The United States Mint has released a new series of circulating quality coins honoring the National Monument in Nebraska, Homestead. These coins are minted in silver, and the 2015 Homestead National Monument of America Quarter is one of the 26 releases in the series. On March 19, 1936, the National Park Service designated Homestead as a national monument, the twenty sixth national reservation in U.S. history. Today, Nebraska is one of the country’s most popular tourist destinations.
The 2015 quarter is made of 90% silver and ten percent copper. Its average price is around $5-10. The clad composition of the coin makes it more valuable than its face value. The reverse side of the coin shows a well, cornstalks, and a cabin, the three basic elements for survival. These coins are considered collector’s items and are a great investment for collectors. If you’re looking to collect the 2015 Quarter, it is worth its weight in gold!
There are a wide variety of errors on the 2015 Homestead Quarter. The most common errors are double-dots in the center window of the homestead, and the word “Snow” on the top of the house. Minor errors, such as this one, sell for less than a dollar, while large die breaks sell for $20-50. However, you should note that even minor errors can have value in the coin market.
The design of the 2015 Quarter is a re-design of the Washington Quarter. Its obverse side features a reworked version of the portrait of George Washington, which was originally designed by John Flanagan in 1932. The reverse side features the unique character and environment of each state. The 2015 quarter is a great way to preserve history and commemorate our nation’s first president.
The American The Beautiful Quarters Series was introduced in 2010, and since then, the mint has released five new coins each year. The series is expected to release 30 more coins, and will conclude in 2021 when national sites are honored in all 50 states. However, the 2016 quarter of Nevada is a new design and is the state’s first quarter. Its design is based on a map of the state, so it’s impossible to determine exactly where the coins were struck.
