Today, March 3, 2015, the United States Mint began accepting orders for the America the Beautiful Quarters Three Coin Set featuring the Homestead National Monument of America Quarter.
The Homestead Quarters were first released into circulation on February 9, 2015. This was followed by the official launch ceremony held the following day on February 10, 2015 when attendees were allowed to exchange currency for rolls of the new quarters. Finally, on February 24, 2015, the US Mint opened sales for bags and rolls containing the circulating quality quarters.
The reverse design of the coin carries the objects representing the three fundamentals of survival common to all homesteaders: food, water, and shelter. This was designed by Ronald D. Sanders and engraved by Jim Licaretz. The obverse design carries the 1932 portrait of George Washington designed by John Flanagan.
The Homestead National Monument of America Quarter Three Coin Set contains one uncirculated example of the quarter from the Philadelphia Mint, one uncirculated example from the Denver Mint, and one proof example from the San Francisco Mint. These three coins are mounted on a durable plastic card containing an illustration from the park on the front and issuance information on the page.
The price for each set is $9.95. There is no stated product limit or household ordering limit imposed.
This is the first America the Beautiful Quarters Three Coin Set released for this year. The prior year sets have cumulative sales totals ranging from a low of 12,691 for the Great Sand Dunes design to a high of 18,337 for the Great Smoky Mountains design.
