America the Beautiful Quarters Circulating Coin Set
Annual Circulating Coin Sets have 10 quarters. Five are from the U.S. Mint facility in Denver and five from the U.S. Mint facility in Philadelphia. This year’s quarters bear designs honoring:
- White Mountain National Forest (New Hampshire),
- Perry’s Victory and International Peace Memorial (Ohio),
- Great Basin National Park (Nevada),
- Fort McHenry National Monument and Historic Shrine (Maryland), and
- Mount Rushmore National Memorial (South Dakota)
The packaging for this set is designed as a temporary holder since the coins may easily be retrieved. The United States Mint advertises the product packaging as a way to get the quarters for "albums and other collecting tools."
Mount Rushmore Quarters Three-Coin Set
The latest America the Beautiful Quarters Three-Coin Set marks the 20th release in the series and the fifth and final for this year. Found within an attractive card are three encapsulated Mount Rushmore quarters in two different qualities for collectors. They are:
- an uncirculated quarter from the U.S. Mint facility at Philadelphia,
- an uncirculated quarter from the U.S. Mint facility at Denver and
- a proof quarter from the U.S. Mint facility at San Francisco
These quarters are not designed for easy removal since that is not intended. Instead, the quarters are meant for display within the presentation card which has an image of Mount Rushmore, information about it, the quarter’s design and a Certificate of Authenticity.
