Homestead National Monument of America Quarter Three Coin Set

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.

Homestead Set

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.

    The price cut throating has begun on feebay for the 2014 First Spouse Bronze set…. Pre-sale good luck sellers // hope your orders get shipped…I have learned that a little patience usually wins. Sold half of my enhanced sacs way to cheap. I could be wrong, but i will wait until i actually get mine in hand and these presellers have sold all they have.

    @Mark

    I too am waiting on some sets, I posted earlier in the week inquiry if anyone had received the 2014 spouse medals from Feb 10th. I believe someone earlier posted the backorder date for those coins, do you recall that date.

    On topic… the only purchase of the ATB’s I will do is some “S” mint and the 5 oz silvers.

  3. D Rittenhouse says

    These 3-coin sets almost never sell out. You can still purchase the 3-coin sets issued for the first 5 AtB coins back in 2010. I can find only two exceptions:
    N81 – 2012 El Yunque National Forest (Puerto Rico) – not found in the Mint’s online catalog;
    N84 – 2012 Volcanoes National Park (Hawaii) – listed as Out of Stock.

  4. Mark says

    If they still had the bronze sets…that backorder date would always be changing. Just like all their other backorder products.

  5. Brad says

    Mark,

    I think there’s actually a chance that the backordered 2014 FS bronze medal sets WILL ship. I’ve been checking the product pretty regularly, and there have been a few brief windows of opportunity where ordering was possible again for a small number of sets, likely due to a previous order being cancelled for some reason. During those few times, the backorder date had actually moved to Tues March 10. Just yesterday, it was possible to order one set for a few minutes, until someone snapped it up.

    I saw what you meant about the falling prices. I saw a guy on there selling in-hand sets for only $69, and pre-sales for $49. They were selling like hotcakes. I figure he’s trying to get out before the value completely erodes. However, the new supply might only amount to around 2,500 sets or so, for a total of 10,000 available. It’s still not a large number by any stretch of the imagination, and prices may rebound some once the new supply dries up.

    I have some on order too, so I guess we’ll both find out what happens!

  6. Mark says

    Brad,, yea , that guy has made a ton of these sets. Was getting as high as $220.00 a set not to long ago. And recently getting $99.00 and just chugging along quite nicely at that price. If we all could just keep our prices around that $99.00 range. We all would sell out over time. But some people just have to get that credit card paid off A.S.A.P.

  7. MLA says

    Have I missed it??????
    The sale report has not been updated or what – for this week!!!!!!!

  8. Brad says

    MLA,

    Yeah, I don’t know what’s going on there. The mint had the new numbers on the Excel spreadsheet on Monday afternoon. Maybe someone was asleep at the switch!

    If anybody’s interested, at the time of this writing there are only 87 Florence Harding proof coins left, and there were that many yesterday morning too. Adding that to the number sold on the Excel spreadsheet through Sunday, it would place her a few coins below Eleanor for the lowest mintage proof thus far. I don’t really think it will matter (since Eleanor is much more popular), plus this makes it seem that all four of the 2014 proof mintages was 2,400, less returns. So, they will all four end up within a few coins of each other. Such a miniscule difference will likely be overridden by popularity.

    Raw Eleanor proofs have been fetching close to $1,200 recently, but I doubt Florence will follow suit.

  9. KEITHSTER says

    Seems to be a lot of funny stuff going on with those 2014 Bronze Sets? They should have shipped by now unless they are pressing out another ship load hope not don’t need them around for years like the others! Was thinking That they had found a lost box or it shows on the inventory but has since gone missing? Anyone know how many they can get in the full box they store them in? Someone had said at the time they had maybe 500 left and that sounds about right if they can find them? So please ship them already my 10 sets were ordered on the 10th. have seen on this blog one backorder for 40 and another for maybe 110 so any one else have a large backorder on them? Did get My three coin set today but did have to go pick it up at UPS after two failed tries at delivery I signed up for will call first time I had to do that had to leave work a little early but made it so not that bad if I have to do it again:>:>:> Also was able to pickup 4 rolls of the Homestead quarters in D at the bank today had that feeling they might be in and they were 🙂 Held in the sun the house seems to have the prism effect like the tree did red blue&green must have used the lazer on them die’s also? here’s To Your Luck All:>:>:>:>:>:>:>:>:>:>

    Life hasn’t changed all that much – everyone, not just the homesteaders, need food, water, and shelter. I have driven through Nebraska – it is actually a very pretty state and most of its life is not too far removed from the Platte River. Some of you may already know the patriotism of the townspeople in North Platte during WW II.

