I just went to the U.S. mint website to see if there were any updates on the release of this amazing quarter series... and to my surprise they have been not only delayed, but delayed to a TBD date...

Anyone knows why this is happening?

I am guessing a delivery delay, since the circulation, rolls, and bags are all still on schedule.

Probably just running behind schedule on striking the proof coins, they were ambitious to have them originally scheduled for Feb.10th to begin with in my opinion.

Glad someone is looking forward to these. After the 50 States it seemed like the mint was trying to come up with anything they possibly could to put on quarters. I lost interest quickly. But I can understand how someone might have fun looking for all the different designs.

Though I'm not directly looking forward to the proof set releases or anything direct from the mint, I am excited for the new designs.

I could argue for days why it's frustrating that we have had the same portraits for so long on our coins, so a change of portrait is awesome to finally see, and a change of reverse into a smaller program (wish it could be a single reverse.... one day ) is nice as well

It's funny, I had no interest in these, I lost interest in clad coinage long time ago, but my wife asked me if I was going to get these and I said no. She asks me if "I don't think women should be on coinage". And just like that I'm now on enrollment for the set in silver.

Sometimes you collect just because some one else is interested.

Miss Liberty although represented by actual woman in the example of Teresa Di Francisci for the Peace dollar or Anna Willess Williams as the model for the Morgan dollar, is really a symbol an idea (like Columbia) but not an actual person. Other than the Sacagawea dollar and the Susan B. Anthony dollar the majority of coin have featured man (mostly ugly and some that are ugly and bald). The release of a quarter portraying real women is the first instance in which a coin used by the masses (Silver dollars and Clad dollars did not circulate widely) will portray a women.

As to my reason for not wanting to initially collect these coins is that I am really not interested in clad coinage. The State Quarters program I really liked as it was a new way to collect, but with the continuation of the ATB and now the Women quarter and then the Sports quarters it gets old. If I'm going to collect these, I would only do silver, hence why I signed up for the Silver enrollment. Not to mention my wife is excited which means I don't have to use my hobby money for these, so its a win/win. I'll do a complete collection (type set), in silver (which is so much better than clad) and I don't have to fund it from my hobby fund. Win all around.

Very well, how about show her some 19th century coins from Britain featuring different portraits of Victoria? Or perhaps 20th century Dutch coins featuring different portraits of three queens in succession (121 years of female rulers, 1892-2013!). Denmark is another option.

True but my wife was talking about USA coins. The rest of the world mostly banished ugly old and bald men off of coins and currency. Sadly its still a thing in the US to portray dead men on our coins and currency.

Queen Isabella on Columbian Exhibition quarter, Virginia Dare Roanoke half dollar, Eunice Shiver Special Olympics dollar, Dolly Madison silver dollar, and if you want to ignore those because they were all commemoratives Helen Keller Alabama State Quarter.
