Each 2020 Weir Farm Silver Uncirculated Coin will have a reverse design showcasing a portion of the Weir Farm National Historic Site found in the state of Connecticut. These silver uncirculated coins mark the fifty-second release of the US Mint’s America the Beautiful Five Ounce Uncirculated Coin Program and will each be struck from five ounces of silver to a diameter of three inches.
These strikes also mark the second release of the 2020 five ounce uncirculated coins which will include a total of five released by the US Mint that year. The strikes continue the program which debuted with 2010-dated strikes and will end with one strike appearing in 2021 at which time a total of fifty-six will have been issued.
This series is considered the collector versions of the 2020 silver bullion coins which are also struck from five ounces of the precious metal. However, whereas the bullion coins are produced for investors, the US Mint created this series solely with collectors in mind.
Congress authorized the Mint to continue the associated silver bullion coins for a second complete run if the Treasury Secretary chose that option. If so, it is likely the US Mint would also continue these numismatic strikes as well.
2020 Weir Farm Silver Uncirculated Coin Values
These 2020 Weir Farm Silver Uncirculated Coins are actually struck to resemble the much smaller Weir Farm America the Beautiful Quarter. As such, they will only have a face value of twenty-five cents like those quarters.
The face value should be relatively small, however, compared to the intrinsic melt value. That is because each is struck from five ounces of silver and thus will have a melt value approximately equal to what that amount of the precious metal is currently trading for.
Finally, since the coins are struck for collectors, they will have a numismatic value associated with them. This value generally increases based on the condition and rarity of the strike and typically has a notable premium over the melt value discussed before.
The Coin Values Page will offer recent melt values on the coins based on current market activity. Also shown will be sales data for the strikes.
Weir Farm Silver Uncirculated Coin Information
The 2020 Weir Farm Silver Uncirculated Coins will have a portrait of George Washington on their obverse like the related quarter does from the US Mint’s America the Beautiful Quarters® Program. This portrait was designed by John Flanagan and has been in use on the quarters in one form or another since 1932.
The reverse of the strike will showcase a portion of the Weir Farm National Historic Site found in Connecticut. The final design will be selected by the Treasury Secretary after receiving input from the Citizen’s Coinage Advisory Committee and the Commission of Fine Arts on several design candidates released by the US Mint.
