Hey Guys,

I was just looking at the Red Book and noticed that the 2009 DC & Territorial Quarters were produced seperately from the 1999-2008 quarters.

Many people package them along with the state quarters like they are worth dirt.

Will they become big bucks some day?

DH

Maybe a small premium for uncirculated ones

I think that series will be one of the most expensive to own in 20-40 years.

I kept P&D rolls of them, just in case. They had much smaller mintages than statehood quarters, and the ATB quarters seem pretty low too.

ATB mintages are really low. As I recall, there are more Rhode Island quarters than all the 2010 and 2011 ATB's combined!

Good afcop13,

Yeah, except there are lots of people speculating, and when this happens, it is never a sleeper. It's more of a dozer, as soon as people think they are worth something the market gets flooded.

I "covered my bases" with the 2009 Territories.
Got the Uncirc's.
Got the Proofs.
Got the Silver Proofs.
Got a B.U. U.S. Mint bag of 100 D.C. quarters.
And I had saved back some BU rolls of each one, but have since just cashed them these rolls in.

Despite the low mintages of these and the ATB's....I just don't think it will translate into a "must have" series or even a future "sleeper".
I doubt that enough years will go by, (in my lifetime) to see any premiums worthwhile on any of these.
But, as a collector, I have to have them to continue with my albums, so in that sense they ARE "Must Have" already for me ! ......

I am keeping all the territories and ATB coins I find in circulation. I cant see buying rolls or uncirculated sets at a premium. I may pick up some extra silver proof sets.

There does seem to be serious demand for state quarter errors and varieties, selling above what I would expect of similar errors and varieties in other series. Also, the 1999 silver proof set goes for way above other years. It is relatively lower mintage, but I think a major reason for the price compared to e.g. 1998 is the low mintage combined with the fact that it's the first year for state quarters.

2009 is a lower mintage year for all denominations, but I think the territories got saved by everybody and their grandmother the way the states did, so I don't see them ever becoming scarce.

I personally have been avoiding state and territory quarters like they were new Star Wars movies, but everybody else seems to have rolls and rolls stowed away.

While it's true that there were much fewer DC/Territorial quarters minted in 2009 than the last few years of state quarters, "fewer" is a relative term - there were still many many millions of 2009 quarters minted. There will probably be a slight premium someday, but nothing to get excited about. My local coin shop has them for just over face value.

I do like them and have one of each in my collection. Future value? Not my concern.

I don't think that they will ever be big bucks, but I do think that they will carry a premium over the State Quarters that ended in 2008. Mostly only because of the lower mintage of the Territorial quarters.

Big bucks? No. And Krause was onto this by the time their 2010 North American edition came out with an article detailing such low mintage.
