The United States Mint has an exciting 2022 in store for collectors. For the first time since 2010, collectors get a new quarters program. This one will focus on women in American history. In addition, commemoratives offer their own appeal with issues celebrating the Negro Leagues and honoring the Purple Heart. The United States Mint will also honor America’s armed forces with medals for military branches. Here’s a look at some of the options that collectors will have in 2022.

On March 14th, 2022, the United States Mint announced that while they had intended to issue 2022 Proof Peace and Morgan Dollars, due to the global pandemic and the availability of silver blanks from the Mint’ suppliers, that neither will be issued in 2022. The Mint does plan to release Peace and Morgan Dollars in 2023.

This post will be updated regularly as the United States Mint releases more information. Details are subject to change depending on Mint updates.
