The Bombay Hook National Wildlife Refuge is the most popular coin on the 2015 Delaware quarter. This is the fourth of five coins in the series, and the 29th in total. Launched into circulation on Sept. 14, the quarters were ceremonially unveiled on Sept. 18, 2015. They are difficult to find elsewhere, and your local bank cannot order them from a minting facility. Also, the coins can take some time to appear in your change.
The Bombay Hook National Wildlife Refuge in Delaware is also featured on this year’s specialty quarter. The sculpted image of a wading bird is an emblem of the region’s coastal wetland habitats. The launch of the special edition coin took place Friday at the refuge near Smyrna, and is the 29th in the America the Beautiful Quarters Program. It’s a wonderful souvenir for any Delawarean or bird lover.
The second state featured on the 2015 Delaware quarter is Saratoga National Historic Park, located in New York. The same portrait that appears on the America the Beautiful coin was first used on the circulating quarter-dollar in 1932. Similarly, the state of Delaware was admitted to the union on December 7, 1787. The state’s statehood was commemorated with this coin. It features an iconic bird, the Great Blue Heron.
The average condition of a 2015 Delaware quarter is good enough to sell for 25 cents at an auction. In comparison, a coin with certified mint state (MS+) condition may fetch $4 at auction. While this year’s Delaware quarters are relatively common in terms of mintage numbers, they were once rare. Despite their common appearance, the coin is still worth its price in today’s market. So, why not get a piece of history?
The United States Mint is releasing five commemorative quarters with special reverse designs. The first four designs are of the nation’s national parks.

If you’re looking for a new coin to commemorate an important landmark in America, consider the new 2015 Delaware quarter. You’ll be glad you got it when the quarters arrive!
