The United States Mint has started accepting orders for the 2015-P Homestead National Monument of America 5 Ounce Silver Uncirculated Coin. Struck in 99.9% pure silver with an uncirculated finish, this numismatic product is limited to a maximum mintage of 30,000 pieces.
The coin represents the first release of the year and the twenty-sixth release overall within the America the Beautiful Five Ounce Silver Uncirculated Coin Series. Coins of the series feature the designs of the America the Beautiful Quarters Program, which will include 56 different issues representing a national park or site in each state, territory, and the District of Columbia.
The Homestead National Monument Silver Coin carries a depiction of the three fundamentals of survival common to all homesteaders: food, shelter, and water. The inscriptions read “Homestead”, “Nebraska”, “2015”, and “E Pluribus Unum”. The reverse was designed by Ronald D. Sanders and engraved by Jim Licaretz.
The obverse of the coin carries the 1932 portrait of George Washington designed by John Flanagan. The inscriptions read “United States of America”, the denomination “Quarter Dollar”, “Liberty”, and “In God We Trust”.
Incused edge lettering reads “.999 Fine Silver 5.0 Ounce”, indicating the precious metal purity and weight.
Each coin is struck with an uncirculated finish created through a vapor blasting technique and carries the “P” mint mark. A bullion version of the coin released previously carries a brilliant finish and does not bear a mint mark.
This numismatic offering carries a price of $149.95 per coin, plus applicable shipping and handling. As with all US Mint precious metals products, this pricing may be subject to change. The issue carries a maximum mintage of 30,000 pieces.
