Do you have a quarter and want to know its value? Leave a comment
On February 4th just twelve days after its January 23 release date I got three 2012 El Yunque quarters. I went to the store got some Tostitos chips, on sale, then got store points for my purchase, then got these quarters, and a day later the Giants win the Superbowl what a great weekend.
This may have been the fastest I got a coin in change from the release date.
El Yunque is a rainforest established in 1903 in the now Commonwealth of Puerto Rico. The coin features the coqui, Puerto Rican parrot, and various plants.
Another unique thing is its unceremonious release. Every other quarter released in recent years had a launch party but due to budget cut backs the parties are over. Not a coincidence they stopped before having to fly out to Puerto Rico. They must also figure that a true collector will buy them whether or not there is a big release.
Here's the stats...
Type/Country: 25 Cents-El Yunque / United States
Mintage: 25,000,000 (estimated)
Metal: 91.67% Copper 8.33% Nickel
Value: $0.25 in F-12
Let me know if you found any 2012 coins.
