West Point Mint quarters April 2019

I don't normally care much about numismatic news, but I thought this was interesting:
Quote :
Do you see something strange in your change? For National Coin Week, the U.S. Mint is mixing things up and launching a limited amount of America the Beautiful quarters with the “W” mint mark into circulation – a first for the U.S. Mint in 227 years of minting coins. While West Point has produced quarters in the past, they didn’t have a mint mark and were indistinguishable from Philadelphia quarters.

The goal of the initiative is to create excitement about coin collecting by introducing rare coins into circulation, allowing anyone the opportunity to collect the quarters from their pocket change.

In total, the West Point Mint will strike 10 million quarters that will be mixed into bulk bags of quarters at the Philadelphia and Denver Mints. In early April, the first of the W mint mark quarters will be shipped and distributed to banks and financial institutions by the Federal Reserve. The coins will likely begin to appear in circulation within four to six weeks and will be available throughout 2019.

If you haven’t heard about it by now, you may want to log on to social media and see what all the buzz is about. Search hashtag #GreatAmericanCoinHunt on Facebook, Twitter or Instagram.

The Great American Coin Hunt began as an idea between a few coin dealers and within just a few days has become a viral, grassroots campaign that tens of thousands of numismatic enthusiasts are planning to participate in.

Planned for National Coin Week in late April 2019, the Great American Coin Hunt is a plan for hundreds of coin dealers and collectors to drop over one million vintage and collectible coins back into circulation. The idea is to spark interest in numismatics to a brand new demographic. From old buffalo nickels, silver mercury dimes to Ike dollars, silver certificates, five and 10 dollar blue and red seals will be spent at restaurants, gas stations and grocery stores from April 21-27, 2019. Many coins from the 1800s will also be spent as regular money.
