This year’s final and overall forty-fifth coin from the U.S. Mint’s series of America the Beautiful quarter dollars has a unique design on its reverse (tails side) that is emblematic of Rhode Island’s national wildlife refuge.

Rolls and Bags of Quarters

Block Island National Wildlife Refuge quarters from the Mint will originate from one of these three production facilities:

  • the Philadelphia Mint,
  • the Denver Mint, and
  • the San Francisco Mint.

Each quarter has a mint mark on its obverse (heads side) denoting where it was made with "P" for Philadelphia, "D" for Denver, and "S" for San Francisco.

Normally, it takes months to years for newly designed quarters to make their way into pocket change, but they will eventually. Those from the San Francisco Mint, however, are produced only for coin collectors so they do not enter circulation.

Ordering them straight from the U.S. Mint assures quick delivery of new quarters and makes it much easier to get them from the three production facilities. It does cost more.

Here is a listing of the U.S. Mint’s quarter rolls and quarter bags and their prices:

PRODUCT OPTION MINT MARK PRICE
Single Roll of 40 coins "S" $18.95
100-Coin Bag "P," "D," or "S" $34.95
Two-Roll Set, 40 coins per roll "P" and "D" $32.95
Three-Roll Set, 40 coins per roll "P," "D," and "S" $46.95
