    Question: Will the mint produce 2021 Tuskegee Airmen Quarter with the W mint mark? If so, randomly released into circulation?

    Good question. I don't believe there's been any word on that from the mint.

    Okay, now there is one of those quarters I want the 5oz silver of. I've actually met Jefferson Alexander.

    Now there's an idea for a mint promotion. Release five oz silvers into circulation.

    Yeah, and go into a Dollar General store and purchase a Slim Jim or candy bar with one.

    Also they made a 5.oz copper medal/coin based on the tuskegee quarter.

    The 2021 tuskegee coin will also be the last silver 5.oz one for the America the beautiful series.

    Sorry, I don't have an inside track on Mint decision making. All I can do is make speculations from past announcements and actions.
    In 2018 they mentioned the idea of low mintage rarities being released in 2019.
    In 2019 they announced the W mint quarters, thus fulfilling thier 2018 announcement. But the 2018 statement made no implication that the "circulation rarity" would be a continuing thing so I suspected it would be a one year promotion like the 2017 P cent was.
    In 2020 they again said there would be W quarters, so I now suspect it will be an every year thing, like the S business strike coins. So suspect there WILL be 2021 W Tuskegee quarters. The next question then becomes "Will there be W mint Washington Crossing the Delaware quarters?".

    There is news of a new quarter series?

    Yes, ever since the state quarters were authorized back in 1995 the legislation has said that at the end of the series the reverse design would change to an image of Washington Crossing the Delaware. This was continued in the America the Beautiful quarter series that it would be the Washington/Delaware after it ended. No new series has been authorized (although the House did pass a bill to do so) so after the Tuskegee we will have Washington/Delaware as a continuing reverse. They have already selected the design that will be on it.

    And to put the bow on it...

    The Senate passed the bill with an amendment which bounced it back to the house.
    The House approved the amended bill and sent it to the president.
    It died on January 3, 2021 when the 116th Congress adjourned.

    At present, this means 'ole George crossing the river will be the quarter until the next time Congress meddles.

    Not so fast.
    Not so fast, the President has ten days to sign the bill.

    No, he does not. Once Congress adjourns, the business of the session is concluded.

    He has ten days if Congress is still in session. The tenth day was Jan 3rd, and the Congress session ended that day without his signing it, so as Burton says, it is now dead.

    One problem I have with this is H.R. 1923 calling for quarters celebrating the 19th amendment. It was sent to the President for signing on Dec 17th. When exactly did Congress recess? By my count the ten day period for the President to sign H.R. 1923 ended Dec 29th. He didn't sign it or veto it as far as I can tell, but if Congress was still in session then, it would have become law under the ten day rule.
