So it snowed and snowed in Washington, D.C., as this column was prepared. In fact, it snowed so much that the Mint’s offices were shut down for three consecutive days and looked like possibly a fourth as this issue was going to press. What to do?
Well, the handy Web site provided some February bullion American Eagle numbers, but the rest of the usual weekly updates are missing from this page.
I have devoted much of the space to publishing mintage figures that have been published before, but frequent requests from readers indicate that publishing state quarter mintages, D.C. and Territories mintages and Presidential dollars mintages again would be much appreciated. Here they are.
All of them tell the tale of declining totals over time. The questions arise as to how far Presidential dollar mintages can fall and will America the Beautiful quarter numbers continue the decline when they are introduced in April?
