To celebrate the 96th annual National Coin Week, in 2019, the United States Mint released West Point Mint mark quarters into circulation for the very first time! In total, 10 million quarters, two million of each America the Beautiful Quarter, bearing the “W” mint mark will be mixed into circulation for lucky change holders everywhere to seek out.
The 2019 W-Quarters mark the first time that circulating coinage struck at West Point Mint has received a “W” mint mark. "Firsts" within the coin collecting hobby always bring excitement to the coin world, especially for collectors working on full sets of a specific series. The mint mark also instantly distinguishes them from regular circulating quarters that do not have a mint mark. Will these be the only Quarters to ever bear the W Mint mark? Or is this the start of a larger tradition?
While 10 million coins may sound like a lot, the W quarters will only account for around 1% of the total circulating quarters produced in 2019, making them a significant find. For comparison, in 2018, the U.S Mint released more than 1.85 billion quarters into circulation whose mintages ranged from 289.6 million to 439.8 million across the five designs released last year. That is a LOT of circulating quarters.
