2015 US Mint Coin Production by Design
Denver Phil. Total
Homestead 248.60 M 214.40 M 463.00 M
Harry S. Truman 3.36 M 4.90 M 8.26 M
Dwight D. Eisenhower 3.36 M 4.90 M 8.26 M

The United States Mint has provided the first production totals by design for this year’s America the Beautiful Quarters and Presidential Dollars. As in the past, these figures should be considered preliminary until the end of the year, as the US Mint has reserved the right to restart production within the year of issue based on demand.

Production for the Homestead National Monument of America Quarter reached 248.60 million pieces at Denver and 214.40 million pieces at Philadelphia for an overall total of 463 million. This figure is up from the previous release featuring Everglades National Park which had overall production of 300 million pieces.

The Harry S. Truman and Dwight D. Eisenhower Presidential Dollars each had 3.36 million pieces struck at Denver and 4.90 million pieces struck at Philadelphia for an overall total of 8.26 million pieces. This comes in slightly below the production of 8.68 million pieces for the prior design featuring Franklin D. Roosevelt, but matches the production levels of the next two prior releases featuring Coolidge and Hoover.

    Seven ER uncirculated gold coins arrive today. None is MS 70 under 10Xloupe. Three MS 69 and the rest have defects visible to naked eyes. I will return them to the mint noting defects. Hopefully, the Mint won’t resell my four retuned coins to someone else. Among the last batch sold over last weekend (about 98 coins), I suspect that more than 50% are coins with defects. If some of them are eventully returned to the Mint, ER uncirculated final mintage may be bleow 1900…

  2. D Rittenhouse says

    The Mint will eventually put the remaining 1000 on sale once their packaging arrives.

  3. MarkInFlorida says

    Many collectors don’t care if the coins are 70, 69 or whatever. We just keep them in OGP. When gold reaches $2000 or $3000 or $5000 an ounce they’ll all just be worth melt! (Remember when gold was $300 going down to $275 and people said gold would NEVER hit $1000 in our lifetime?)

    My 9 unc Eleanor Roosevelts got a ship notice today. When the 9 separate boxes arrive do you think I could just refuse to accept them? I have my doubts about them now, thanks for the heads up.

  5. Ends in Error says

    Ha ha, just kidding. I’m a box hoarder at heart. I’m not actually into Coins , just Coins in sealed boxes.


  6. D Rittenhouse says

    Sealed box is equivalent to proverbial pig in a poke. Have no idea where attraction/premium originates.

  7. Ends in Error says

    Sealed box = not picked over and possibly 70

    Open box = picked over and possibly 68 or lower

  8. Rick says

    Ends in Error : sealed box may not be a great idea in this case if the defect rate is high. If the buyer gets a coin with visible defects, he/she may leave negative feedback and return the coin. If the buyer gets a MS 70, you essentially misprice your coin. Just my two cents.

  9. says

    Ends in Error,
    Let me know if I have this correct: Because you keep your coins in sealed boxes, you actually never get to lay eyes on your Mint purchases.

  10. gary says

    The buying and selling and reselling of sealed boxes of coins is downright stupid. As much as you might unlikely get a coin that could grade 70 it will probably not and there is always the very real possibility the coins could be damaged or missing! A box that has seal broken or otherwise is sold in OGP in no way automatically infers that it is of inferior grade. Just as much chance for a 70 grade as if sent in for grading in a sealed box.

  11. Gary not Dave says

    @ gary
    some coins wont be graded with specific designations if the coins are not received in the shipping box it comes from the Mint….so stupid?…not really…..just wild and crazy!

  12. Dave SW FL says

    I would guess that most flippers are more interested in quickly turning a profit than cherry picking their coins. Most won’t spend the money to get their coins graded . I suppose some are qualified graders, but most just wanna make a quick buck.
    I have purchased some stunningly beautiful coins on the bay.

    looking to buy some SE rolls today, who has the best price?, i’m concerned of the way things are playing out in the mideast

  14. SilverFan says

    If you sell a US Mint sealed box to someone and they open it, don’t they now have your name and address?

  15. merryxmasmrscrooge says

    The ’55 double date MS 65. Really? and 2 4 Sale??
    Highly unlikely. Seems like a scam or someone with
    Altzheimer’s who doesn’t know how to use a camera.
    Can’t see the double date.
    Maybe that’s why no one is bidding.

  16. CasualCollector says

    Yes — inside the sealed US Mint box is a sheet with the order information (along with your Name and Address). I guess it would make a difference if your eBay Shipping Name/Address is different than what you use to order from the US Mint.
