Rolls and bags of uncirculated Nina Otero-Warren Quarters launch on Tuesday, Aug. 16, one day after they begin their journey for circulation. The coin marks the fourth from the U.S. Mint’s four-year American Women Quarters™ Program, a series that recognizes the contributions made by women to the history of the United States.

Most of the Nina Otero-Warren quarters are accounted for through earlier enrollments, meaning few will be available on release.

Issued as a part of the Mint’s Armed Forces Silver Medal series, the U.S. Air Force 1 Ounce Silver Medal also goes on sale Aug. 16. Priced at $65 and without limits, the matte finish collectible is a companion to the no-longer-available 2.5-ounce version which debuted in July 2021.

Limited to 75,000, this medal complements the no-longer-available 2021-W $100 Proof American Liberty Gold Coin. Both share the design of a wild American Mustang horse, bucking off a western-style saddle.

What a rich week for Mint releases this promises to be. Get your credit cards ready to go!

Larry

What are you smoking? You can buy are the coins/medals you want, my CC’s will remain in my wallet!

Jeff Legan

Hi Larry, When I read Kaiser Wilhelm’s post, I do not get the impression he said he is buying these (he said “your”). If I am correct, 2/3 of your post is pointless or incorrect. You could have just said “My CC’s will remain in my wallet!” and made your point quite well. If you wanted to, you could even tell us why you are not interested. Unless I actually missed one or more, I did not see any insults or put downs here yesterday. Even you and Kaiser Wilhelm had some nice exchanges yesterday. From a recent post Kaiser… Read more »

Kaiser Wilhelm

Larry, My initial impulse regarding your latest rude and idiotic remark was to respond in kind and treat you like the immature and ignorant doofus you apparently cannot help yourself trying your best to be. Unfortunately, it’s becoming ever more apparent that for all I know you may in fact genuinely inhabit the entire gamut of those low grade intellectuality and personality traits and more, but that is really neither my concern nor my problem. I do feel bad for Jeff Legan considering how thoughtfully and kindly he went to bat for you when I had begun to compare you… Read more »

Jeff Legan

Two steps forward, one step back. Nobody changes instantly, Kaiser Wilhelm. I was hoping you would not respond to this and give Larry time to show if he is genuinely changing his behavior here, or not. “What are you smoking?” is pretty mild compared to the past, am I correct?
Well Larry, the ball is in your court now. Please do not make it two steps back. Give Kaiser Wilhelm the time to change his mind. I am guessing it will take years (it took years to get here), but every journey starts with a single step.

Kaiser Wilhelm

Jeff Legan,

Frankly, I regretted my response as soon as I posted it, but alas, we aren’t equipped with text erasers here. “What are you smoking?” wasn’t a big enough deal for me to go overboard, and I realized I had let my defensiveness outweigh my good sense.

No need to put this on Larry, Jeff; I’ll keep in mind that while he does have a tendency to set me off occasionally, unlike with senza (who is off in a universe all his own) I can at least try to reason with Larry.

Jeff Legan

Thanks, Kaiser Wilhelm. Posts like this one are the reason I like you. SENZA could have never done this.

Kaiser Wilhelm

You’re very welcome, Jeff Legan.

In return, my sincere gratitude to you for your consistently conscientious and equally timely assistance to me regarding being able to do better at separating this and other threads’ sometimes just a bit gritty wheat from their completely unconscionable chaff.

Jeff Legan

You are welcome, in return.

Kaiser Wilhelm

This could, I suppose, be carried on forever. 😉

Kaiser Wilhelm

Sheesh, who wrote this stuff? Not my finest hour!

SENZA

Even when I’m not here your a babbling MORON, attention seeking charlatan and pathetic Turd

CHARLATAN :one making usually showy pretenses to knowledge or ability : A TRUE FRAUD AND FAKE a charlatan is willing to do and say virtually anything to remain in the spotlight

You have taken every cheap shot possible at anyone who contributes, plays well and shares with other’s because you crave the spotlight – your despicable

SENZASENZA,
ThisThis isis aa duplicateduplicate ofof youryour postpost onon “Nina Otero-Warren Quarters Entering Circulation on Aug. 15” . RunningRunning outout ofof ideasideas??

Kaiser Wilhelm

Every time I re-examine my ill-conceived response to Larry’s innocuous remark I feel even worse about it. Clearly my all too familiar PTSD-fueled rage leapt out of its lair and commenced belching fire all over the page.

Larry, I guess I could have just said the good stuff, but the problem with that is (a) I gave that up decades ago and (b) from what I’m given to understand the current day legally grown and sold product puts our old hippy variety to shame.

Antonio

If I want something military, I’ll buy civil war tokens.

Kaiser Wilhelm

Sounds reasonable, logical and fair to me, Antonio. It’s great that with all the variety available there is always something for everyone’s different interests.

Kaiser Wilhelm

With my Teutonic background, I would more likely opt for heavy field artillery.

Rooster

I will only get the Air Force medal via enrollment.

Antonio

I was honorably discharged from the army. That’s all the military I care for.

Jeff Legan

Thank you for your service, Antonio. Based on the little I have learned of you so far through your comments, I would expect nothing less than the word “honorable” attached to your service. You always remain calm here. I do not think I have seen you get testy with anyone. Humor, not anger. I never served. I realized around age 17 that someone who tends to question everything is not a good fit for military service regardless of what other benefits I could bring along with me.

Antonio

You serve. You pay your taxes, are law abiding and serve on a jury when called upon. Each one serves and contributes in a different way.

