I was given a 2015 Redbook for Christmas and was checking up on the Park quarter-dollars, looking at what’s coming next, and how many of the various designs the mints are producing. The mintage figures, unfortunately, run a couple of years behind the cover date of the catalogs and are substantially complete only through 2013.
I learned that the mint has a new gimmick for collectors: so-called “circulation quality” coins from San Francisco, struck in limited numbers and sold at a premium (which in my opinion makes them something not intended to circulate. So as has been the case since the “S” mintmark departed circulating quarter-dollars after the 1954 coins, only Philadelphia and Denver strike quarters for actual circulation.
The distinction is something important—to me, anyway—because of something I noticed about this quarter, the 2012d “Acadia” struck at Denver:

Its mintage is only 21,606,000. (Some change from the often 500,000,000+ per mint, per design, that were being coined around the turn of the century.)
The small mintage made me curious, so I went through the production numbers. Turns out the 2012d Acadia was coined for circulation in the smallest quantity since this quarter struck in Philadelphia:
