Today, February 7, 2012 at 12:00 Noon ET, the United States Mint began sales of the 2012 America the Beautiful Quarters Three Coin Set featuring El Yunque National Forest. The product type has undergone two changes for the latest release.
As in the past, the product includes one uncirculated quarter from the Philadelphia Mint, one uncirculated quarter from the Denver Mint, and one proof quarter from the San Francisco Mint. These three coins are mounted onto a plastic card containing a brief description of the coins and the site on the back of the card, along with a certificate of authenticity.
Representing a change from the past releases, the plastic card features a full color illustration of the National Forest on the front of the card. For the first ten releases, this space was blank.
The El Yunque Quarter Three Coin Sets are priced at $9.95 each. This represents a reduction of $5 from the price charged for the product type last year. There are no ordering limits or stated product limits in place.
The previous ten America the Beautiful Three Coin Sets remain available for sale on the US Mint’s website. The pricing for each set remains at $14.95 each. As of the latest sales report issued today, sales for this product type have ranged from a high of 20,436 for the Yellowstone set to a low of 12,162 for the most recently released Chickasaw set.
