The US Mint has announced that limited mintage 2019-W quarters are being released directly into circulation starting this month, April 2019. These are the first quarters to feature the “W” mint mark of the West Point Mint, and have a total mintage of just 2 million per design.
“We want to encourage Americans to consider coin collecting by making the W mint mark quarters only available in general circulation,” said United States Mint Director David Ryder.
The Mint last year produced 1.85 billion quarters for circulation, ranging from 289.6 million to 439.8 million across the five 2018 issues. To learn more about the W Mint mark quarter, please visit the U.S. Mint website.
