(I like this stinky pun!  To me, it has a fresher funk.  Not the same ol’ same ol’ pun.  It’s been a while since we’ve had a coin, or any money, pun.  Right?

All of today’s clue words are familiar old friends.  Three of the jumbles are coming up as new, but we’ve definitely seen “gilco” at some time in the past.  The answer letter layout was an interesting thirteen letter jumble.  Nothing obvious it.

A very imaginative cartoon of the coin depository of a pinball machine.  I liked that there were some of those state quarters, from the oughts!  I collected the whole series.  Then they started coming out with the national parks quarters, but with zero publicity!  To this day, I don’t understand why there was a big promotion for the fifty states quarters, but nothing for the parks!  I’ve saved some of them too, but I have no idea what’s out there, or if they’re still issuing them.  Oh, well.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

    Definitely still issuing them, UR. Just came out with American Samoa National Park, the infamous fruit bat quarter! Be on the lookout for any with the “W” mintmark. They’re making only 2 million of each.

    Cool, hal! What is the “W” about? What mint is that? Do you know why they’re not promoting the parks series like they did the states? — YUR

    “W” mintmark means they were struck at the West Point mint, in New York. The 2 million W quarters are being randomly mixed into P (Philadelphia) and D (Denver) bags, so you have to search bankrolls to find them! No option to order a roll of Ws straight from the mint. There’s a pretty devoted band of searchers, rewarded by finding W quarters that can sell for $20 or $30 on eBay. Because of COVID-19, people aren’t using cash much these days … like most things, coin collecting must take a back seat to control the pandemic. I hope the mint will promote these quarters more, once things get back to (relatively) normal!

    Agreed: fresh, clever final answer and cartoon. I struggled with this one. I got the concept they were going for but didn’t focus enough on the *denomination* of the coins in the cartoon which makes the answer much easier to see. D’oh!

    Very cool, hal. How long have they been minting at West Point? Can any of the national park quarters potentially have the W? I think the majority of my park quarters are P. One D. I’ll keep my eyes open for the W’s! — YUR

    You can find W mintmark on quarters dated 2019 (Lowell, American Memorial Park, War in the Pacific, San Antonio Missions, Frank Church River of No Return) and 2020 (American Samoa and Weir Farm, so far). West Point Mint has been making US coins since 1974, mostly without mintmarks (quarters and cents in the 1970s and ’80s) or specialty coins (commemorative, bullion, and “bonus” coins in proof and mint sets). The America The Beautiful quarters are the first they’ve made for general circulation. Happy hunting!
