U.S. Mint Data Lists White Mountain Quarter Mintages

Compared to the previous month, slightly fewer coins were minted for circulation in March, according to production figures from the U.S. Mint. Additionally, coin production figures from the United States Mint indicate mintages for the 2013 White Mountain National Forest quarters.

Year to date, U.S. Mint facilities in Denver and Philadelphia have minted 3,096,220,000 circulating quality coins, accounting the most rapid yearly start since 2007.

In the month of March, 932,560,000 coins were struck, a 0.8 percent drop from February, but a 19.3 percent gain from the same period in 2012. Current figures place March as the fifth busiest month for the U.S. Mint in the last 12 months.

Official figures show a 21.7 percent decrease in production of Jefferson nickels combined with a 62.8 percent decrease in Presidential $1 Coins have contributed to the month of March production numbers being down from February’s.

According to the Mint, demand is increasing for quarter with preliminary mintages being established for the 2013 American the Beautiful Quarter depicting White Mountain National Forest in New Hampshire. Mintages indicate 107,600,000 White Mountain Quarters were produced in Denver and 68,800,000 Quarters were produced in Philadelphia for a combined production of 176,400,000 Quarters.

Increased demand for circulation coinage at the U.S. Mint is sometimes read as an optimistic market indicator by analysts as it may indicate more business is being conducted which would require the use of the coins.

Nearly 3.1 billion coins were struck by the U.S. Mint in the first quarter of 2013, a 43.1 percent increase over the 2.164 billion coins minted in the first quarter of 2012.

While White Mountain Quarter production levels have been high, they are in fact only the second highest as Denali Quarter production at the U.S. Mint stands at 302 million. 2013-P Chickasaw Quarters also lead the 2013-P White Mountain Quarters in production at the Philadelphia Mint, at 73.8 million compared with 68.8 million.

No Native American $1 Coins were produced in March or February, after 3.64 million Native American $1 Coins were struck in the month of January. The coins have not been produced for commerce since 2011, but are released for coin collectors, as are the Presidential $1 Coins, in the Mint’s response to customer demand.
