Part of National Coin Week 2021

LOTS OF FUN IN 2021

One hundred years ago, the U.S. Mint reintroduced the Morgan dollar after a 16-year absence. Later that year, production began on a new silver coin, the Peace dollar. And 50 years ago, minting of the Eisenhower dollar commenced. Milestone anniversaries for these three large and iconic coins inspires the theme of 2021 National Coin Week, Money, BIG & BOLD. The 98th annual event focuses on strong initiative in numismatics, and bold leadership and ideas depicted on coins and paper money. 

Thanks to everyone for their involvement in 2021 National Coin Week! 2022 National Coin Week is April 17-23.

THE GREAT AMERICAN COIN HUNT

Imagine finding rare and collectible coins like these in your pocket!

 

That's right. Thousands of rare and collectible coins have been dropped into regular circulation with the intention of encouraging people to take and interest in coins and coin collecting.

You can start looking for valuable coins today, starting with the change in your purse or pocket. 

In 2019, in conjunction with the American Numismatic Association, RoundTable Trading, and The Great American Coin Hunt, The U.S. Mint launched into circulation a limited amount of America the Beautiful Quarters with the “W” mint mark – a first for the U.S. Mint in 227 years of minting coins. The “W” denotes that the quarters were produced at the West Point Mint. While West Point has produced quarters in the past, they didn’t have a mint mark and were indistinguishable from Philadelphia quarters.

The goal of the initiative is to create excitement about coin collecting by introducing rare coins into circulation, allowing anyone the opportunity to collect the quarters from their pocket change.

The Great American Coin Hunt is a Free and Open Coin Hunt Supported by The US Mint and hundreds of Coin Dealers in the USA. 

  • The Great American Coin Hunt has been described as a “Willy Wonka-type game” and is sponsored by the American Numismatic Association (ANA).

  • It is the biggest coin drop in American history.

  • The goal to spark interest in coin collecting.

  • The U.S. Mint produced a special "W" US Quarter for the event.

  • Hundreds of coin dealers and collectors are participating, announcing their coin drops on Twitter, Facebook and Instagram using hashtag #GreatAmericanCoinHunt.

Get Started Today!

 

Step 1: Keep An Eye Out For Special Coins In Ordinary Places You Find Coins.

 

Keep looking at your change! Do you see a coin that looks unfamiliar? It might just be worth digging into. Any coin besides the typical circulating rotation, might be a potential find!

 

Another great way to tell if you've found something special is to check the date. While coins from the 1970s and 1980s are common finds in change, a coin stamped with a 1930s or 1940s date, is a good indicator you've found something worth finding.

 

Another good tip is that circulating coinage, including Roosevelt and Mercury dimes, Walking Liberty and Kennedy half dollars as well as Washington Quarters, struck in 1964 and earlier are composed of 90% silver as opposed to today's cupro-nickel composition. Even if a piece is not glaringly valuable, it might just be worth its weight in silver!
