The PCGS 2020 Quarter Quest Collect and Win Prizes

Due to our temporary office closure, the below competition guidelines are subject to change.

In order to give back to our community during these uncertain times, we will be repurposing the Weir Farms and American Samoa W-Quarter bounties into a series of online giveaways. There will be no First Discovery for Weir Farms or American Samoa. First Week and Early Find pedigrees will still be available.

PCGS is happy to announce the latest hunt for modern numismatic rarities with the 2020 PCGS Quarter Quest just in time for the Great American Coin Hunt and National Coin Week. This program is designed to engage numismatists from around the country to cherrypick the elusive West Point minted quarters from circulation. PCGS graded 2019-W quarters were seen in auction with soaring prices with collectors taking to the PCGS Set Registry® to compete for the highest ranked set.

In addition to being another set of circulating West Point minted rarities, these coins will feature a first for U.S. Quarters, a “V75” privy mark denoting the 75th anniversary of World War II.

See additional information and guidelines below! Happy Hunting!
