Grand Canyon Quarter Launches

Yesterday September 20, 2010 was the official circulation release date for the Grand Canyon National Park Quarter. This is the fourth coin in the series of America the Beautiful Quarters which began earlier this year.

On the same date, the US Mint began sales of their bags and rolls containing the quarters. Although the Grand Canyon Quarters contained in these bags and rolls are the same quality as those issued for circulation, the US Mint sells them at a premium. The 100-coin bags ($25 face value) are sold at $35.95 each and the two roll sets ($20 face value) are sold at $32.95 each. All orders are also subject to a charge of $4.95 for shipping and handling.

Today, the official launch ceremony for the Grand Canyon National Park Quarter will be held. The ceremony will take place at the South Rim of the park between Hopi House and Verkamp’s Visitor Center. As customary, a coin exchange will be available for attendees following the ceremony.

Previously, the US Mint indicated the preliminary mintage figures for the Grand Canyon Quarter as 34.6 million Philadelphia Mint coins and 34.8 Denver Mint coins for a combined total of 69.4 million.
