The US Mint just announced that the 2008 State Quarters Proof Set will go on sale tomorrow January 24, 2008.
This annual set contains proof versions of all of the year’s State Quarters. This year’s set will contain the quarters honoring Oklahoma, New Mexico, Arizona, Alaska, and Hawaii. Notably, these are the last of the “State Quarters.” Although 2009 will see the release of six additional quarters to honor US Territories and the District of Columbia.
As of the writing of this post, the US Mint’s website ordering system is still down. So there is the potential that sales might be delayed until this is restored. Sales of bags and rolls of 2008 Sacagawea Dollars and Kennedy Halves were scheduled to be released this week, but have been delayed.
When will the Mint’s website be restored? Still no definite date, but hopefully soon.
