Washington, D.C. – The U.S. Mint today announced that the new Delaware Quarter under the 50 State Quarters Program is now available in bags of 100 and 1,000 coins.
“We are making our best effort to respond to extraordinary public demand for the new state quarters,” said Mint Director Philip N. Diehl. “Since the beginning of the program, we’ve received a steady stream of calls and letters from citizens who want to collect the quarters in larger numbers than are available to them locally.
“I want to encourage customers to place their orders quickly, since the production run of Delaware quarters has been completed and quantities are limited.”
These Mint–sewn bags feature coins struck on the main production floors in Philadelphia and Denver, and each bag is marked with the Mint of origin and the dollar value of its contents ($25 or $250). The same coins that are shipped to the Federal Reserve for distribution in commerce will be shipped directly to customers in 100–coin bags for $29.95 and in 1,000–coin bags for $289.95.
The Delaware design is the first of the new quarters available in bags; other quarters in the series may be offered for sale in bags in the near future.
Customers may order the Delaware Quarters in bags directly through the Mint’s online catalogue at www.USMINT.gov where order forms may be downloaded for customers who prefer to mail or fax their order. The order form from the website may be mailed with the customer’s credit card number, check or money order to: Customer Care Center, United States Mint, 10003 Derekwood Lane, Lanham, MD 20706.
