Dates of circulation have coincided with when the United States Mint offers corresponding rolls and bags of the quarter for sale to the public and often mark the day, at least later in the year, when 3-inch silver versions of the quarter, the America the Beautiful Five Ounce Silver Bullion Coin, are made available to the Mint’s network of bullion dealers.

More details about the five quarters for 2014 is becoming available with clad and silver proof sets featuring them just released and the rollout for first coin beginning next week.

ATB designs….they started with a triumphant thunder heard across the world coin market. Before the echoes of that thunder had subsided, the US Mint introduced us to simply gorgeous five ounce versions of these glimmering designs. For good measure, the US Mint version from Philly had a frosted finish which simply stunned in visual effect. The depth of the design cuts created shadows across the coin mostly seen in vintage St Gaudens sculptures.
Suddenly, another flourish was added to the designs, and multiple finishes were implemented on the bullion examples sold to bulk dealers.
That, as it turned out, would reveal that bullion in the hands of US Mint personnel was ANYTHING BUT simple bullion. Have you seen the Hawaii 5 Oz ATB? Whoa, now that’s something altogether singularly special.
Now in the fifth linear year of production, the Annual 25 cent Proof and Uncirculated ATB quarters have become a standout in the history of US Quarters. The 5OZ ATB issues will be the most collected set of coins ever before this run is finished in 2021 or so.
This is Sunday, and tomorrow the Blue Ridge issues will be sold starting at 12 noon. If these are like previous issues, there are DMPL in the early issues, both rolls and bags. And the three coin sets have some special and crisp strikes. Even the circulating issues are beginning to take on a shine of their own, with clean strikes in those issues as well. My clad Proof ATB early releases had multiple struck thru coins, adding a nuance to my collection all it’s own. I almost got a complete five coin set, as I ordered on the first day. The early bird does get the worm.
Order early and often, and find in your possession some of the greatest issues of US Quarters ever struck. Make some sets for your family and become a hero later. Good luck, and know that you will NOT have to hunt and peck for pristine examples of ATB coins, no matter which option you choose.
