The United States Mint is scheduled to begin accepting orders at noon Eastern Time Nov. 18 for the 2015 America the Beautiful Quarters Circulating Coin Set.

Priced at $5.95, the set contains 10 circulating coins — five from the Philadelphia Mint, evidenced by a P Mint mark on the Washington obverse, and five struck at the Denver Mint, having a D Mint mark.

The coins are Mint State examples of circulation-quality coins that were never placed into general circulation.

The coins are struck on a coinage press outfitted with a single pair of obverse and reverse dies striking at the rate of approximately 700 to 750 coins per minute.

Coins in the 2015 annual set bear reverse designs honoring Homestead National Monument of America in Nebraska; Kisatchie National Forest in Louisiana; Blue Ridge Parkway in North Carolina; Bombay Hook National Wildlife Refuge in Delaware; and Saratoga National Historical Park in New York.

The set’s packaging permits the coins to be removed easily and placed in the Mint’s America the Beautiful Quarters Coin Album or other storage device.

Orders will be accepted at https://catalog.usmint.gov and at 800-872-6468, while hearing-and speech-impaired customers with TTY equipment may order at 888-321-6468.

Information about shipping options is available at catalog.usmint.gov/customer-service/shipping.html.