  11. Ralph says

    Brad: Your statement has proven once again the uselessness of the “remind me” button. When the 2014 1st Spouse Set’s went back to OOS on 2/12, I entered my email address into the “remind me” button. And as you mentioned, they were available again and I did not receive a “remind me” from the Mint.

  12. Ralph says

    PM’s are heading up.
    Speculation: They are going to climb today. See you in 24 hours!

    I ordered a Homestead National Monument of America 5 oz bullion coin from Provident metals during their presale period. The coin was badly scratched when it arrived today in the mail. The only time I’ve had problems since 2010 with any ATB 5 oz bullion coin we’re when I bought for Provident, and that was only two other times. I’m going to stick with AMPEX from here on out, even paying a little more their coins have been top notched, sent in an airtite.

    Live and learn…

  14. Tinto says

    @Ralph

    Yeah, I used the remind me button once and all I’ve gotten is an email blitz from the Mint for their upcoming products. Like someone on this blog mentioned before, the Mint seems to have used the email information to send out their “offerings” nothing more.

  15. thePhelps says

    I believe the “remind me button” is only useful if the item goes back in stock. I think many are ignoring the fact that almost all of the items you have used the button for – have gone from OOS to backordered – and have not gone to in stock. Want to test it out… use it for the 5 ounce Homelystead offering.

  16. Sith says

    @MGM – The ATB’s I got from APMEX coins were in bad shape, but definitely not scratched. This ATB seems to be a bad batch so hold your expectations low.

  17. thePhelps says

    Last year Provident started out not even offering the bullion ATB’s because of the quality issues. There is little they can do when the mint is doing little to control the poor quality of the coins.

  18. mgm says

    the Phelps,

    Yes, an age old problem. It seems like the first ATB 5 ozer of the year is always the worst. They must get knocked around a punch at the mint before they get shipped.

  19. Dave SW FL says

    Mgm
    My Glades puck from Ampex was scratched, unfortunately on the Glades side. It is nice, however, to get them in the airtite.

    Phelps
    The Sac C&C came back in stock and as I recall NOBODY got a mint reminder.

    Lesson : depend on this blog for the most up to date mint info.

    A big thank you to all who participate here!

  20. Brad says

    I always buy my bullion ATB’s from APMEX. However, I never even get to see the Washington side of them anymore, since I never want to take them out of those sealed plastic bags they now send them in. I like the way the bag lists the name of the coin and the company name on them. Opening them would almost feel like breaking a seal or something, even though I know it’s not official or anything. However, only one side of the bag is transparent, the other side with the product info is white. They’re always sure to pack them in the bag so the park side is visible, at least on all the ones I’ve ever received.

    Why APMEX doesn’t just put the product info on a white banner above the bag seal and make both sides of the bag itself transparent, I don’t know. Maybe they’ll get around to that eventually.

    Hey Mint….WAKE UP!!!! POST NUMBERS….

    The excel spreadsheet is showing negative numbers in places that we be revised to positive…

    From the Mint’s Web page “Figures are posted weekly by 5 p.m. (ET) Tuesdays to reflect sales demand through the previous Sunday, starting on June 18, 2013.”

  22. cagcrisp says

    @Brad, I’m going to buy some Turkey pucks from APMEX. Explain more about the quantity you have to buy to get them the way you describe…

  23. D Rittenhouse says

    BTW, I recently noticed the Mint has removed nearly all (except 4) of its Youtube videos (username: USMINT) from public access. The older videos haven’t been deleted, exactly. Instead, they’ve been marked “private” as can be seen when you try to view the video linked from this Mint webpage:
    http://www.usmint.gov/anniversary/

    I wonder which Mint moron thought this would be a good idea?

