This year’s first of five America the Beautiful Quarters Three-Coin Sets is available on Tuesday, Jan. 11, 2014 at noon EST. Featuring quarters commemorating Great Smoky Mountains National Park in Tennessee, the United States Mint has the three-coin set listed for $9.95.
Designed by Chris Costello and sculpted by Renata Gordon, the reverse or tails side of the coins depict a historic log cabin found within the National Park. A segment of the lush green forest is also shown with a hawk circling above.
The three Great Smoky Mountains quarters, all in collector quality, are held within a display card that shows their obverse and reverse sides. The coins include:
- one uncirculated quarter from the United States Mint plant in Philadelphia
- one uncirculated quarter from the United States Mint plant in Denver
- one proof quarter from the United States Mint plant in San Francisco
As the first image in this article shows, the front of the display card offers a photographic image of the national park.
On the back side of the display card is information about the national park, specifications of the America the Beautiful Quarters and a United States Mint Certificate of Authenticity.
