How to get your own Homestead quarter


Exchange quarters at your local bank or purchase sets from Homestead’s bookstores or the U.S. Mint.
From the Bookstore at Homestead National Monument of America: Purchase a special packaged quarter or P and D set of quarters from the Friends of Homestead through our cooperating association, Eastern National. You can purchase these sets in a special box at Homestead’s bookstores, along with other commemorative quarter items such as key chains.
From a Beatrice bank: Banks in Beatrice, Nebraska will have quarter rolls available for exchange through the week of February 10, 2015.
From another local bank: In order to get the Homestead quarter from your bank (outside Beatrice), you can request that your local bank place an order for the quarters. They need to specify Homestead quarters when ordering from the Federal Reserve Banks.
From the U.S. Mint: Rolls of Homestead quarters will be available for order via the U.S. Mint website on the release date of February 9, 2015. They will be sold as a two-roll set; one from Philadelphia and one from Denver Mint. This product will sell for $32.95 + $4.95 shipping.They will also have $100 bags of quarters and bullions (5 oz. silver coins) available at the same time. Later in the month, you can find other Homestead quarter rolls, sets, and items for sale from the U.S. Mint’s catalog.

 Nebraska’s America the Beautiful Quarter – The U.S. Mint is issuing 56 different quarter coins featuring national parks and other national sites in an America the Beautiful Quarter Program recognizing one national park or other federal site from each state and territory. In all, there will be 56 quarters in the series, released between 2010 and 2021. The Homestead National Monument of America quarter will be released in February 2015. The coins’ release dates are based on when the chosen sites were first nationally established; Homestead’s 2015 quarter release reflects its 1936 designation as a national monument. It will be number 26 of the total 56 in the America the Beautiful Quarters Program.

Homestead National Monument of America is honored to have been selected for Nebraska’s quarter by Nebraska Governor Heineman in cooperation with Secretary of the Treasury Timothy Geithner and former Secretary of the Interior Ken Salazar. “U.S. Mint officials made a great choice in adding Homestead National Monument to this new series of quarters,” Gov. Heineman said.
