2016 Harpers Ferry National Historical Park 5 oz. Silver Uncirculated Coin For Sale

2016-harpers-ferry-ATB-silver-uncirculated-coinOn July 14, 2016, the United States Mint began selling the 2016 Harpers Ferry National Historical Park 5 oz. Silver Uncirculated Coin. This beautiful coin commemorates the Harpers Ferry National Historical Park.

This America the Beautiful coin contains 5 ounces of .999 silver. Originally priced by the Mint at $149.95, it carries a "P" mint Mark, which designates it as a numismatic variety. Bullion versions of the same coin went on sale prior to this release. Bullion versions carry no mint mark and do not have the special vapor blast coating that the numismatic coins have.

The mintage limit on this Harpers Ferry 5 ounce Uncirculated coin has been set at a limit of 30,000 pieces. If history is any guide, it will probably have a final mintage under 20,000. This compares to the average mintage that other coins in the series have been recently experiencing.

Harpers-ferry-obverseThe design on the reverse side of this silver coin was created by Thomas Hipschen, and it was engraved by Phebe Hemphill. In the center of the image is a rendition of John Brown's fort, which is where Brown and the men fighting with him made their final stand as the Harpers Ferry Armory was being raided. On the left side is the inscription, "WEST VIRGINIA" and "E PLURIBUS UNUM" is inscribed on the right. The year "2016" inscribed at the bottom.

As with all America the Beautiful silver coins, the obverse side has a rendition of John Flanagan's 1932 portrait of the first President of the United States of America, George Washington.

First-day sales were brisk for this America the Beautiful 2016 Harpers Ferry National Historical Park 5 ounce Silver Uncirculated Coin at 18,015 units. This compares to 16,723 units sold for the last issue, which commemorated the Cumberland Gap.