  24. fmtransmitter says

    Starving Liberty zombuck showed along with some year of the Ram rounds. Did an excellent job with quality and price IMO…

  25. Brad says

    Cag,

    I’ve always bought singles when they arrive in the polybags. I would guess that in order to guarantee receiving them that way, you would need to order less than 10, or a quantity that is not divisible by 10. They state that quantities of 10 will be shipped in Mint tubes without capsules. However, they do have a “special request” field when placing your online order where you could say that you prefer to receive them ALL in capsules and polybags instead of a tube. They would probably honor that request, but you’d have to ask them to be sure.

  26. cagcrisp says

    Gross contribution to the Marshal museum by weeks:

    Week 1 $1,473,751.00
    Week 2 $300,436.00
    Week 3 $240,874.00
    Week 4 $156,016.00
    Week 5 $58,827.00
    Total $2,229,904

    The 3 coin set is Gone in Week 6 so that is another $20,880. The introductory pricing probably got some additional attention especially on the clads. $3 a pop on the clads is Not going to get much money… I would say 90-95% of all the Golds have now been sold…

    I still think a Gross of $2.5 million is Possible, but that’s about it…

  27. Brad says

    Yeah, and the Eleanor Roosevelt proof gold coin too!

    Now though, it seems the Mint only uses the “sold out” status on items they end sales of intentionally, like “last chance” items or the ATB bags and rolls.

  28. Goat says

    Some of you talking about pucks (Homestead bullion) , poor quality and not finding any listed that have been graded. Is this a sign if you find one that is very good it could turn into gold?

  29. cagcrisp says

    Yesterday there were 5 Gold BHOF coins Sold in OGP. In the previous 12 days there were a Total of 5 Gold BHOF coins Sold in OGP…

    Moderncoinmart $270.00 THE FIRST //// 2015 5 oz. .999 fine silver Homestead ATB NGC MS69 DPL Mint State 69 Deep Proof Like First Day of Issue ***NEW ARRIVAL***

  31. gary says

    I’m sure that the authorized bullion dealers who resell the ATB bullion 5 oz. are pretty bright boys and certainly know what the third party graded potential is for a holy grail 70 is. It is for that reason that when they offer them for good bullion prices one might expect to get an inferior item. I see that MCM is now selling Homesteads in a reduced size holder. The TPG company probably came out with the new holder with the idea of increasing their profits to beholder the “old” issues. Seems there is no end in this plastic & first issue nonsense!

  32. says

    When you enter the Mint website, click on the left side for upcoming product. Then on the right you will see a series of page numbers and all. Click on all. There I found the issue date information for the FS one half ounce gold wives. April 16 Elizabeth Trumen, May 7 Mamie Eisenhower, June Jacqueline Kennedy, Augest Claudia Johnson. The 3 coin MOD set May 5. Most other upcoming items are listed. Only a few at the end have TBD. If you use the list at the top of the initial page it does not have this information.

  33. gary says

    Just might be a good time to load up on those Homestead ATB bullion coins. If one grades 70 it will go for big $$$ if a 69 is worth $270

  34. JOSEPH says

    Wonder how your guys knew how many coins left??? you got the number from Mint customer services ?? really want to know.

    If anybody’s interested, at the time of this writing there are only 87 Florence Harding proof coins left, and there were that many yesterday morning too. Adding that to the number sold on the Excel spreadsheet through Sunday, it would place her a few coins below Eleanor for the lowest mintage proof thus far. I don’t really think it will matter (since Eleanor is much more popular), plus this makes it seem that all four of the 2014 proof mintages was 2,400, less returns. So, they will all four end up within a few coins of each other. Such a miniscule difference will likely be overridden by popularity.

  36. Brad says

    Joseph,

    It’s the old “add 99 to your cart” trick. If there are less than that available, it will display the number left in red as “XX Item(s) in stock.” By the way, now there are only 86 Florence Harding proofs left.

    Don’t ask customer service anything, they’re worthless. You can talk to six different people within 15 minutes and get six different answers. They’re completely clueless.

  37. Brad says

    Hawkster,

    Ha ha! The Florence Harding proof countdown will probably take 3+ months and span 30+ MNB posts! And that’s being generous, probably.

  38. TonyW says

    Off subject – Last Saturday 2/28 I ordered the 3 coin Marshall set – silver quarters – and finally the FDR set that had the silver medal –

    I RECIECED my order TODAY!! That’s 4 days – wow what great service from the mint!!!!!!!
