The options for the new products include circulation-quality quarters struck at the Philadelphia, Denver, and San Francisco Mints. These products come in two-roll sets, three-roll sets, and 100-coin bags. Although the coins are of circulation grade, they have never actually been released into circulation.

Dr. Walker was born on November 26, 1832, and earned her medical degree in 1855 from Syracuse Medical College in New York, graduating with honors. At the start of the American Civil War, she attempted to volunteer for the Union Army but was denied because she was a woman. Her tenacity eventually led her to become the first female U.S. Army surgeon as a "Contract Acting Assistant Surgeon (civilian)." At one point, she was captured by Confederate forces while assisting a Confederate doctor during an amputation across enemy lines. She remained a prisoner of war for four months.

In addition to her notable medical career, Walker is also remembered as a women’s rights and dress reform advocate. She passed away at the age of 86 in 1919.

Dr. Mary Edwards Walker Quarter Designs

Shown on the reverse (tails side) of each quarter is a likeness of Walker holding her pocket surgical kit, with the Medal of Honor on her uniform and surgeon’s pin at her collar.

he inscriptions on the reverse read: UNITED STATES OF AMERICA, E PLURIBUS UNUM, 25 CENTS, DR. MARY EDWARDS WALKER, and MEDAL OF HONOR 1865. The design is the work of U.S. Mint Medallic Artist Phebe Hemphill.

All coins of the American Women Quarters series bear the same obverse (heads side) portrait of George Washington. The image of Washington was sculpted by Laura Gardin Fraser over 90 years ago to celebrate the first President of the United States 200th birthday.

American Women Quarters Program

American Women Quarters debuted in 2022 and were created by Congress under Public Law 116-330, which dictates a total of twenty new coins over four years to celebrate the accomplishments and contributions made by women of the United States.

The 2024 quarters honor the following individuals:

  • Rev. Dr. Pauli Murray – poet, writer, activist, lawyer, and Episcopal priest
  • Patsy Takemoto Mink – first woman of color to serve in Congress
  • Dr. Mary Edwards Walker – Civil War era surgeon, women’s rights and dress reform advocate
  • Celia Cruz – Cuban-American singer, cultural icon, and one of the most popular Latin artists of the 20th century
  • Zitkala-Ša – writer, composer, educator, and political activist

Along with these new rolls and bags, American Women Quarters also appear in U.S. Mint clad proof sets, silver proof sets, holiday ornaments, and an uncirculated mint set.

The final coins from the program, quarters for 2025, will recognize Ida B. Wells, Juliette Gordon Low, Dr. Vera Rubin, Stacey Park Milbern, and Althea Gibson.

Was looking at some older offerings and happened upon my 2008 Bald Eagles – no value but exquisite coins.

The market can be fickle. It is a classy design but that doesn’t equate to value.


Tony I think this is one of the ole’, plenty of supply to meet demand scenarios. PCGS lists the proof 2008 Bald Eagle Silver $1 Commem as having a mintage of 294,601, with the Unc at 119,204. Values placed at $48 for a PF/Unc in 69, with the PF70’s listed @ $140 vs $80 for the MS70 Unc. You would probably be lucky to get spot($26-$29) from a LCS unfortunately. The USM introductory prices were $39.95 and $35.95 respectively. BTW gold was at 900.03 on Jan 15, 2008 and the 2008 $5 PR Au Bald Eagle had an introductory price… Read more »


Rick, in the previous thread(CCAC) said: “I think the CCAC was reviewing the proposed Working Dog Commem a few weeks ago? Congress passed the Doggy deal so we’re going to get that Commem in a couple years?” I could be mistaken, however the proposal has not yet passed the Senate(only Uouse) or become “Public Law” with Presidential signature, as of yet. The latest update says: “05/22/2024 Received in the Senate and Read twice and referred to the Committee on Banking, Housing, and Urban Affairs. Action By: Senate” Again as of yet, this has not “passed” in the Senate, nor received… Read more »


I’ve said it before on here and I’ll say it again. Feature a dog on a coin and the mint will have a winner. Probably even out-sell the 2023 Morgan/Peace proof dollars. Combined.


