Today April 25, 2013 at 12:00 Noon ET, the United States Mint will begin accepting orders for the 2013 America the Beautiful Quarters Uncirculated Coin Set.
The set includes uncirculated versions of the five 2013 America the Beautiful Quarters from both the Philadelphia and Denver Mints. The sites depicted on this year’s quarters are White Mountain National Forest in New Hampshire, Perry’s Victory and International Peace Memorial in Ohio, Great Basin National Park in Nevada, Fort McHenry National Monument and Historic Shrine in Maryland, and Mount Rushmore National Memorial in South Dakota.
The ten coins come within a display folder which includes images from each of the sites on the front, with brief information about the sites and coin specification information inside.
Each set is priced at $12.95 each. There are no household ordering limits or product limits indicated.
The coins included in this set are described as featuring “sharp, intricately detailed images”. From past experience, the coins included in the US Mint’s Uncirculated Coin Sets are superior to the circulating quality coins included in bags and rolls. The US Mint previously indicated that the uncirculated coins are struck on special presses using greater force than circulating coins.
Later in the year, the US Mint will release the 28-coin 2013 Uncirculated Coin Set, which will include the coins released in the present set. The full 28-coin set is priced at $27.95 and scheduled for release on June 4, 2013.
