The New 2022 Maya Angelou Quarter!

| CheerioCoins

My dad was recently going to Philadelphia, Pennsylvania for a funeral. I had to stay home because I had school but a few days after he got back he said he got a 2022-P (Wouldn't be a Dever mint mark because he's literally in Philadelphia) Maya Angelou quarter in change! Maya Angelou is a famous African American poet, writer and activist who is famous for her 1969 memoir I Know Why Caged Birds Singand is the first African American women on a U.S. quarter. Ihaven't found one yet and was excited because I had want one with the new obverse designed by LGF (Laura Gardin Fraser) and the new reverse designed by ESD (Emily S. Damstra). I have yet to find any other denomination of 2022 coins but I will do a blog on that as soon as I get them.
Along with this wonderful coin he said that some of my relatives at the funeral gave him some coins to give to me and of course my brother, @thatcoinguy. We each got half of the coins. It was mostly a bunch of U.S. currency that wasn't worth much but there were a few coins definitely worth sharing. The first a probably my favorite was the 1957-D 90% silver quarter which was a date I needed for my silver quarter folder and is worth around $5. Other coins/tokens included the 1981 'HONORING THE AMERICAN VETERAN' and 'PRESERVING AMERICAN FREEDOM' token thats worth around $10, a 1921 Austrailian Half Penny worth around 50c, a 1924 Morocco 50 Centimes coin worth about $1, and 1913 92.5% silver 5 cent coin worth about $5.
All of these are great coins but then again, it was a funeral and was sad to many people in my family. My Lib Walking Hlaf dollar still hasn't come and it makes me wonder if it got stuck in the mail or even got stolen which wouldn't be great :(. Also in roll searching I found this nicely toned 2019 River of No Return, Idaho quarter. it's nice because you won't find many toned coins from earlier years like 2019.
Thanks for reading my blog and have a great rest of your day!

If a grading service has your half dollar, it was insured. Call the grading service to see if they shipped. I hear they are backed up the coin must be insured.... Then call the post office, or if you have a tracking number you can look up shipping status online. Other than that you can file an insurance claim to get your money back. But it will be sad if you can't get that fabulous coin and have to settle for the cash. Hope you get your beauty back and don't have to settle for the insurance!

Hopefully, many years from now, you will still be coin collecting and have some of these and the value will far exceed the monetary. Words from an old guy forty plus years at this thing and still loving it.
