Another 2010-dated quarters set will be hitting the market Thursday, November 19, at noon ET. The United States Mint is launching the 2010 America the Beautiful Quarters Circulating Coin Set for $9.95, plus a shipping and handling fee.
This new circulating coin set contains the five new 2010 quarters, struck in circulation-quality. There are two coins with each design, one coin bears the "P" mint mark from Philadelphia and the other has the "D" mint mark from Denver.
The quarters in the coin set include two each of the:
- Hot Springs National Park Quarter from the state of Arkansas
- Yellowstone National Park Quarter from the state of Wyoming
- Yosemite National Park Quarter from the state of California,
- Grand Canyon National Park Quarter from the sate of Arizona, and
- Mount Hood National Forest Quarter from the state of Oregon
Besides the US Mint’s new logo, much thought was given to the new coin set packaging. The Mint said, "The packaging allows the coins to be easily removed and placed into albums or other numismatic accessories."
The new 2010 America the Beautiful Quarters Circulating Coin Set was originally announced in May, but is finally debuting now. Orders may be placed via the United States Mint’s secure Web site, http://www.usmint.gov/catalog, or at the toll-free number, 1-800-USA-MINT (872-6468).
Future year collectible coin sets are available through the Mint’s subscription service, which enables customers to receive a new set automatically each year during the America the Beautiful Quarters Program.
One more collectible quarters set is planned for next week. It will be the 2010 America the Beautiful Quarters Uncirculated Coin Set, but it will cost $21.95.
Already on the market and containing the five new 2010 quarters are:
- 2010 America the Beautiful Quarters Proof Set™,
- 2010 America the Beautiful Quarters Silver Proof Set™,
- 2010 United States Mint Proof Set®,
- 2010 United States Mint Uncirculated Coin Set®
For collectors interested in just one design, 100-coin bags and Two-Roll Sets of the customer’s choosing have been offered since each quarter design’s launch date. Recently, the Mint started the 2010 America the Beautiful Quarters Three-Coin Set, which at this time only features the Hot Springs quarter (the first three-coin set went on sale Wednesday).
