Mount Hood National Forest Quarter Bags and Rolls

Today marks the circulation release date for the Mount Hood National Forest Quarter. This coin is the last release of the America the Beautiful Quarters Program for this year. Although it has featured some pleasing designs, the lack of circulation has kept the series out of the spotlight.

The US Mint is offering numismatic bags and rolls of the coins. These are priced at relatively steep premiums to face value, considering the fact that they are simply circulation strike coins in special packaging. The bags containing 100 coins from the Philadelphia or Denver Mint are priced at $35.95. The two rolls sets containing 40 coins from each mint are priced at $32.95.

The Mount Hood Quarter is apparently still in production since preliminary mintages have not yet been provided. Production for each design of the series has been around 70 million each, which does seem enticingly low compared to the high levels for the previous State Quarters series.

A launch ceremony will be held at the World Forestry Center in Portland, Oregon on November 17.
