New quarter idea

Coins-United States | user_8826

I had thought of an idea that could create more hype with the U.S. quarters. As we know, the Mint has the quarters with the W (West Point) mintmark that they randomly slide into rolls, and is the only way they could be obtained. The quarters are still made of the normal composition that P and D quarters are made of, and are still made in the millions. I don't see too much hype about it, and I've checked prices online like eBay and found the prices for them to be on average $12-35. So, here's an idea: how about, for one year, the mint tries special quarters made of gold? Obviously the mintage would much lower, and they too would be randomly inserted in rolls. I would think such would create a lot of hype.I know, I have on heck of an imagination and ideas, so I want to hear your input of this idea.

People have the option to purchase massive bags of quarters form the mint basically ensuring the success of finding one. I think silver would be a better idea, and more practical,

I think the days of gold coins in modern circulation is a thing of the past...circa 1930's.

Never make it to the public, never. It's an idea thought. Keep thinking. Thanks.

I think that would cause a frenzy at the banks and be counterproductive. Better to just change the designs on all our coins and perk up interest that way. Except the Cent, I love Lincoln on the Cent.

The silver proof quarter goes for 40.00 each in high grade. Next year the quarters will have animals from different states. That's the rumor of the month.

Special gold quarters for collections would be awesome. Most could never make a set though. With all the quarter designs, having a set is quite the achievement.

Unfortunately, people get really crazy when gold is involved. Meh. Fighting at the bank, Wally-world. I can hear it now, "That's my quarter", especially with the cost of gold. Besides I for one am really exhausted with all the quarter variations over the last few years. Change the design.....OK, change the composition? Don't think it would work. But I do like imagination, so I am always am willing to listen to ideas.

I don't think gold quarters for circulation would work. They would not make it out of the private firms that roll coins.
