Today, Oct. 6, the United States Mint released the 2015 Bombay Hook Quarters Three-Coin Set. Quarters of the set commemorate the national wildlife refuge in Delaware.
This latest America the Beautiful Quarters Three-Coin Set is the fourth one this year, and it is the 29th overall in the program.
Bombay Hook quarters entered circulation on Sept. 14, 2015 and the U.S. Mint started selling rolls and bags of them in circulating-quality on Wednesday, Sept. 30. Coins of 3-coin set, however, are struck in finishes favored by 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.
Mint marks of D, P or S are on the obverse (heads side) of each quarter, denoting their mint of origin. These mint marks appear 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 quarters are presented on a durable plastic card that has a picturesque photo of Bombay Hook National Wildlife Refuge. The back side of the card offers information about the refuge, the three coins and their designs, and a U.S. Mint certificate of authenticity.
Pricing is $9.95, the same as the previous 23 sets and $5 less than the first 5 from 2010. Most of these older sets remain on sale. Figures for them show their sales range from 12,037 to 23,804.
