I bought the Christa McAuliffe coin. I liked her image and the reverse has a teacher showing children the stars. It was very well done IMHO. Last year I bought the women's suffrage movement coin. They were ok. I liked the period style well because I'm old enough to have read about it. The new designs of the quarters don't do much for me. They have already settled on the designs so there is no going back. I hope they grow on me.

I like the Maya Angelou design but think the others are not so nice. I like the idea of the coins but not the designs so much.

Who's in charge of deciding which women are important?

It seems to me that they can't help themselves anymore. They created the State Quarter program to spur a new generation of coin collectors. The State Quarter program has finished but they haven't. Next was the territories, then ATB and now this. After awhile some people will throw up their hands and say "I can't keep up with this." Or, "I just don't care anymore."

This is similar to why I stopped collecting baseball cards in 1992, waaaaaaay to many were produced and too many different "varieties"

They will keep doing it as long as there are buyers.

Not so much buyers as seigniorage profits They make much more money from the increased mintages due to people hoarding them from circulation than they do from sales to collectors.

Before the State Quarter program the mint typically made between 1.6 and 2 billion quarters a year. By the second year of the State Quarters they were up to around 5 billion per year. As the State Quarters and then the ATB quartes have continued interest has cooled, but in 2020 they still made 2.76 billion. That's 760 million more than the best year pre State Quarter, and the 760 million extra quarters represents $60 million in extra seigniorage revenue.

Good point. While my mind was dwelling on the various NCLT products, I must have forgotten the quarters are actually meant to circulate.

One reason illustrated designs so often don't translate well to a coin is the illustrations usually include shading, and even large areas of full black, whereas standard coins, of course, have no such shading.

Yup. I always reserve final judgment for when I see the coin design in actual relief.

I'll buy a 2022 clad proof quarter set. I'm done with silver ones. Their prices are too high on them and the state and park quarters were enough in silver.
