The United States Mint is randomly issuing 5 new 25 cent coin designs…into circulation this year…[which could] each be worth 100x their face value if they are in average mint state condition … Here’s what to look for:

Each of the five 2019 quarter designs will feature the “W” mintmark of the famous West Point Mint, known as the “Fort Knox of Silver” because of its precious-metal vaults. Although this might seem like a lot of coins, it represents only one out of every 200 or so 2019 quarters. They are being distributed to banks and financial institutions through the Federal Reserve system, mixed in with their more common Philadelphia Mint and Denver Mint counterparts.@Your Finances

The “W” mintmark, below “IN GOD WE TRUST”, shows that this rare and valuable coin was struck at the West Point Mint. Hover t

In total, a maximum of only 10 million West Point Mint quarters will reach circulation, or about one coin for every 33 U.S. citizens. They include two million each of:

1. the Lowell National Historical Park quarter


Sites in and around the city of Lowell, Massachusetts, relating to the Industrial Revolution and its importance to the American textile industry, technology, social progress, planned communities, and the education and protection of workers.











2. Frank Church River of No Return National Wilderness quarter


The largest federally managed wilderness in the continental United States: Nearly 2.4 million acres including mountain ranges, canyons, thousands of miles of hiking trails, and six national forests.











3. American Memorial Park, Northern Mariana Islands quarter


A living memorial recognizing the sacrifices made in the Marianas Campaign of World War II.












4. the War in the Pacific National Historical Park quarter


A park set aside to remember the battles that raged in the Pacific Theater of World War II, and the bravery and sacrifices of all who participated in those battles, Japanese as well as Allied.









5. the San Antonio Missions National Historical Park quarter


Four of the five Spanish Catholic frontier missions (except for the Alamo) in San Antonio.








If the Guide Book went to press today, we would list the coins around $25 each in average Mint State condition, based on feedback from coin dealers around the country,” said Jeff Garrett, senior editor of the Guide Book of United States Coins

  4. I came across a 2020 NATIONAL PARK AMERICAN SAMOA quarter with a W and a V75 above the word liberty and below the U in UNITED

  5. Keep them people! They will increase in value! Get them graded! Every one I have found (which I have all from 2019, and 2 from 2020 now) have come from feeding money into change machines at a car wash. Then I roll all that back up, go to the bank, cash it all back in and start over, you’re losing nothing! Go to the bank, if they have it, you lose nothing, it’s worth the chance! I’ve probably just been lucky, but it’s been amazing to find them.

    • I know this is an old post but that is a total dick move. Go get rolls from the bank instead of screwing up someone’s car wash business.

  17. I have searched through 19 rolls of 2019 uncirculated quarters from a box obtained from a bank and 15 rolls from a second box. There were no w quarters from these searches. All I found were shiny San Antonio quarters. Is the mint very selective in adding w quarters? I used to think that in ten rolls you should find a least one w quarter.
