American Samoa Quarter First Day Cover
Yesterday, the US Mint released the 2009 American Samoa First Day Coin Cover. This represents the fourth release for the 2009 District of Columbia and U.S. Territories Quarters.
Each cover includes one American Samoa Quarter from Philadelphia and one from Denver that were produced on the first day of mintage. These two coins are mounted on a nicely designed display card with a 44 cent Flag stamp. The postmark is July 27, 2009 Pago Pago, AS, the day the coins were released to the public.
The maximum production for the American Samoa Covers is 20,000 units. This is actually lower than the prior releases for District of Columbia, Puerto Rico, and Guam, which all had a maximum of 25,000 units. To date, these releases have sold 14,454, 10,468, and 5,998 units, respectively.
The covers are priced at $14.95 each and can be found on the US Mint's website here.
