2014 America the Beautiful Quarters Circulation Release Dates

Circulation release dates for the five 2014 America the Beautiful Quarters range from January to November, keeping with recent tradition and according to newly published data by the Federal Reserve Bank Services — Federal Reserve Banks place U.S. Mint orders for circulating coinage based on circulation needs and orders they receive from local financial institutions.

2010 America the Beautiful Quarters Release Dates

The picture has become clearer for when the 2010 America the Beautiful Quarters will begin to circulate. While the United States Mint has started to create the buzz for the first Hot Springs National Park Quarter set to enter circulation on April 19, 2010, with a following ceremonial launch on the 20th, it has remained silent as to the release dates for the following four quarters of the year.

Other entities must be prepared for the quarter releases, outside the U.S. Mint and its processes. Most notable is the Federal Reserve, which is actually responsible for receiving new U.S. Mint coinage and then distributing it to the various banks who supply the Nation’s circulating change.

America the Beautiful Quarters Rolls Available April 19, 2010

America the Beautiful Quarters Rolls

The very first America the Beautiful Quarters product offering from the United States Mint will be rolls and bags of the Hot Springs National Park Quarter.

The U.S. Mint this week said two-roll sets and 100-coin bags of the quarter-dollars will be available on April 19, 2010 at noon Eastern Time. The coins will be officially released into circulation on the same day.

The Hot Springs National Park Quarter is the first of the 56 quarters in the new 11-year program to honor National Parks and other National Sites in each state, DC and US Territories. Hot Springs National Park is located in Arkansas and presumably an official ceremonial launch by the Mint would occur there — an annoucement is yet to be made.

America the Beautiful Quarters: Collector Products, Schedule, Prices

Numismatic America the Beautiful Quarters products for 2010 were revealed when the United States Mint released its preliminary schedule for the year in late December.

It was that same schedule which unveiled the very likely release dates for the new 2010 quarters that honor Hot Springs National Park, Yellowstone National Park, Yosemite National Park, Grand Canyon National Park, and Mount Hood National Forest.

The schedule coupled with the US Mint’s already available subscription program, which enables the public to buy future coin products and have them delivered when they are released, provides a general idea of what collector quarter products to expect this year, when they will be issued, and even some preliminary prices.

Here is a table of products, schedule and prices: Continue reading America the Beautiful Quarters: Collector Products, Schedule, Prices

2010 America the Beautiful Quarters: Release Dates

Editor’s update: For the latest release dates for this year’s quarters, see the updated article: 2010 America the Beautiful Quarters Release Dates.

The United States Mint has provided the America the Beautiful Quarters Release Schedule, which lists all 56 national parks and other national sites to be honored and on what year.

But it has not offered exact dates for the release of any quarter, to include the upcoming 2010 quarters which honor:

  • Hot Springs National Park in Arkansas,
  • Yellowstone National Park in Wyoming,
  • Yosemite National Park in California,
  • Grand Canyon National Park in Arizona, and
  • Mt. Hood National Forest in Oregon.

However, in an unexpected move, the US Mint has published a preliminary 2010 product schedule. (During much of 2009, collectors learned of future product releases only several weeks before they happened.) The schedule is enlightening as it provides the release months for US Mint bags and rolls of the 2010 America the Beautiful Quarters.
