I have seen some off center coins online lets say 80-90% off center and you can tell that they are not round. how do such errors make it into circulation if a coin like that would not fit in rolls of coins?

just the random things that cross my mind early in the morning

I'm taking a shot in the dark here so I may be wrong but you can buy bags of coins straight from the mint so maybe they get out that way?

Depending on what year coins you are talking about. The mint does not have bags, of cents for example anymore. They now use ballistic bags that holds tons at a time instead of $50 bags of cents. The mint does sell small bags of quarters,so maybe they enter circulation that way?

I'm sure that lots of error coins come from the coin rolling services like Loomis, Brinks, Wells Fargo etc. They get coins from the mint in the HUGE ballistic bags as John1 pointed out. Here's an image of the bag in a steel frame "Pallet."

If not for the surcharge of $1,500 on the quarters and $11,900 on the one dollars coins, I think it would be kind of cool to go through 200,000 and 140,000 quarters and dollars respectively. I'd also like to see the look on the bank teller's face when I brought in fifty grand in quarters to deposit.



Here's the info for ordering. Only ATB Quarters and SAC Innovations Dollars are listed in the Bulk Coin Program from the mint.

America the Beautiful Quarters

To purchase America the Beautiful ( ATB) Quarters through the Circulating Bulk Purchase Program, customers (individuals or businesses) must:

purchase the minimum of one bulk bag, which contains 200,000 coins
pay for the coins at face value ($50,000) plus a processing fee, which equals 3% percent of total order value ($1,500 per bag)
pay in full and in advance via electronic funds transfer to the United States Mint (instructions are provided after the order is entered and the inventory is confirmed)
assume all shipping costs and arrange pick up to receive coins at the dock of United States Mint facilities in Philadelphia or Denver for coins manufactured in Philadelphia or Denver, respectively

The sad part of this, is just like when you used to get bags of coins, you have the same coins over and over from the same dies and machines that filled that pallet. So if something was in them, you make out like a bandit. But if not, you have change for the rest of your life to spend. So its either hit and miss, or miss and miss on one of these. (to rich for my blood) I'll stick to rolls. That I can afford.
