Good morning CoinCommunity!

I was looking through some pocket change and encountered a 2000 New Hampshire "Man In The Mountain" Quarter. Being from New England, it sparks a lot of nostalgia for me, having seen him a great many times in my life. I then recalled how he fell on May 3rd, 2003. RIP Man In The Mountain. He has been gone almost a full 18 years now, and there are entire generations who never got to see him in his glory.

After I was done reminiscing on the nostalgic piece of it, I got to thinking about how this quarter was designed to portray a national landmark, and how that landmark is no longer there. Being still fairly new to coins and coin collecting, I am not sure exactly how coin valuation is done in regards to things like this. Being that the Man In The Mountain is gone, does this mean that the 2000 New Hampshire Quarter will be worth more than its face value over time? (I understand that most coins in great shape will increase in value over time, but I wonder if this one will increase based on the fact that it documents a piece of national history that is no longer around?)

What do you all think? I'm eager to hear your opinions!

One of the more enjoyable aspects of coin collecting is the nostalgia for me as well, so I can relate!

As for the value, I see no increase due to that. The obverse also has a piece of history not around!

So many were minted, only your high grade examples will hold their premium.

Good story. I wouldn't count on any uptick in value (beyond today's level)--unless thousands of people in the greater Maine/Vermont/New Hampshire region hoard every last one of these coins they come across. Consider that 1,169,016,000 New Hampshire coins were minted a couple decades ago.

Now, if you could find an example with heavy die cracks passing through The Man In The Mountain...

That's fair lol in regards to Washington. But Washington was a man rather than a landmark, I wonder if the two are comparable.

Setting a value on modern coinage is tricky. Over time, and by that many years, a significant amount seems out of the question. However, as one who participates in the Heritage Auctions I did a quick check on past sales. One sold in 2007, graded ANACS AU for $6 and another grading PCGS MS68 closed at $67, while a record $307 (at least for Heritage) was paid for an NGC MS68 in 2013.

Let's put it this way. With a mintage of over 1.1 billion coins, every man, woman, and child in the country can have THREE of them. If the population of the country were to triple there would still be enough that every single person could have one. With availability like that they will NOT be getting any significant value over face value.
