Uncirculated Dollar Sells Out
The United States
Uncirculated Lincoln Silver Dollar sold out
Tuesday. While ordering is still an available
option through the Mint’s online store,
collectors who do must hope an older order is
cancelled, as the following Mint statement
Waiting List Notice: The number of orders we
have taken meets the maximum limit for the
Abraham Lincoln Commemorative Uncirculated
Silver Dollar. You may still place an order for
this product, which will go on a waiting list.
If a product becomes available due to an order
cancellation, we will fulfill orders from the
waiting list on a first-in, first-served basis.
We cannot provide information about your
position on the waiting list.
When we place your order on the waiting list, we
will send you an order receipt. This is not a
guarantee that you will receive your order. If
we are not able to fulfill part or all of your
order, you will receive a cancellation or
sold-out notification. If you paid by check, you
will receive a refund.
The sellout is not unexpected, as CoinNews and
other numismatic media sources warned of the
likelihood more than once. The most recent sales
figures indicated 296,488 proof and 126,963
uncirculated silver dollar were sold, for a
total of 423,451.
While the vigorous sales pace had slowed
slightly in the last two weeks, even the most
recent stats reflected that nearly 43,000 were
scooped up within several days. Given the entire
commemorative series has a total mintage limit
of 500,000 with 50,000 reserved for a special
five-coin Lincoln proof set, it was just a
matter of time. The allotted individual proof
coins are likely to lead into a sellout shortly
