W quarters? Need your help

Hello everyone. As you know W quarters are no longer in production and will be rapidly disappearing from circulation. I really want to find one myself before they are nearly gone, so I could use some advice. I am planning on going to a laundromat near by and exchange $20 for quarters, and I also want to run my the bank to grab 3 rolls or so. 

Do you think I could find a W out of 5 rolls of quarters? How many rolls do you think I would have to search in order to find one?

It's a math problem. The odds are going to be small. You have to know roughly how W quarters were minted. Then you have to know roughly how many quarters are in circulation. Divide the number of w quarters by the total number in circulation and that will give a percentage or odds of finding one. It's going to be pretty small. But then again I know a guy who found 4 this year  Good luck!

Finding rolls of pure 2020 or 2019 quarters will boost those numbers up considerably.

Don't worry . There are pleanty. No one is finding them. You can still find 2019. So calm down. You never know we're you will find them.

don't worry, there are still plenty out there! Just get as many rolls as you can, and get them from a credit union if you can. And have friends/family looking for them too. Good Luck!

I got one from 2019 in the hospital. A girl was selling Danish I said how muxh. 75 cents. So I gave her a dollar and she gave me a 2019 quarter. In said that looks really shinny. I checked it was a W quarter. I'm not going in the hospital four more times so I will hang on to this. My wife found one from the grocery store. She's gives me the change. I found another from 2020. So you never know .

And by the way, they will be circulating for a long time, just think of how many were probably thrown into coin jars and won't be spent for a long time. You'll find one with time, just keep lookin!

It is simply a numbers game, I've been through approx 30 rolls these past few months, no joy.  Sooner or later you will find one.  As pointed out, I know a few people who toss their change in containers and only roll or coin star them every blue moon.  Act like a loose tooth, hang in there!
