From the mint website. Established in 1970, the park includes 21 islands in Lake Superior and a 12-mile-long strip of mainland shoreline. The park encompasses more than 69,000 acres, almost 40 percent of which are part of Lake Superior, and lies within the heart of the ancestral and modern homeland of the Ojibwe people. The park features pristine stretches of sand beaches and coves, spectacular sea caves, some of the highest quality stands of remnant old-growth upper forests in the Midwest, and a diverse population of birds, mammals, amphibians, and fish. It also has the largest collection of National Register lighthouses (nine) and lighthouse complexes (seven) in the national park system.
From the mint website. Voyageurs National Park was established in 1975 “to preserve . . . the outstanding scenery, geological conditions, and waterway system” inherent to the park. Visitors can see and touch rocks half as old as the world, immerse themselves in the sights and sounds of a boreal forest, view the dark skies, or ply the interconnected water routes. The park protects 218,054 acres of land, with 84,000 acres of that being water. In essence, this park is miles of undeveloped shoreline, with hundreds of islands and numerous large lakes. The combination of rocky shorelines, the meeting of southern boreal and northern hardwood forests, and the open water creates a distinct home for bald eagles, loons, black bears, moose, and wolves (with wolves, moose, and bears most commonly seen by visitors).
From the mint website. The 2018 America the Beautiful Five Ounce Silver Uncirculated Coin™ – Cumberland Island National Seashore (Georgia) is the fourth release of 2018 in the America the Beautiful Quarters® Program. The reverse (tails) design depicts a snowy egret posing on a branch on the edge of a salt marsh, ready for flight. Inscriptions are "CUMBERLAND ISLAND," "GEORGIA," "2018," and "E PLURIBUS UNUM." Cumberland Island National Seashore was established in 1972. It maintains the primitive, undeveloped character of one of the largest and most ecologically diverse barrier islands on the Atlantic coast, while preserving scenic, scientific, and historical values and providing outstanding opportunities for outdoor recreation and solitude. Cumberland Island contains a rich concentration of cultural resources that recount 4,000 years of human habitation and include a remarkable diversity of ethnic and social backgrounds. There are almost 18 miles of pristine beach open to the public for recreational activities such as swimming and walking. The island is also known to have one of the largest oak maritime forests remaining in the United States, which provides an unparalleled visitor experience. Cumberland Island National Seashore protects the largest designated wilderness area on an east coast barrier island. The island’s physical location provides visitors opportunities to experience outdoor recreation in an uncrowded, undeveloped setting.
I think that the mint should lower the price to say $135. You can sell the pucks on the bay for the prices above. You will surrender 15% but you'll do far better than melt. If you sell on the bay, you should use the "Buy it Now" option. It seems to get the best result, but you will need to wait a bit.
I feel great about this purchase because I missed out on getting it at the USMint.gov web site when it got sold out.
This appears (for the time being) to be the lowest final mintage "P" puck out of all of the "P" pucks that were minted up to now.
The 2018 Cumberland Island "P" puck mintage currently stands at 14,158 (as of October 28, 2018 U.S. Mint Sales report). It will be interesting (to me anyway) to see where the final mintage of the Cumberland Island "P" will be.
WOW, good deal! Did you get the ogp & coa with them?
Yep. I did get the ogp & coa with them. They both look great.
That's right because super low mintage coins always sell for melt in the long run.
In the long run we are all dead.
I figure I'll be long dead before, say, First Spouse uncirculated gold -- nearly all with mintages well under 5,000 -- trades much higher than spot.
