April is set to be the most active month so far this year for collector products issued by the United States Mint.
Kicking off the first week of the month are U.S. Mint products featuring the first 2012 Presidential dollar coin and the second 2012 America the Beautiful Quarter.
Beginning on Monday, rolls and bags of Chaco Culture National Historical Park Quarters will be released. Two-roll sets of 80 quarters — 40 minted in Denver and 40 from Philadelphia — go on sale for $32.95, which is $7 less than last year. Buyers will also have an option of purchasing 100-coin bags from either location for $34.95, which is $15 lower than last year’s bags.
When launched, the quarters honoring the national park in New Mexico may be purchased through the U.S. Mint website from this product page.
On Thursday, 25-coin rolls containing Chester Arthur Presidential dollars will be available. Rolls filled with either Philadelphia or Denver minted $1 coins will be priced at $32.95, which is $7 less than the still-for-sale dollar coin rolls from 2011. Since Presidential dollars are no longer produced for general circulation, U.S. Mint rolls will be a main source for them. (Additional $1 coin products will be released by the Mint at a yet unannounced date.)
Each of the new products will be available on their respective issue date beginning at 12:00 noon ET.
For reference, the following grid offers a listing of U.S. Mint scheduled product releases during the second, third and fourth week of April:
