Tomorrow, September 20, 2011 at 12:00 Noon ET, the US Mint will begin sales of the America the Beautiful Quarter Three-Coin Set featuring Olympic National Park.
This will be the eighth release for the product type that was introduced in late 2010. The sets have been released every few months, throughout the year, covering the 2010 designs and moving on to the 2011 designs.
The Olympic Quarter Three Coin Set includes one uncirculated version of the coin from the Philadelphia Mint, one uncirculated version from the Denver Mint, and one proof version from the San Francisco Mint. The three coins are mounted on a plastic card, which include a description of the site and coin on the back.
These small sets are priced at $14.95, making them an expensive way to acquire the coins, which are also included in annual sets and some other products. The US Mint offers this product type through their subscription program, as well as through the typical sales channels.
All of the previous three coin sets still remain available for sale on the Mint’s website, from Hot Springs National Park to Glacier National Park. The most recent sales figures for each design appear below.
