ATB coin that doesn't have variations of mountains and animals on it.
That's why it is my favorite.
I do like the "art deco" style too.

I'm in ofr one of all of the numismatic ATBs. I'm skipping the gold and platinum offerings.

I have this hobby for two purposes:

1) As an investment, and
2) as one interested in coins.

Purchasing collectible US Mint coins is a means of addressing both of these purposes. The bullion aspect of the purchase meets my investment requirement. Additionally, I am willing to pay a premium for numismatic enjoyment (higher theoretical quality and uniqueness).

That's my story anyway...

As the biggest coins ever made by the US mint with interesting designs and significant precious metal content they are just cool to hold and behold.

And when the old fogey collectors discover them and realize they can see them without a magnifying glass they will skyrocket in value! (HA!)

I like the 2010 and 2011 bullion ATB coins too. If you buy the 2011 bullions at the right spot price, the average of P and bullions is much better. The american coins beat the canadian and sustralian 5 ounce by several hundred dollars apiece.

They have to release two more of the 2010 ATBs and I would think they would release the five 2011 also within this year. So seven more to go in about 6 months - or probably one every three to four weeks. OUCH!

The fact that ordering was so quick today probably represents significantly reduced demand for ATB P's and not a system upgrade of the US Mint website. Just like the First Spouse series, a very limited and shrinking number of people are interested in acquiring a full set of these.

I don't agree with the people here saying sales of Yosemite are going to be slower than the first two. If there was going to be a big sales slowdown, I think it would have happened with Yellowstone. It's clear there is a built-in base of support for the 2010 set. We might see a sales slowdown for the 2011s, though some of the designs for 2011 are really great (I love Gettysburg, Vicksburg, and Chickasaw) and may at least maintain the current pace of buying if not increase it. Plus we might finally see price reductions for the 2011s.

The slowdown problems on the Mint's website for this release actually lasted a little longer than Yellowstone's problems did, so I think sales are probably about the same as the first two coins.

In other news, my platinum eagle finally arrived (though I had to sell some of my silver stash to afford it). Wow, what a beaut this one is. I would never have bought it without this blog, thanks Michael.

it is very hard to get a set of 5 pc 2010p collector's series 5 oz silver coins. because the sales of these coins were scatter around collectors.

++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++

I think that is incorrect. I believe that the same people are buying them but that interest is now decreasing.

Yeah, I sure hope silver reaches the $100+ per ounce some keep preaching it will, just so I can sell these profitably!

I'll finish what I started with the 2010 set, but I seriously doubt I will pursue the 2011's or beyond. I'll keep an eye on their sales figures though, and if it looks like more low-mintage First Spouse-type situations brewing, I will most likely buy some of the later ones too.

The only people buying the Yosemite are the ones already in HS and YS; so yes dun think there's new demand out there for this 5 ozers..... they most likely won't sell for much above bullion once people realize the real lack of demand on these.

True, except for older numismatic pieces. Fake Morgans and $2.50 Gold Eagles are everywhere. But I like the modern stuff in the original packaging.

The only argument I can make for grading them is the serious potential for fakes from China to appear a few years from now. Did you see their new stealth fighter?! Can someone say industrial espionage?! Having them graded and slabbed will guarantee authenticity to go along with the original packaging. This is good for those who pass it along to their children or purchase them as investments to cash in on years from now.

A reent article by JPMorgan said that there will be a lot of demand on US treasury from emerging market since they have ~1T reserve last year. These reserves have no where to go but to buy AAA treasury bond. So relax, the silver price is going to go up since we are going to accumulate more debt to help the global economy.

Order number does not necessarily indicate the number of Yosemite coins sold.

If the difference in order numbers from 12 noon today to the current time was 50,000, it could be that 2 Yosemite coins were sold and 49,998 2011 proof sets were sold.

Each order gets a unique number, regardless if the order includes a Yosemite coin.

I started ordering at 12P and I got two in 20 minutes (15 for the first, 5 for the second). I think I will wait a half hour next time I order based of Yellowstone & this order.

It maybe a little late but somebody said that they had problems shipping to a different address (other than billing). I didn't have any issues, with this. I sent one to my condo’s office & one to my condo unit.

This is a new strategy for me because the last two times I sent one to my PO Box and one to the physical address. The coin sent to my physical address came UPS the other coin sent to my PO Box arrived 4-5 days later via USPS First Class. Also the coin mailed via USPS was shipped 2 days after the UPS coin in both cases. If you want fast delivery send it to a physical address.

I think long term the 2010-P's will be very profitable. AS someone said earlier, it took the UHR coin a year or two to achieve high premiums. Think about it..most people don't even know about the ATB quarters(you never see them in circulation) much less the 5 oz versions. Once the public becomes aware of these(and who knows when that will be...but eventually they will) then these low mintage 2010 ATB 5 oz coins (both the 33,000 bullion and 27,000 "P" coins) will become hot items! Get them at these prices while you can!