Christo I hope you’re right that it’s going to be a winner and I’m being sincere this time.
The Morgan/Peace has run its course. The Mint could use a winner soon.
The Lib/Brit is not a winner right now, maybe it is “sleeping” at the moment? We’ll see?
I stumbled across the Dog tidbit below, they send me updates every Monday…


I think you’re ‘barking mad’ Christo. I have two dogs, and would have zero interest in buying any coin just because it had a dog’s image on it. The only way I’d consider it would be if the mint sold it at spot, but that’ll never happen.


I no longer have a dog but my grandkids do and they would love to get a dog coin for Christmas. Also, I think your barking up the wrong tree if you think any sovereign mint is going to sell you precious metal coins at spot. But feel free to keep stiffing around for one.


The mint sell me a coin at spot…that will never happen, just like my desire for a ‘dog coin’. I’m not familiar with ‘stiffing’..must be a regional thing.

Christo, and if it did outsell them that would just mean more annual offerings, of the proof and uncirculated Gold Dog, the proof and uncirculated Silver Dog, and the reverse proof set of both. Oh, and the special bone privy, the high-relief and the colorized, too!

I received my mint brochure today. They had a page regarding upcoming products and one was the flowing hair coin and medal. No mention of product limits. Has anyone seen anything about product limits anywhere else?


Give it 2 months they’ll come with something for those.
Expect that release to be similar to the L&B release. Possibly an even more tempting draw to create buzz?
1 Gold per household is a guarantee on day 1, after that? we’ll see what the buzz will be?. If they’re smart they’ll cap those at 8,000 pcs and sell out in an hour.


After AKBob asked about opinions for price trends for the PF70 V75 AGE I dug up my spreadsheet for E-Bay sales for some various US Mint coins. Now I’m wishing I would have included the 2020 V75 AGE. I didn’t think to price out the different grades like 69 and 70 either. I just tracked raw or OGP sales. I also stopped tracking a few time with the last time being in November of 2023. I update the spreadsheet with some recent sales. The whole reason I did this spreadsheet was because I lost out in the chaos of the… Read more »


Oh yeah the prices are scaled to the release prices. So 1.0 means it sold for the same as the US Mint release date price and 2.0 means it sold for twice the release date price.

East Coast Guru

Excellent chart!! Not sure if it is worth holding out for the flowing hair gold coin or buy something else. I Might want to wait about 3 years for the “shiny object” crowd to move on to something else and get it at a more reasonable price if I can’t get it on opening day. Mintage limits will play a roll.


Thanks East Coast Guru, On some of the limited issues there seems to be in instability period between the time that the product sells out where the prices rises wildly until people start receiving their products an reselling them. The 2021 Morgan and Peace made it interesting because of the time period between opening sales and delivery. There is also an unpredictability element. There was a lot of hype about the Type 1 AGE and ASE, but the end the prices ended up at or near the release price. The 21 Morgan CC seemed to live up to its hype… Read more »

Back on May 28 in the article “US Mint sales: Surge in Popularity of Silver Products” E 1 wrote: “How is this possible?
2024 Silver Proof sets are still not available from the US Mint.
PCGS Cert Number 941826.70/50303485 does not exist in PCGS database.
Unauthorized release?
High quality fake?”

In just checking that cert now, it does exist. There’s a population total of 86 x PR70 + 14 x PR69. The latest sales report from the Mint ending 6-16-2024 has sales for 24RH = 639, and yet the release is still 9 days away (on June 27).


I’ll stick with my theory that the Mint shipped out prescriptions early/mistakenly before the “delayed for public sale” announcement was once again declared. At least they reported the sales?
I big to do about nothing really.

Major D

Rick, the Mint does what the Mint wants so there’s really nothing one can do about it except accept it. How’s that for capitulation? As far as reporting the sales, it’s one month late I’d say (after the certs).

Re: the mint going to the dogs – I’m surprised they didn’t propose a quarter doggie program – 5 different breeds a year for God only knows how many years.
I think they’re barking up the wrong tree with the worker dog commem. Goofy idea, IMO (sorry to Disney)
Next we’ll get the AFLAC duck, the Liberty Ostrich, etc.
They’re making a mockery of our coinage – not surprising in this day and age.
