Daniel Carr is an exceptionally talented contemporary artist who produces all sorts of neat collectible coins, tokens, and medals. Taking a lead from the US Mint's Statehood Quarter Dollar program, Daniel created (and is creating) parodies of the official quarters, but with generally cynical themes and a sunglassed dude replacing George Washington.
These pieces are available in copper-nickel and yellow brass metals. They are, of course, not legal tender and are meant solely as collectible items.
You can see the collection at the Carr web sites [HERE] and [HERE].
As to value, these items sell initially around $20 to $25 US dollars each. When someone buys them from the Carr mint web site and then re-sells them to collectors on auction sites such as eBay, a secondary market is born. The secondary market reflects the true value of these pieces. However, the secondary market has not yet developed for the Carr statehood quarters. There are very few auction results available.
At this point all CoinQuest can do is guess at secondary market value. Our guess is:
DANIEL CARR STATEHOOD PARODY QUARTERS (copper-nickel and brass):
circulated: $5 US dollars approximate catalog value
fully uncirculated: $12
In other words, we believe the secondary market for these collectibles will be less than the primary ($20 to $25) market. This is unusual for Daniel Carr products, where the secondary market often exceeds the primary market. The rationale for our guess above is primarily based on three things:
