At the mid-year mark, circulating coin production is ahead of the levels of last year by about 15%. From January through June 2010, production had reached 3,597.43 million. For all of 2010, circulating coin production had reached 6,373.11 million.
For 2011, the mid year figures show that cents accounted for more than 58% of production. This was followed by dimes, which accounted for nearly 20% of production. From a personal perspective, cents and dimes have been the only 2011-dated coins that I have encountered in circulation.
The United States Mint has provided the preliminary production figures for the Olympic National Park Quarter. With 61 million produced across both facilities, the total is almost exactly in line with the previous two designs for the year. The US Mint does reserve the right to restart production of any design for the America the Beautiful Quarters Program within the year of release, so these numbers should not be considered final.
Shown below are all of the production levels by design that have been released by the US Mint so far. The figures for the listed Presidential Dollars can be considered final.