There are a lot of recent low mintage Gold Eagles (fractional proofs). Add in fractional Gold Buffalos, 1 oz Platinum Eagles and the FS coins. They all have mint marks and lower mintages than 27K.

If silver gets too high and the collector base falls, future years may also have low mintages. We'll have to wait and see.

After 2010 I will only keep the designs that I like unless the mintages drop like a rock later.

You can't compare low-mintage gold with low-mintage silver collector coins. They are like apples and oranges. Gold coins always sell in smaller numbers because they cost a lot more. For silver coins, the 2010 collector and bullion ATB's are very low mintage and will do well. Other than the 1995-W silver eagle and the 2008 reverse of 2007 silver eagle, these are the lowest mintage modern silver coins, as far as I know. You will regret not getting them years down the road. Remember there will be new ATB collectors later on who will want to get them, driving prices higher. Please stop worrying about the price of silver esp. if you collect the numismatic ATB's. Rising silver (over time) is just a bonus.

One of the reasons why the UHR coins are hot is because of foreign investors/collectors wanting this one-of-a-kind coin. Overseas demand for this coin seriously, is high. The nice mahogany box helps market its appeal as well.

There was never any one day sellout of any of the two P coins. They have all been remarkably consistent, selling out in the 2-3 week range. The only one-day sellout was with the original shipment of bullion coins, on APMEX, due to the horrible distribution situation. Demand for the numismatic coins has been very consistent, and from what other posters are saying based on their order numbers, the Yosemite sales are going to be exactly the same as the Yellowstone and Hot Springs sales.

I'm not sure why there are so many people suddenly trying to "talk down" these coins, I don't remember these kinds of responses for the last two offerings.

In my opinion the collector versions of the ATB do not even compare with the bullion version! The vapor blasting makes the coin look fake like it’s a piece of galvanized steel. The bullion version looks like silver and has much better aesthetic appeal. Yes the ATB P’s have a lower mintage, but honestly do they really look as good as the bullion versions….? With the P’s not as appealing it makes it more difficult to pay the extra premium for a vapor blasted piece of galvanized or zinc plated steel.

I think the P versions look fine. At least their finish seems to be consistent, unlike the bullion coins. Some look like proofs, while of those some look even MORE proof-like than others. Still others don't look like proofs at all. Too much variation there.

I still wish the Mint would mess up and use the P dies on some bullion versions, or use the bullion dies without the P on the "vapor-blasted" coins. That would give us something exciting to hunt for.

The burnished gold eagles already have premiums. The sleepers are the 1/2 ounce bullion versions.

Any classic unique silver commemorative with mintages at 27k or less are worth typically 100X issue price and typically 100X silver content if in descent shape. Granted these are close to 70 years old on average, I know the ATB's will be winners with 27k mintages, just a matter of how much.

Don't make me puke, please. It's called hard work. People should try it. Then you can invest in one.

I'd love a Ferrari. Maybe there should be a lottery to to give some of the cars for free.

Commie.

Already half the population pays no federal income tax, and many of those get government checks. Which is why our country is bankrupt. The gravy train is about over.

By the way, lottery is the biggest government rip-off of poor people. Did you hear Bill Gates ever bought a lottery ticket? Government took the poor people's money and give only about 30% back.

The way we'll get social justice is for everyone to work and not have some people supporting others.

That was just a test. Only five of you guys remotely qualified to join the tea party. I am disappointed. I will not be part of the blog anymore.

Please no more politics. Stay on message, or go to a political blog. I am not interested in your political views. This is what happened to the letters in Numismatic News. You right wingers keep sending in letters that have nothing to do with coins. Don't ruin a good blog.

I agree.. More coin talk less political BS! Imagine treasure hunting with your Garret or Whites detector and finding a 5oz'er lol... I can't imagine anyone could ever drop one and not notice lol

There are some interesting comments on this blog!

I like these coins and I'm in until I can afford not to be. I don't want to flip, I just appreciate them for what they are, a unique modern coin offering. I will collect and pass down to my son. If they gain in value, great. So much the better! If not they are still a valuable part of my collection.

This is what coin collecting is about. I showed my 10 year old son and his friend the HS-P coin the day it arrived. They examined it intently for a good while and still talk about today. That initial impression was priceless!

You clearly are an immature man. You have a mind of a 7 year old. Grow up.

I pity you and your loved ones.

The IRS should let us deduct tax on the premiums we paid to the Mint.

I just checked e-Bay closing prices and they have been very consistent, not dropping as some claim. All three collector issues sell for $350-400 regularly. But anyway if return on your money is what you really care about, be patient!! The coins were just released. You don't make money in coins overnight. It takes time.
