    My silver proof set arrived today. It's lovely, if overpriced. Price for this year's 10-piece set is the same as last years 7-piece set. My streak is intact for another year. :)

    (I know buying mint offerings is a polarizing subject. If you've sworn off mint products, I totally get it. There's no need to proclaim it again here.)

    The issue price for the 2022 set is the same as that for the 2020 set after the mid term price increase, and they have the same number and composition of coins. I purchased only one this year, compared to two of them in 2020 prior to the price increase. I have these in OGP back to their inception in 1992.

    Me, too. Actually, the 2020 set sold for 63.25. The big price increase was last year, 2021, which was a 7-coin set (2 quarters instead of 5).

    I really like the new Washington image on the Quarters.

    The 2020 set initially sold for $63.25, then later in the year went to $105.00.

    Ok, that's why my records say 63.25.

    I just got the famous women quarters. The rest of the set is the same ole/same ole.

    I like the Anna May Wong design - I may have to get a certified silver copy of that one myself.

    If I'm not mistaken, I think that set represents the first time Cherokee and Spanish have appeared on circulating US coins. Cherokee appeared on the Sequoya Native American dollar, but that didn't circulate, so I think those are both firsts. Please correct me if I'm wrong.

    That is the design that Laura Fraser (Wife of James Fraser who designed the Buffalo Nickel) submitted for the Washington Quarter. Most people preferred it to John Flanagan’s work, but Treasury Secretary, Andrew Mellon, went to bat for Flanagan, and his design was used for the quarter. The Fraser design was used for 1999 Washington $5 gold commemorative coin.

    They look so cloudy. Is that just the light? I looked at the one my son got and it didn't as bad.

    I picked up a set as well. Had to pry the money out of my wallet, but then again, a coin with "Mankiller" on it has to become worth something in the future, right?

    Here's the gold version from 1999. The image of Washington was originally planned to be used for the quarter in 1932. 1999 Washington 5 Dollar Gold Coin.jpg

    Did the Isabella quarter ever circulate?

    I think some were found in circulation, but it was sold as a non-circulating commemorative. I also see only English on it. A good one to check, in any case.
