I can’t seem to find the “S” mintmark holes in any of my folders……….

How many S Mint Quarters is the U.S.Mint coming out with or is it a one time deal? I bought a U.S.Mint America The Beautiful book when they came out. What a waste. As if they didn”t know. Who are they kidding.

Nevermind I found the answer to my ?.

Any “America The Beautiful” program quarter folder made before this year is obsolete, because this is the first year that the San Francisco Mint circulation coins have been made. New folders are being made to accomodate the (5) San Francisco coins beginning in 2012. This is an unfair action on behalf of the U.S. Mint, in that they went ahead and made the S-Mint coins without the consent or feedback from collectors who have already shelled out good money for their P & D only folders. Some folders are already available which have a hole for S-Mint proofs, but to have a “complete” year set, five slots for each issue is necessary (Philadelphia, Denver, San Francisco Clad, San Francisco Silver Proof, San Francisco Clad Proof). This is the third year of the ATB program, and 56 total issues will be made. So by the end of the 11-year “America The Beautiful” National Parks and National Sites Quarters Program, your complete collection will have some 260 coins, and should weigh approximately four pounds! Let’s not even begin to consider the 5-ounce ATB Bullion Quarters!
