On Monday, August 27, Cumberland Island quarters become available in United States Mint roll and bag products.
This year’s fourth and overall forty-fourth coin from the U.S. Mint’s series of America the Beautiful quarter dollars has a unique design on its reverse or tails side that is emblematic of Georgia’s national seashore.
Rolls and Bags of Quarters
Circulating quality Cumberland Island National Seashore quarters from the Mint will be from one of its three production facilities:
- the Philadelphia Mint,
- the Denver Mint, and
- the San Francisco Mint.
Each quarter carries a mint mark on its obverses (heads side) reflecting where it was made with “S” for San Francisco, “P” for Philadelphia, and “D” for Denver.
Keep in mind that it will take months to years for Denver- and Philadelphia-minted Cumberland Island 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 will not enter circulation.
Buying straight from the U.S. Mint assures quick delivery of new quarters and also makes it easy to get from any of the three production facilities. It does cost more.
Here is a listing of the 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|
