by Mike Unser on February 27, 2019 · 1 comment

The United States kicked off sales last week of two collector products — a 5-coin set of 2019 silver quarters and a 3-coin set of 2019 Lowell National Historical Park quarters. The pair of sets were the U.S. Mint’s top weekly sellers.

Coins of the product series are struck and issued by the U.S. Mint as part of its America the Beautiful Quarters® Program. The series debuted in 2010 and features five new quarters annually with each celebrating a different site of national interest. One site for the program was chosen from each state, the District of Columbia and the five U.S. territories.

Released Tuesday, Feb. 19, the three-coin set of Lowell quarters for Massachusetts includes uncirculated quarters from the Philadelphia and Denver Mints and a proof quarter from the San Francisco Mint. It posted six-day sales of 10,668 for the best start among series issues since 2016. As comparisons, the past ten releases opened with sales of:

  • 10,176 sets for Pictured Rocks in Michigan,
  • 10,508 sets for George Rogers Clark in Indiana,
  • 10,513 sets for Ellis Island in New Jersey,
  • 9,821 sets for Ozark Riverways in Missouri,
  • 9,415 sets for Frederick Douglass National Historic Site in DC,

Tomorrow, Friday March 1, the U.S. Mint will be giving away a free coin with the purchase of the annual clad Proof set. I don’t remember them giving away a free coin since 1996 with the free 1996-W Roosevelt dime in the annual Uncirculated Mint set.
