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.
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
4. the War in the Pacific National Historical Park quarter
5. the San Antonio Missions National Historical Park quarter
