    For a moment I was trying to interpret that as a ring setting. Whoa.

    The Weir Farm National Historic Site puck went on sale on 18 May 2020. It is the 52nd puck in the ATB series and the second of 2020. The US mint will release sales figures for this puck starting next week. All the 2019 pucks remain available for sale on the mint's website including the Lowell, American Memorial Park, War in the Pacific, and San Antonito pucks as well as the 2020 Samoan Bat puck. The higher sales price of the Samoan puck hasn't impacted sales volume, which has already exceeded two of last year's puck. It will be interesting to see if the Connecticut puck has similar interest in these times of COVID. I would rate the design of this latest puck about average.

    From the Mint Website. The Weir Farm National Historic Site is the second release of 2020. The reverse (tails) design portrays an artist, wearing a painter’s smock, painting outside Julian Alden Weir’s studio at Weir Farm. It is inspired by various images of the studio and Weir’s paintings created on the property, as well as descriptions of Weir and his fellow artists’ creative inspiration from the rural environment. Inscriptions are "WEIR FARM," "CONNECTICUT," "2020," "E PLURIBUS UNUM, " and “A NATIONAL PARK FOR ART.”

    Weir Farm National Historic Site was associated with the development of American Impressionism during the height of the artistic movement at the turn of the 19th century. The farm was home to three generations of American artists beginning with Julian Alden Weir, who acquired it in 1882. He was a leading figure in the development of American Impressionism. Here, amidst rocky fields and woodlands, he spent nearly four decades painting. His artist friends and other luminaries often joined him at Weir Farm, which was a short train ride from New York City. After Weir, the artistic legacy was continued by his daughter, painter Dorothy Weir Young, and her husband, sculptor Mahonri Young, followed by New England painters Sperry and Doris Andrews.

    Weir Farm includes a 60-acre cultural landscape consisting of 15 historic structures including houses, barns, studios, and outbuildings. The landscape features bedrock outcrops, historic gardens, stone terraces, specimen trees, orchards, fields, miles of stone laid walls, a pond, and hundreds of historic painting sites. The artistic tradition at Weir Farm is kept alive through a variety of Art in the Park programs, free art supplies, large frames in the landscape to recreate paintings, night painting, and art instruction.

    The first week of sales for the Weir Farm puck were quite light at only 11,818. Surprisingly, the Samoan puck continues to sell quite well despite the significant increase in price in 2020. It already exceeds sales of the Northern Mariana Island, Texas, and Idaho pucks, which were release last year. I must say that the Samoan bats are a very nice design to display on a puck. Market values are mixed for the pucks. The 2010 pucks seem to have increased in value while Hawaii puck continues to drop in value. I'm guessing that the lower mintage of the George Rogers Clark as well as the expected lower mintages of several of the 2019 pucks are impacting the future value of the Hawaiian puck. When reviewing sold items on eBay, it continues to be obvious that you should use the "Buy it Now" option in lieu of other options. It seems to be better to wait for your asking price than watching something sell for a much lower value due to little interest. Here is the updated chart and graph:

    With the surge in the price of silver, it is no surprise that the demand of pucks has risen over the past week. The 2019 pucks seem to be going quite quickly at $154.95 in price as the intrinsic value approaches 80%. The 2020 Samoan Bat is still seeing some serious interest despite its price of $178.25. The Bat and the 2019 War in the Pacific pucks are currently unavailable. I wouldn't be surprised if both pucks sellout shortly. They near the mintage numbers of the last sellout from 2018 (Block Island).

    With the silver price in the collector pucks at over 90% of their sales price, the mint shows the 2019 pucks as "Unavailable". I'm predicting that they will restart selling them at $178.25. Let's see. We will probably see a sellout of the War in the Pacific and Bat pucks with a sellout of the Lowell puck next.

    I was afraid this would happen to the 2019s too, but they've since become available (and then unavailable) a couple more times, still at the $155 price. So I picked up a couple more San Antonio quarters, they're honestly the only ones I've really cared for so far due to the resemblance to colonial reales. If the price holds maybe I'll get another next month.
