Earlier today, April 20, the United States Mint started accepting orders for rolls and bags filled with Kisatchie National Forest Quarters.
Available in various quantities and from different production locations, these 25-cent pieces are struck in circulating quality — the same quality as quarters found in change every day.
Reverse or tails side of the quarters offer a design emblematic of Kisatchie National Forest in Louisiana. They are the second of the five quarters for 2015, and the 27th released in the U.S. Mint’s America the Beautiful Quarters® Program.
Product options with Kisatchie quarters include single rolls, two-roll sets, three-roll sets and 100-coin bags. All hold quarter-dollars from one of three different coin production facilities — the U.S. Mint’s in San Francisco, Denver or Philadelphia.
Production facilities in Denver and Philadelphia are tasked with making all U.S. circulating coins. As such, quarters from these two locations will eventually find their way into change. Quarters from San Francisco, however, are only made for coin collectors. They will not be found in change.
Quarter Rolls and Bags
In all, there are six products with the new circulating-quality quarters. They include:
- single roll of 40 quarters from San Francisco for $18.95;
- two-rolls of 40 quarters each with one roll from Philadelphia and one roll from Denver for $32.95;
- three rolls of 40 quarters each with one from San Francisco, one from Philadelphia and one from Denver for $46.95; and
- 100-coin bags with buyer’s choice of minting facility for $34.95.
Designs on 2015 Kisatchie National Forest Quarters
Reverses of the quarter show a wild turkey in flight over blue stem grass. A long leaf pine appears in the background.
This design was created by Susan Gamble and sculpted by Joseph Menna. Inscriptions around the imagery include KISATCHIE, LOUISIANA, 2015, and E PLURIBUS UNUM.
Where to Order the Rolls and Bags
Kisatchie National Forest Quarters may be ordered directly from the U.S. Mint. A product page on the Mint’s website dedicated to the quarter series is located here. Orders are also accepted by calling 1-800-USA-MINT (872-6468).
On Wednesday, April 22, the U.S. Mint and National Forest Service will unveil the new quarter in a ceremony.
