Today, April 23, the U.S. Mint released the 2015 Kisatchie National Forest Quarters Three-Coin Set. Quarters of the set commemorate the national site in Louisiana.
This latest America the Beautiful Quarter Three-Coin Set is the second issued this year, and it’s the 27th overall in the series.
Kisatchie quarters entered circulation on April 14, 2015 and the United States Mint started selling circulating-quality rolls and bags of them on Monday. Quarters in this set are not in circulating quality, but instead, they are specially produced for coin collectors. They include:
- one uncirculated coin from the U.S. Mint facility in Denver,
- one uncirculated coin from the U.S. Mint facility in Philadelphia, and
- one proof coin from the U.S. Mint facility in San Francisco.
Marks of D, P or S on the quarters denote their origin of production, and each mintmark is on the right side of George Washington’s portrait and under the inscription, IN GOD WE TRUST.
As seen in the topmost image, all three Kisatchie National Forest Quarters are presented on a durable plastic card that has a picturesque photo of the site. On the back of the card is information about the national forest, the three coins and their designs, and a certificate of authenticity.
Pricing is $9.95, the same as the previous 21 sets and $5 less than the first 5 from 2010. All but one set from the series remains available. The 2012 El Yunque Quarter Three-Coin Set sold out at 19,891. Available U.S. Mint figures for the others show their sales range from to 10,907 to 23,513.
