2023 marks the sixth year of the Mint’s American Innovation Program, which originally launched in 2018. In its inaugural year, there was a single release featuring George Washington’s signature on the reverse, symbolizing his signing of the first U.S. patent. Since 2018, the program has introduced four new issues each year. The series is scheduled to continue through 2032, celebrating creativity from each state, the District of Columbia, and the five U.S. territories.

Drum roll………
the 2024 Mint release schedule has been posted. (2022 is no longer there) Mintages for the Morgan and Peace dollars remains the same. prices of course are only estimates = to the 2023 prices at this time. Harriet Tubman starts the show Jan 4.


I’m sure Kaiser will be amongst the first to subscribe to all 7 choices for the Harriet Tubman, and that is just to kick things off.


ha, I’m not even close. I thought the 3 roll women quarters , even with increased availability would always sell out. But I see not only is the latest issue still available, but there is no order limit anymore.


Based on what has been sold there are only 70 or so rolls left, but still, maybe even the Mint might have noticed something


The sales figures are posted weekly by Mike Unser, so I just took the difference between the product limit and the number listed as sold.


you are correct (of course, my bad)
I see the Tallchief 3 roll quarter set is now unavailable