Jeff Legan

Hahaha, I do all those things, but it is a waste of time showing up for the jury duty. Even when they call me for a trial, one of the lawyers always throws me off just based on my appearance. Once one of them asked me “Where did you go to school?” When I told him the name of the wealthy local school I attended, he said something like “I know your type”. I was thinking to myself there was no way you were expecting me to say that school name. You have no idea what my “type” is. As… Read more »

Antonio

I slept through mine, I was never called to a court room. You still served, and that’s honorable. Thank you for your service, and keeping our roads paved, and police on patrol, and the fire department ready to fight a fire when it breaks out, etc., etc.

Rich

… and the beat goes on

Kaiser Wilhelm

Good Sir Rich, Antonio, and Jeff Legan,

I must have been born with Perpetual Juror stamped on my forehead. Until I turned seventy (five years ago) I was repeatedly not just being summoned for but in fact ended up serving on one jury after another, even one for a Federal case of immigration fraud. Unfortunately, this doesn’t stay interesting forever, so as I approached the end of my mandatory eligibility I began to opt for any excuse I could come up with in order to be dismissed. Hasta la vista, baby!

Kaiser Wilhelm

I’ve never heard this before, Antonio, and I’m grateful you shared it.

Kaiser Wilhelm

Yes indeed, Antonio; Go Army! Until I came to this country at eighteen in 1965 the United States Army and its local facilities and services overseas was “America” for me, first in Occupied Austria and then in West Germany.

By way of explanation, that’s a typical depiction of the storied “Four Men In A Jeep.” From our left to right: American, British, French and Soviet. They patrolled all of Vienna together since unlike the rest of divided Occupied Austria the capital city, while also partitioned, was jointly policed.

Kaiser Wilhelm

That is a sharp looking medal; you can almost sense the jets whooshing by!

Rooster

Good description Kaiser!

Kaiser Wilhelm

Thanks, Rooster. I’m a really big aircraft fancier from way back, starting with the 1953 Trans-Atlantic flights we took on a TWA Super Constellation.

Rooster

TWA…wow that’s a blast from the past. I had to look up Super Constellation.

Kaiser Wilhelm

I loved flying on that glorious airplane, Rooster. I was able to take another round trip on it in 1959, but that was the last. The advent of the new 707s and the DC-8s was the death knell for the grand old prop planes, but the flying time each way was cut in half with the change.

Chris Terp

Right with ya Rooster. Picking up two of them: one for my collection, other for friend who served in that branch.

Navy guy myself and looking forward to completing this military set – enrolled in the program. (Although I’m still trying to figure out how Coast Guard considered military while country not at war? 😉 ).

I am currently in for only 1. Wish there was info as to how many will be punched out. No limit but you never know.

Kaiser Wilhelm

Chris Terp,

In support of the Coast Guard, ever since the beginning of our decades-long, ill-fated losing “war on drugs” that Service has had to bear the brunt of the nation’s interdiction efforts.

Chris Terp

Kaiser,

The Coast Guard has been interdicting in drug wars from Rum Runners following the Revolution, bootleggers during Prohibition and drugs since forever. When Congress gave President Bush special powers to combat terrorism is when Coast Guard elevated to military service again.

Agree, during peace, Coast Guard has to deal with some bad hombre drug cartels on the seas.

Kaiser Wilhelm

Chris Terp,

Thanks for the info in reference to the earlier days of the Coast Guard. I tend to look at it as a more recently created/activated Service; silly me.

Chris Terp

The Coast Guard was created to enforce tarrifs – catching rum runners and the like.

Kaiser Wilhelm

Thanks, Chris Terp. I have been a lifelong collector of information and knowledge and I’m not quitting in old age. 🙂

REB

… and they have the coolest service song, the underappreciated “Semper Paratus”.

Chris Terp

Yes REB, the Coasties have a doozy of an anthem 🙂

Kaiser Wilhelm

Chris Terp and REB,

The songs of the branches of the Military are indeed uplifting, but for my money it’s the College fight songs that get my blood moving. For example, I can’t think of anything more rousing than “On, Wisconsin!”

Chris Terp

By the books Major D the Coast Guard is a civilian entity and during times of war is elevated to military service. It was originally created to enforce tarrifs. In the original wording of the US Constitution, the Army had to be re-authorized every year. The Navy used to be a Cabinet position until 1947. The Coast Guard was designed to assist US sailors and commerce as well as arresting rum runners and others with contraband with the ability to arrest. The military is always military by law. MPs and Shore Patrol can not detain civilians like the Coast Guard… Read more »

That is correct Major D.

Kaiser Wilhelm

Chris Terp and Major D,

Thanks to you both for a great Coast Guard tutorial. I especially appreciate being made aware of the distinction made between the Military Services on the one hand and the Coast Guard on the other in regard to the relevance and application of the Posse Comitatus Act.

Kaiser Wilhelm

To this day I believe the choice of the name for that agency was a rather unfortunate and misguided one; it simply reminds one too much of “German Fatherland” or “Russian Motherland”.

Chris Terp

Welp, guessing there will be no delay in pushing out the Air Force medal, Mint charged my credit card Sunday afternoon. Hopefully shipping will be quick – fingers crossed.

Kaiser Wilhelm

Knock on wood, but things seem to have speeded up considerably in the service and delivery departments at the U.S. Mint. Thank you Ventris!

Mike Petraitis

Do you think the 2022 American Liberty 1 oz silver medal will be a sell out with in an hour after it goes on sale?

Rooster

Mike: I hope there is that kind of demand for this medal. The price may prevent that quick of a sale. I’ll throw my dart and aim for 5:00.

Kaiser Wilhelm

Rooster and Mike Petraitis,

It seems the Mint has added a twist to the application of your calculations. While the Medal did initially sell out and as a result its status was changed to “Remind Me”, it now appears that was merely a pause in the action. Yesterday thousands more of the Medals were put on sale by the Mint, and I have the distinct feeling this was not by any means the last of such availability resurgences we will see.
