U.S. Mint Updates Release Schedule for 2010 Cent Rolls, 2010 Quarters and $1s

US Mint 2010 Coin Product ScheduleThe U.S. Mint late last week updated its schedule and has given exact release dates for product launches in April and in May.

When gazing upon the changes, collectors will immediately notice the addition of 2010 Lincoln cent rolls, which go on sale today at noon Eastern Time.

Presidential $1 coin products take two lines in the updated schedule. The uncirculated set will get the most attention of the two, as the annual offering is fairly popular. The 2009 set had sales of just over 105,000.

And for the first time ever, America the Beautiful Quarters products appear with specific release dates. The new 11-year program begins with five quarter-dollars in 2010. They celebrate a national site and four national parks, with the first one ever recognized by the U.S. government being Hot Springs National Park in Arkansas.

The Hot Springs Park Quarter will likely be one of the most watched releases of the year simply because it is the very first one in the America the Beautiful Quarters Program. Fifty-five more will come later at a rate of five per year, ending with the final coin release in 2021.

The clad and silver quarters proof sets are listed with dates as well. Both sets contain collector versions of the five 2010 quarters. The four not yet mentioned include the Yellowstone National Park Quarter, the Yosemite National Park Quarter, the Grand Canyon National Park Quarter, and the Mount Hood National Forest Site Quarter. The coins in the silver set are struck from 90% silver and 10% copper, and include a total of 0.904 ounces of the metal. (With silver at $18/oz, the coins have an intrinsic value of over $16.) The clad set is priced at $14.95 and the silver set at $32.95.
