2010 Gold Coins

April 5, 2010 – Brand new series are in store for coin collectors as the US Mint announces the much-awaited introduction of 2010 gold coins.

For the first time America the Beautiful Quarters series will be launched. Features will be National Parks and National sites located in each of the 50 states, territories and the District of Columbia. The first coin to be released (April 19) will feature the Hot Springs National Park in Arkansas.

A commemorative coin honoring American Veterans Disabled for Life will also be issued for the first time. The coin will be in silver dollar denomination. A maximum limit of only 350,000 coins is planned for the year.

Another commemorative coin, already released, marks the Centennial of the Boy Scouts of America. Like the American Veterans Disabled for Life coin, it is in silver dollar denomination and limited to a maximum of only 350,000 for the first year.

The Presidential Dollar series, now on its fourth year, will feature Abraham Lincoln and the First Spouse Gold coin series, now also on its fourth year, will feature Mary Todd Lincoln on 2010 gold coins. Scheduled for final issuance is the “Liberty subset” of the First Spouse Gold Coin Series featuring the Liberty Head $2.50 Quarter Eagle obverse design from Christian Gobrecht,

The Union Shield will be the new feature of the reverse design of the Lincoln Cent. It will permanently replace the previous Lincoln Memorial design following the four different reverse designs issued for the Lincoln Bicentennial in 2009. The Union Shield reverse will be paired with a restored version of Victor D. Brenner’s original obverse design.
