WASHINGTON — Are you yearning to see the panoramic vistas of the Grand Canyon but cannot make the trip? Do the next best thing and get shiny new Arizona commemorative quarter–dollar coins, available in bags and rolls beginning June 2 at 12 noon (ET). Customers may order as many of these options as they like. There is no order limit.
The Arizona quarter is the 48th coin in the United States Mint’s 50 State Quarters Program. The coin’s reverse features an image of the Grand Canyon with a Saguaro cactus in the foreground. A banner reading “Grand Canyon State” separates the two images to signify that the Saguaro cactus does not grow in the Grand Canyon. The coin also bears the inscriptions “Arizona” and “1912.”
The coins contained in the bags and rolls were struck at United States Mint facilities at Denver and Philadelphia for use in general circulation. The two–roll sets, offered at $32.95, 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 state abbreviation.
Customers may visit the United States Mint’s Web site, www.usmint.gov, or call the toll–free number, 1–800–USA–MINT (872–6468), to place orders for the bags and rolls of Arizona quarters. 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.
