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.
