    The national park series breaks the record for its numerous bird designs on them. UGH.

    I've made a mistake and purchased the BU versions of 4 out of the 5 Pucks I own. Maybe someone purchased a few P mint marks and wants a BU version. Mine are pretty good as far as defects or scuffs. I have Arches, Smokey mtns, Shawnee, and Roosevelt. I'd be willing too trade the pucks + bullion or cash for their P mintmark counterparts. Come on guys I know you want both.

    With the release of the Ellis Island puck, I thought it was a good time to update the mintage versus market value dataset. The market values haven't changed much since the last post with a little movement up and down depending on the puck. Five pucks are currently still available on the mint website including one from last year and all four released this year. The Ellis Island puck is selling quite well and will probably sellout by the end of the year.

    With the release of the George Rogers Clark puck, I thought it time for a Christmas update on the pucks. They have generally lost value since the last update despite a typical rise during the holiday season. The demand seems a little lighter this year suggesting a general malaise as this series moves into its eighth year. With a couple of exceptions, almost every puck is worth less than its purchased value. As a collector, I love many of these designs and I think that Clark is the best of the year. It really looks great on a large surface.

    That George Rogers Clark 5 ouncer we're going for $97 and some change on eBay. The cheapest I have ever seen any Puck go for

    Was that the "Bullion" or the Mint ordered "P" Vapor Blasted surface 5oz ?

    I think that was just a Bullion version, I didn't know there were different versions. I don't collect the series. But I've been tempted. I just looked. Wow I didn' realize the difference until now. That explains the pricing. All over the place.

    As a note, this post is intended for the collector version only and not the bullion version.

    I've just received the first collector's puck for 2018. I really like the design of the Pictured Rocks - Michigan National Lakeshore! Here's a picture

    With the release of the Pictured Rocks puck, I thought it was a good time for an update on the mintages versus market values of the collector pucks. It seems that the prices are moving up and down depending on the specimen. We did see the sellout of the Fort Moultrie puck since the last update but all the 2017 pucks are still being sold despite the Ellis Island and George Rogers pucks currently unavailable on the mint's website. I'm not sure what is going on at the mint with the George Rogers as it only has had sales of 14,741. As mentioned in my post above, the Pictured Rock is one of my favorites in this series. It had a pretty good first week of sales at 13,952.

  12. Thanks for the report I always enjoying reading them.
     
  13. Anyone know what’s going on with the 2017 P GRC 5 oz. ATB? New low mintage?

    I'm thinking that they had some production issues with this one. It is a pretty complex design. It will be interesting to see if it reappears for sale or goes to a sellout.
     
  15. Sold out! We have a new key! TC

    As mentioned by Topcat, the George Rogers is now sold out on the mint's website. With a current mintage of just 14,739, it will beat out Hawaii (14,863) for the lowest mintage. It is currently selling at $200 but should go higher. It will be interesting to hear the story of this sellout. I'm guessing that it was a minting problem. The mint is lowering the mintage each week by 1 or 2 but I'm guessing the sellout will stop the returns.

    I suspect interest in the ATB series is falling which led to fewer produced.
     
  18. I’m not convinced interest is falling more than interest is just not increasing. Most of the recent issues sell out in the 16,000-18,000 range, so any mintage under 15,000 is noteworthy. As the series gets close to ending, interest may even increase a bit. TC

    I hope so, I think it’s a great program and an awesome way to stack silver. I gave up on the proofs because UPS was opening my packages. Silver was shipped (opened), but gold seemed to fall off the back of a truck. I kept up on the bullion releases, and am waiting on Pictured Rocks.

    Something is going on with the George Rogers Clark. The other pucks are still selling with mintages near 17000. Pictured Rocks has only been on sale for a couple of weeks and has already out sold Georgie.
