Collectors will have to spend more this year to get new quarter products made and sold by the United States Mint. There are also changes in product offerings.

U.S. Mint prices will be higher for rolls of quarters, bags of quarters, and proof sets showcasing quarters — both clad and silver.

The product adjustments relate to the rolls and bags and explain their higher prices. The quarters’ quality changed to uncirculated from circulating. More care is taken in producing uncirculated coins as they are hand-loaded into coining presses and are struck on specially burnished blanks. Older rolls and bags of quarters contain regular circulating strikes like those found in general circulation — they were simply pulled from production floors before getting bagged and shipped for everyday transactions.

In another change to the product line, the U.S. Mint is no longer selling San Francisco-minted quarters in bags, and rolls of them will only be available as a part of a three-roll set. The Mint will continue to offer rolls and bags of quarters from the Philadelphia and Denver Mints.

Kicking off the Mint’s four-year series of American Women Quarters™, this year’s five uniquely designed quarters celebrate Maya Angelou, Dr. Sally Ride, Wilma Mankiller, Nina Otero-Warren, and Anna May Wong. (See images of the 2022 quarters.)

Along with rolls and bags of each coin, with the first release of Maya Angelou quarters on Monday, Feb. 7, the Mint will also sell all five quarters together in custom-packaged proof sets.

Proof sets hold coins that feature frosted designs and mirror-like backgrounds. Proofs are the highest quality coin produced by the Mint. The clad 2022 American Women Quarters Proof Set launches March 8 and the 99.9% fine 2022 American Women Quarters Silver Proof Set is available March 29. The price increase of the silver set is most noticeable.

Finally, the U.S. Mint will offer five holiday ornaments containing a 2022 quarter. How they will compare to the pair released in 2021, aside from price, is unknown as of this writing.

Product options and pricing for the 2022 quarter products include:

40-coin rolls San Francisco $19.75 N/A

And $30 bucks worth of Quarters cost $54.00 plus shipping – this is why I simply quit the US Mint

My conundrum is should I buy a three rolls purchase or an uncirculated and proof set, which costs less? Also, how am I going to unload all those coins in a roll if I only need one of each. I’d rather buy one from a dealer after the prices stabilize.

Rich

Antonio, maybe your conundrum is a riddle, wrapped in a mystery, inside an enigma.

I haven’t purchased any medals from Mint since it skyrocketed prices 🙁

Chris Terp

Kaiser, U.S. Mint stated they wanted to be more in line with other mints pricings around world who charge more for their medals (and coins). Other mints around globe routinely offer sale prices at deep discounts throughout year where our Mint just keeps same high prices. U.S. Mint needs to come back to reality and decide if they want to help encourage coin collecting with low to medium pricings for their products or if just want to gouge market and put brakes on folks’ interest in coin collecting. Strict household limits can prevent hoarding to afford access to more buyers… Read more »

EXZZZZZACTLY Kaiser. Foreign mints produce much lower volume with many of their gold & silver collector coins.

Kaiser, I totally agree. I have to remind myself that at the end of the day it’s just very overpriced metal. $160 for 3-inch bronze, no mint mark, is crazy. I was excited about the new quarters until I saw the prices. Same goes for the myriad number of other product series. I regret ordering the NLB 2-coin set and the privy dollar when it first launched but am happy I did not jump on the ASE enrollment train. I plan to be done with my Mint purchases this year. It’s all too much.

Sir Kaiser, is this the End of the Line
Trains don’t run forever
Fire goes out sometime
Gotta tell you, baby
We’ve come to the end of the line
Pages of yesterday
Fill this book of mine
Gotta tell you, baby
It is the end of the line
I can’t remember those good old days
They are from a different time
I gotta tell you, baby
We’ve come to the end of the line
