United States Mint rolls and bags of Homestead National Monument Quarters go on sale beginning at noon ET on Tuesday, February 24, 2015.
These quarters are in circulating quality, the same quality as coins found in change, but they have never been in circulation.
On reverses (tails side) is a design emblematic of Homestead National Monument of American in Nebraska. They are the first of five 2015 quarters from the U.S. Mint’s America the Beautiful Quarters® Program.
Product options with Homestead quarters include single rolls, two-roll sets, three-roll sets and 100-coin bags. All have quarters from one of three different U.S. Mint coin production facilities — San Francisco, Denver or Philadelphia.
Minting facilities in Philadelphia and Denver are responsible for making all U.S. circulating coins so quarters from these two plants will eventually make their way into change. San Francisco quarters, however, are only made for collectors so they will not be found in pocket change.

Designs on 2015 Homestead National Monument Quarters
A cabin, water pump and two ears of corn appear on the reverse of the quarter, representing the three fundamentals of survival common to all homesteaders: food, shelter, and water.
This design was created by Ronald D. Sanders and executed by Jim Licaretz. Inscriptions around the imagery include HOMESTEAD, NEBRASKA, 2015, and E PLURIBUS UNUM.
Quarters share an obverse portrait of George Washington. Inscriptions include UNITED STATES OF AMERICA, LIBERTY, IN GOD WE TRUST, and QUARTER DOLLAR.
