Today, Dec. 1, the United States Mint started selling three-coin sets of Saratoga quarters. Coins of the set commemorate the national historical park in New York.
This latest America the Beautiful Quarters Three-Coin Set is the fifth and final one for this year, and it is the 30th overall in the series.
Saratoga quarters entered circulation on Nov. 16, 2015, and the U.S. Mint just released rolls and bags of them in circulating-quality. Quarters of the three-coin set, however, are not like these. Instead, they are minted in finishes preferred by coin collectors. They include:
- One uncirculated coin from the U.S. Mint facility in Denver with a ‘D’ mint mark.
- One uncirculated coin from the U.S. Mint facility in Philadelphia with a ‘P’ mint mark.
- One proof coin from the U.S. Mint facility in San Francisco with a ‘S’ mint mark.
The mint marks appear on the right side of George Washington’s portrait and under the inscription, IN GOD WE TRUST.
All three coins are presented on a durable plastic card that has a picturesque photo of New York’s Saratoga National Historical Park. The back of the card offers information about the park, the three quarters and their designs, and a U.S. Mint certificate of authenticity.
Pricing is $9.95, which is the same as the previous 24 sets and $5 less than the first 5 from 2010. Most of these older sets are still currently available as well. Figures for them show their sales range from 10,116 to 23,890.
