D.C. & U.S. Territories Quarters First Day Coin Covers Sales Completion

by CoinNews.net on June 29, 2010 · 0 comments

The United States Mint will end sales for all six D.C. and U.S. Territories Quarters First Day Coin Covers on Wednesday, June 30, 2010 at 5:00 pm Eastern Time.

2009 D.C. and U.S. Territories Quarters First Day Coin Covers

The U.S. Mint published a last chance product page at its online store in mid-May which listed the coin covers discontinued date and time, which followed the June 15, 2010 ending availability of its 2009 Lincoln cents and related products.

Each of the covers feature an attractive display card containing two quarters –one each from the United States Mint facilities at Philadelphia and Denver– that were struck on the first day of their mintage, and a U.S. Flag postage stamp with a postmark showcasing when the coins were released to the public.

The following table contains the issue dates, maximum mintage limits and the latest quarters coin cover sales figures as of Sunday, June 27. These are likely to be the final figures provided by the U.S. Mint this year, as it seldom offers updated unaudited numbers after a product is taken off sale.

The U.S. Mint has said that it will not offer coin covers for the new series, although it has added three America the Beautiful Quarters Sets to its product portfolio.
