The United States Mint on Thursday updated its 2012 numismatic schedule, adding a handful of products for release in March, April and May.
Major releases include the Star-Spangled Banner commemorative coins which celebrate the bicentennial of the writing of American national anthem, issuance of the Chaco Culture National Historical Park Quarters for New Mexico and the Kennedy half-dollars.
A new product appears to be revealed as well, and is simply named the "2012 Birth Set."
A listing of the updated schedule along with expected release dates follows:
|03/05||Star-Spangled Banner Commemorative Coins|
|03/13||2012 Birth Set|
|04/02||American the Beautiful Quarters Bags and Two-Roll Set – Chaco Culture|
|04/03||America the Beautiful Quarters Uncirculated Coin Set™|
|04/17||American the Beautiful Quarters Three-Coin Set™ – Chaco Culture|
|05/15||Kennedy Half-Dollar Two-Roll Set and 200-Coin Bag|
|TBD||Presidential $1 Coin Rolls – Chester Arthur|
|TBD||United States Mint Presidential $1 Coin Proof Set|
|TBD||Presidential $1 Coin Uncirculated Set|
As the grid indicates, release dates are yet to be determine for Chester Arthur Presidential $1 Coin Rolls, the Presidential $1 Coin Proof Set and the Presidential $1 Coin Uncirculated Set. In January, the U.S. Mint initially had the Arthur $1 rolls and proof set scheduled for release on February 16 and February 23, respectively. Their change is a reminder that the Mint’s product schedule is always subject to change.
