Puerto Rico Quarter First Day Cover
The United States Mint will offer the Puerto Rico Official First Day Coin Cover on
This will be the second coin cover offered for the 2009 District of Columbia and US Territories Quarters Program. The first offering for the District of Columbia Coin Cover only recently went on sale on April 24, after the initial release date was delayed.
The Puerto Rico Coin Cover will feature two Puerto Rico Quarters, one each from the Philadelphia and Denver Mints. The quarters will be mounted on a custom display card with a canceled 42 cent postage stamp. The post mark will be March 30, 2009 from San Juan, PR.
The covers will be priced at $14.95 each and will be limited to 25,000 units.
A few readers commented in the post about the prior release that these First Day Covers might have the potential to be relatively quick sell outs. With the US Mint's shrinking product line, customers might consider products that they have not previously collected. Products containing the 2009 Quarters also seem to be quite popular with numerous bags and rolls products already sold out. It would not take a lot of additional demand to quickly exhaust the 25,000 production run.
