Today, November 13, 2014 at 12:00 Noon ET, the United States Mint began accepting orders for the 2014 America the Beautiful Quarters Circulating Coin Set. This ten coin set includes circulating quality examples of each of this year’s quarters from both the Philadelphia and Denver Mints.
This year’s quarters feature designs representing Great Smoky Mountains National Park in Tennessee, Shenandoah National Park in Virginia, Arches National Park in Utah, Great Sand Dunes National Park in Colorado, and Everglades National Park in Florida.
The ten coins are held within packaging which can easily be opened to allow the coins to be placed within albums or other storage options. Each set is priced at $5.95 with no stated product or household limits.
These circulating coin sets were introduced by the United States Mint in 2010. Back then, the new quarter designs were difficult to come by in circulation due to the lower mintage levels and fragmented distribution. The sets could have been viewed as an easy method for someone to acquire each of the year’s quarters at a low price point.
The 2010, 2011, and 2013 America the Beautiful Quarters Circulating Coin Sets still remain available for sale at the Mint. The latest sales report shows sales levels of 35,925 for 2010, 32,687 for 2011, and 24,118 for 2013.
