by coinupdate.com

The year 2010 will include an interesting assortment of coins for collectors, including the launch of a brand new series, the continuation of several series with rotating designs, and two band new commemorative coin programs.

America the Beautiful QuarterThe America the Beautiful Quarters series will launch in 2010. This series follows the previous two programs which have provided rotating reverse designs since 1999. The new series features National Parks or other National Sites located in each of the state, territories, and the District of Columbia. The first coin to be released will feature Hot Springs National Park in Arkansas.

Abraham Lincoln DollarThe Presidential Dollar and First Spouse Gold coin series will enter their fourth year. A likely highlight will be the issuance of the Presidential Dollar featuring Abraham Lincoln and the First Spouse Gold Coin featuring Mary Todd Lincoln. The final coin in the "Liberty subset" of the First Spouse Gold Coin series will also be issued featuring the Liberty Head $2.50 Quarter Eagle obverse design from Christian Gobrecht.

2010 Lincoln CentThe Lincoln Cent will be issued with a new reverse design featuring the Union Shield. This design will permanently replace the prior Lincoln Memorial design following the four different reverse  designs issued for Lincoln's Bicentennial in 2009. The Union Shield reverse will be paired with a restored version of Victor D. Brenner's original obverse design.

Boy Scouts Silver DollarThe two commemorative coin programs for 2010 will each issue a silver dollar coin. The first will honor American Veterans Disabled for Life and the second will celebrate the Centennial of the Boy Scouts of America. Each coin is limited to a maximum mintage of 350,000 coins and may only be issued during the calendar year.

To start 2010, the status of most gold and silver bullion related issues remains unclear. The one ounce bullion Gold Eagle and Silver Eagle coins will be issued in mid-January after a delay. The collectible versions of the coins will remain contingent upon precious metals blanks supplies. The status of the Gold Buffalo bullion and collectible coins remains unclear. The 2010 Proof Platinum Eagle will feature the second design in the new Foundations of American Democracy reverse design series.
