A press release from the U.S. Mint states that the 2015 America the Beautiful Blue Ridge Parkway Five Ounce Silver Bullion coin is now sold out.

This comes after the coin sold its entire 35,000 piece mintage on June 22, the day of its initial release. Sales resumed on July 13 and have been strong since.

The statement makes no mention of further production and points to the release of the next coin in the series, ATB #29, which will feature Delaware’s Bombay Hook National Wildlife Refuge and is scheduled for release on September 30.

The U.S. Mint’s Web site lists total sales for the 2015 ATB Blue Ridge Parkway Five Ounce Silver Bullion Coin at 45,000. A quick look at a variety of online retailers puts the current retail cost of the coin between $95 and $110.
