Have a quarter and want to know its value? Leave a comment
The last of the quarters for 2012 released on November 5, 2012. The Denali quarter is also one of the most common of the entire America The Beautiful series. Including both Philly and Denver mints the total of 302 million marks a 4 to 6 time larger mintage than average.
A final increase of quarters at the end of the year is not uncommon. Several factors including the seasonal economy, updated low circulation numbers, and mint speculation for the upcoming months causes the boost every year. Apparently as the economy gets better so does the minting of coins.
Denali is an Alaskan park formerly known as McKinley National Park before its expansion. It is famous for McKinley Mountain and huge herds of caribou over large seemingly barren landscapes. Of course they are not barren instead they are a cold climate adapted rich habitat. Denali is also famous for its alleged oil reserves. There maybe up to ten years worth of oil under the park and talks are constant on the best way to access the oil. As other quarters have lost their icon images I hope this one does not suffer the same fate for a several years worth of oil.
Here's the stats...
Type/Country: 25 Cents-Denali / United States
Mintage: 135,400,000 (estimated)
Metal: 91.67% Copper 8.33% Nickel
Value: $0.25 in F-12
