The United States Mint will begin sales of the 2011 America the Beautiful Quarters Uncirculated Coin Set tomorrow, April 19, 2011 at 12:00 Noon ET. This is one of several separate sets developed for the new quarter program.
The 2011 America the Beautiful Quarters feature: Gettysburg National Military Park, Glacier National Park, Olympic National Park, Vicksburg National Military Park, and Chickasaw National Recreation Area.
The upcoming set includes uncirculated versions of the 2011 quarters minted at Philadelphia and Denver. The ten-coin set is priced at $21.95, which remains unchanged from the price of last year’s set.
The US Mint indicates that the coins included in this set feature a “brilliant uncirculated finish.” This seems to be the same “brilliant finish” that was recently adopted for the 2011 Uncircualted Mint Set.
Last year, the 2010 ATB Uncirculated Coin Set included coins with the “satin finish.” Since this set went on sale November 23, 2010, the US Mint has recorded sales of 24,553 units. The product continues to remain available for sale.
2011 Silver Proof Sets
Earlier today, the US Mint suspended sales of the 2011 Silver Proof Set and 2011 America the Beautiful Quarters Silver Proof Set. On Friday, I had mentioned such a possibility, as the price of silver exceed $42 per ounce.
In order to adjust prices for products not included under the US Mint’s gold and platinum numismatic pricing policy, new prices must be published in the Federal Register. This process can take several weeks, during which time sales are suspended.
