To coincide with the circulation release date, the United States Mint began sales of Yellowstone National Park Quarter bags and two roll sets today at 12:00 Noon ET. These products contain circulation quality examples of the latest release in the America the Beautiful Quarters Program.
The two roll sets include one 40-coin roll from the Philadelphia Mint and one 40-coin roll from the Denver Mint. The coins are packaged in custom designed wrappers, which are branded with the US Mint logo and indicate the park, state, mint mark, and face value of the contents. These two roll sets are priced at $32.95 each.
The US Mint also offered 100-coin bags of the Yellowstone National Park Quarters from either the Philadelphia or Denver Mint. The mint-sewn canvas bags include a label which indicates “Yellowstone”, the state abbreviation “WY”, the mint mark, and face value of the contents. The bags are priced at $35.95 each.
Orders with the US Mint are subject to an additional shipping and handling charge of $4.95. These products can be found online at http://catalog.usmint.gov/
