Rolls of 2018-D, P, S Apostle Islands National Lakeshore Quarters

Rolls of 2018-D, P, & S Apostle Islands National Lakeshore Quarters

Early U.S. Mint sales figures have been published for new products depicting Wisconsin’s Apostle Islands National Lakeshore. 

Released last week on Monday, April 9, the Apostle Islands quarter is the second of five 2018-dated issues. Available products include rolls and bags of quarters from Philadelphia, Denver and San Francisco with mint marks of ‘P’, ‘D’ and ‘S’.

The amount sold through the first seven days combined to 1,849,140 quarters. Early sales for other recent quarter designs reached:

  • 1,835,280 for the 2018 Pictured Rocks quarter (Michigan)
  • 1,907,680 for the 2017 George Rogers Clark quarter (Indiana)
  • 1,902,180 for the 2017 Ellis Island quarter (New Jersey)
  • 1,887,900 for the 2017 Ozark Riverways quarter (Missouri)
  • 2,009,180 for the 2017 Frederick Douglas quarter (DC)
  • 1,890,460 for the 2017 Effigy Mounts quarter (Iowa)

The U.S. Mint’s newest 5-ounce collectible was its best individual weekly seller. Bearing the same designs as the Apostle Islands quarter, the 3-inch coin launched on Friday, April 13. The collectible posted an opening three-day total of 13,954 coins for one of the better starts in the series — perhaps best when considering its release late in the week. For comparison, other recent 5-ounce issues opened with sales of:

  • 13,952 coins for the 2018 Pictured Rocks 5 oz. (Michigan) over three days
  • 14,612 coins for the 2017 George Rogers Clark 5 oz. (Indiana) over four days
  • 14,642 coins for the 2017 Ellis Island 5 oz. (New Jersey) over six days
  • 13,740 coins for the 2017 Ozark Riverways 5 oz. (Missouri) over six days
  • 13,761 coins for the 2017 Frederick Douglass 5 oz. (DC) over six days
  • 14,363 coins for the 2017 Effigy Mounds 5 oz. (Iowa) over six day

Mike Unser,
Thank you again for the report. What was really interesting was the sales for the George Rogers Clark 5 oz of 14612 over 4 days and that only 14731 total have sold. So, a large number of sales, for this series, must be from subscriptions. This should mean the “Clark” is the “key” to this series from the sales number.

Last week I received my order of the Apostle Island ATB 5 oz Uncircuilated silver coin. I am impressed again at the quality of the design and strike….very few issues in this series have failed to impress.

I look forward to completing this precedent setting (for the US Mint) set in a few short years.

I commend the folks at the US Mint for bringing us collectors a great themed product in the 5 oz. Uncirculated size and finish.
