At 12 noon Eastern Time on Tuesday, April 19, the latest America the Beautiful Quarters Uncirculated Set was launched by the United States Mint for $21.95.
This set consists of 10 quarters — five uncirculated quarters minted at Denver and five uncirculated quarters minted at Philadelphia, which equals two strikes for each design. The uncirculated finish means the coins are not business strikes like those found in every day change. Instead, they go through a special minting process for collectors.
The uncirculated quarters set includes:
- 2011-D and 2011-P Gettysburg National Military Park Quarter,
- 2011-D and 2011-P Glacier National Park Quarter,
- 2011-D and 2011-P Olympic National Park Quarter,
- 2011-D and 2011-P Vicksburg National Military Park Quarter, and
- 2011-D and 2011-P Chickasaw National Recreation Area Quarter
The corresponding states for which each quarter represent are Pennsylvania, Montana, Washington, Mississippi, and Oklahoma respectively. There is a brief description of the commemorated parks and sites on the set’s package.
The United States Mint accepts orders via their website at http://www.usmint.gov/catalog and by phone at 1-800-USA-MINT (872-6468). Hearing and speech-impaired customers with TTY equipment may place their orders by calling 1-888-321-MINT (6468). A shipping and handling fee of $4.95 will be added to all domestic orders.
This is the third exclusive America the Beautiful Quarters Set to emerge this year. The US Mint has already released the America the Beautiful Quarters Proof Set on March 17, and the America the Beautiful Quarters Silver Proof Set on April 1.
Following today’s uncirculated quarters set will be the America the Beautiful Quarters Circulating Coin Set, which is scheduled for release on November 22.
At this time, just two of the five park quarters are available in general circulation. They are the Gettysburg Quarter, which debuted on January 24, and the Glacier Quarter which opened on April 4.
