United States Mint Releases 20th Coin in America the Beautiful Quarters® Program November 4
WASHINGTON-Beginning November 4 at noon Eastern Time (ET), the United States Mint will accept orders for product options containing quarters honoring Mount Rushmore National Memorial in South Dakota. The new quarter is the 20th coin released in the America the Beautiful Quarters Program, the multi-year initiative to honor our national sites. Product options and pricing are as follows:
Two-Roll Set (40 coins per roll)
"P" and "D"
WG1, WG2, WG3
"P," "D," or "S"
Single Roll (40 coins)
"P," "D," and "S"
The coins in the rolls and bags are circulating quality struck on the main production floors of the United States Mint's facilities at Denver, Philadelphia, and San Francisco. Unlike the "P" and "D" mint mark quarters, coins with the "S" mint mark will not be released into circulation.
The special numismatic wrapping for the coin rolls displays the name "Mount Rushmore National Memorial"; the abbreviation "SD" for South Dakota; "$10" (the face value of its contents); and "P," "D," or "S" for the mint of origin. The canvas bags have a tag with "Mount Rushmore National Memorial"; "SD"; and "P," "D," or "S."
