2011 US Coins

2011 will see some very collectable coins being released from the United States Mint throughout the year. Perhaps the most popular in terms of sheer numbers will be strikes from the America the Beautiful Quarters® Program, but collector interest will likely peak over the associated America the Beautiful Five Ounce Silver Uncirculated Coins. Both series will be in their second year with the release of the 2011-dated strikes and feature similar designs honoring sites of beauty and history found throughout the United States.

Of course, other popular coins will be the American Eagles as well as the strikes of the two commemorative programs scheduled for 2011. More information on all of these coins can be found by following the links below.

About the United States Mint

The primary purpose for the US Mint is to produce circulating coinage for the United States for use in trade and commerce. A relatively small portion of these coins are also obtained by individuals to save as part of their coin collections.

The Mint also produces numismatic products for the sole purpose of being sold to collectors. Whereas the circulating coins mentioned before feature a business strike, the Mint typically uses an uncirculated of proof finish on their numismatic releases. This results in the numismatic coins typically featuring a higher level of detail and less foreign marks than seen on the circulating strikes.

Coins of the US Mint are produced at four different facilities - Philadelphia, Denver, San Francisco and West Point with mintmarks of 'P,' 'D,', 'S' and 'W,' respectively. The circulating coin of the United States are currently produced solely at Philadelphia and Denver.
