The Mount Hood Quarter had 34.4 million coins struck for circulation at each facility. This is around the same level as the other four issues for this year. The US Mint indicates that the figures for all 2010 America the Beautiful Quarters are still preliminary, as production for any design may be restarted during the year of issue to fulfill demand from the bulk purchase program.
The Abraham Lincoln Dollar had overall production for circulation of 97.02 million, made up of 48.02 million coins from Philadelphia and 49 million from Denver. This breaks the general trend of declining mintages for the series. The last coin in the series with a higher mintage was the ninth release featuring William Henry Harrison at 98.42 million.
