The 2020 America the Beautiful circulating quarter set is available from the Mint Oct. 8. It marks the final five-coin set in the America the Beautiful quarter program, which ends in 2021.
The set contains five circulating coins from the Philadelphia mint and five circulating coins from the Denver mint with reverse designs honoring the National Park of American Samoa, Weir Farm National Historic Site (Connecticut), Salt River Bay National Historical Park and Ecological Preserve (U.S. Virgin Islands), Marsh-Billings-Rockefeller National Historical Park (Vermont) and Tallgrass Prairie National Preserve (Kansas).
The America the Beautiful Quarters coins feature a common obverse (heads) that depicts the restored 1932 portrait of George Washington by sculptor John Flanagan.
The coins come in a plastic card that allows the coins to be removed if desired.
The set is priced at $10 and is available for purchase online only via catalog.usmint.gov. To reduce the risk of employee exposure to COVID-19 in the workplace, the Mint’s sales centers are closed until further notice.
The Mint launched the America the Beautiful quarters program in 2010 as authorized by the America’s Beautiful National Parks Quarter Dollar Coin Act of 2008. The Act called for the Mint to issue 56 quarters with reverse designs depicting national parks and other national sites in each state or territory and the District of Columbia. 2020 marks the 11th year of the program. A final coin honoring Tuskegee Airmen National Historic Site in Alabama will be issued in 2021, marking the program’s conclusion.
