2011 Silver Quarter
The 2011 silver quarter has been released in the United States. The coin features the words “Chickasaw” on the reverse and the phrase “E Pluribus Unum” on the obverse. The United States Mint produced the coin in a limited quantity to meet demand. However, it has already sold out earlier than expected. You can still purchase a silver quarter if you are interested in buying it. Here are some things to keep in mind when buying a silver quarter.
The 2011 America the Beautiful Silver Proof Set is a great way to own one of these coins. It contains five silver quarters, each minted from 90% silver with a proof finish. It comes packaged just as it would be sold by the U.S. Mint, complete with an outer box, protective hard plastic case, and certificate of authenticity. The set includes coins from the Gettysburg National Military Park, Vicksburg National Military Park, and the Chickasaw National Recreation Area. These coins are a nice gift for proof collectors because of their mirror-like finish.
Despite the fact that the US Mint is not clear about the ending date of the 2011 silver quarter, there is still plenty of time to order one. The sale period for commemorative coins is typically a year, beginning January 1 and ending December 31. Therefore, you will need to buy your coin before the end of that period. Typically, sales for commemorative coins end in December, so the US Mint has enough time to fill orders by year’s end.
As with any product, if the US Mint has a stated mintage limit, the 2011 silver quarter may be sold out before the maximum mintage is reached. However, the 2011 version of the coin will remain in circulation as long as inventory is available. The US Mint isn’t planning to introduce a new version of this coin until the end of the current year. Therefore, if you’re interested in buying a 2011 silver quarter, you’d better hurry up!
In addition, the 2011 Chickasaw National Recreation Area quarter has been released in a silver version as part of proof sets. These coins are 90% silver and 10% copper. A silver coin will cost between $5 and $10. However, they will carry the “S” mintmark. The price of the silver coin will vary depending on the grade. There are several different kinds of 2011 silver quarters. In addition to the silver variety, there are some gold plated coins.
