2011 5 oz Silver America the Beautiful Vicksburg MS69 NGC Coin

The Vicksburg 5oz. Silver bullion coin marks the ninth of fifty-six issues in the America the Beautiful Five Ounce Silver Bullion Coin series. It is the fourth of five which will be available this year. As a United States Mint bullion product, the Vicksburg bullion coin will not be available for direct sale through the Mint's website or customer service department.

This is a distinction from the companion five ounce uncirculated versions produced specifically for coin collectors. Instead, a network of distributors, known as "United States Mint Authorized Purchasers," buys the bullion coins in large quantities and then resells them in smaller amounts to dealers and precious metals providers for a modest premium above the current spot price of silver. Like the previous 2011-dated issues, the Vicksburg National Military Park 5 Oz Silver Bullion Coin has a total mintage limit of 126,700.

As a bonus each order will receive a Civil War book.
