WASHINGTON — Bags and rolls of the first commemorative quarter–dollar coin of 2008–honoring Oklahoma–will be available beginning 12 noon (ET) on January 28, 2008, the United States Mint announced today. There is no order limit on these options.
The coins contained in the Oklahoma quarter bags and rolls were struck on the main production floors at the United States Mint facilities at Denver and Philadelphia for use in general circulation.
The Oklahoma quarter is the 46th coin in the United States Mint’s popular 50 State Quarters Program. The coin’s reverse design features the State bird, the Scissortail Flycatcher. The bird is soaring above the State wildflower, the Indian Blanket, amid a field of similar wildflowers. Inscriptions on the reverse are “Oklahoma” and “1907.”
Offered at $32.95, the two–roll sets include one roll each of 40 coins bearing the “D” and “P” mintmarks. The coins are wrapped in distinctive packaging bearing the 50 State Quarters logo, the mint of origin, the official state abbreviation and the dollar value of the contents. The 100– and 1,000–coin bags are offered at $32.95 and $309.95, respectively. Each canvas bag has a tag with the mint of origin and the monetary value of its contents ($25 or $250).
The Oklahoma quarter bags and rolls will be available for approximately 10 weeks. Customers may submit their orders for these options at the United States Mint’s toll–free number, 1–800–USA–MINT (872–6468). Hearing– and speech–impaired customers with TTY equipment may call 1–888–321–MINT (6468). Domestic orders include a $4.95 fee per order for shipping and handling. Because of their size and weight, an additional charge of $7.95 per bag will be applied to orders for 1,000–coin quarter bags.
As an added convenience, customers may enroll in the United States Mint’s Online Subscription Program to receive future bags and rolls when they are released. For more information about this ordering method, please visit www.usmint.gov.
