Today, June 29, at noon Eastern Standard Time (EST), product options for the 2015 Blue Ridge Parkway America the Beautiful Quarter are available to order from the United States Mint.
These options include:
The quarters are uncirculated business strike specimens from Denver, Philadelphia, and San Francisco, but only the three-roll set contains coins from all three branch mints.
Quarters with the “S” mint mark will not be released into circulation and are available only through these products.
Coin rolls come in a unique wrapper featuring the name “Blue Ridge Parkway”, the abbreviation “NC” for North Carolina, “$10,” the quarter’s face value and the mint mark. Each canvas bag has a special tag with “Blue Ridge Parkway”, “NC” and the mint mark on it.
Per usual, visit http://catalog.usmint.gov/coins/other-coins/ or call 1-800-USA-MINT (872-6468) to place your orders. Hearing- and speech-impaired customers with TTY equipment may order at 1-888-321-MINT.
The Blue Ridge Parkway America the Beautiful quarter is number 28 out of 56 and therefore marks the halfway point in the entire series. The Hot Springs National Park (Arkansas) quarter was the first to be released, on April 19, 2010. The last quarter in the series–the Tuskegee Airmen National Historic Site (Alabama)–is set for release in 2021.
