The United States Mint has recently released images for some of the upcoming 2011 coins. Previously, only line art images had been available. The new coin images include the 2011 America the Beautiful Quarters and the 2011 Native American Dollar.
Besides providing a better idea of what the coins will look like in hand, the images also seem to portray the coins with the brilliant finish that will be used for uncirculated coin sets.
The circulation release dates for 2011 America the Beautiful Quarters according to Federal Reserve Bank Services will be January 24, April 4, June 13, August 29, and November 14. The coins have already been released in proof format within the 2011 Proof Set and will all be released in the 2011 Mint Set on February 8.
The 2011 Native American Dollar was scheduled to launch yesterday on January 12, but the ceremony was canceled with a future date not yet announced. Numismatic rolls are scheduled for March 28. Based on past practice, the coins may also be available in $250 boxes through the Direct Ship Program.
