New Cents Head East
February 23, 2010

Collectors in Washington, D.C., will have the opportunity to get rolls of the 2010 cent with the new Shield reverse design on Thursday.

They will be available at two locations, Mint headquarters and Union Station.

The address of headquarters is 801 9th Street, N.W.

At Union Station, there is a kiosk at the east end in the Main Hall. The address is 50 Massachusetts Avenue, N.E., Washington, D.C. 20002.

Hours will be 10 a.m. to 4 p.m.

The public will be able to buy two to six rolls for face value in even dollar amounts, that is two rolls, $1; four rolls, $2 and six rolls, $3, the same terms as offered Feb. 11 in Springfield, Ill.,

This penny roll exchange as the Mint calls it was planned to occur simultaneously with the Illinois release ceremony, but Mother Nature had other plans that took the form of snow, shutting down the federal offices for four days.

Will Washington collectors take as many as the Springfield audience did, 20,000 rolls with a face value of $10,000?
