The US Mint will offer the District of Columbia and U.S. Territories Quarters Program Map on May 19, 2009 at 12:00 Noon ET. This map will provide a way to collect the quarters and learn about the different locations.
Each map will have coin holders to contain the six 2009 quarters honoring the District of Columbia, the Commonwealth of Puerto Rico, Guam, American Samoa, the United States Virgin Islands, and the Commonwealth of Northern Mariana Islands. The map will include photos of scenes from each location as well as facts about each location.
The DC & US Territories maps will be priced at $12.95 each. Production is limited to 50,000 units. The US Mint’s product page can be found here.
The US Mint had previously offered a collector’s map for the 50 State Quarters Program. These maps are no longer available for sale on the US Mint’s website, although they can be found on eBay for under $10.
Note: Additional coverage of the 2009 Lincoln Cent launch in Lincoln City, Indiana will be coming later today, including photos and some firsthand accounts!
