Puerto Rico Quarter First Day Cover

The United States Mint will offer the Puerto Rico Official First Day Coin Cover on May 12, 2009 at 12:00 Noon ET May 26, 2009 at 12:00 Noon ET. (Release date revised by US Mint.)

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.

I recently purchased First Spouse medal sets, First Day coin covers, and bags of DC/US Territoire quarters after being a long-time, core-product-only buyer. Some of the designs of these products are sort of interesting, but mostly I'm picking them up because I'm betting that they will go up in value, precisely because more people are also picking up the purchase pace of those products proudly, Peter puckered pewter plaster probably palsy poulty-priced pretty prawn proletariat plauseability, planned a plus-perfect denoumont ... sorry, wait ... precisely because there is more demand, driven by a dearth of products in other areas ... bring back my beloved fractional plats! O, damned Mint, what hast thou done?!!

I'm anxious to see the actual cover. I think the design of the Puerto Rico coin is outstanding. I love looking at it. Guam, on the other hand ...
