Quarter-dollars have never been quite this gorgeous. Achieved using modern gold plating techniques, these special edition coins are encased in pure 24 karat gold for a presentation that's both dramatic and luxurious. With a limited run expected, few people will ever have the chance to own a set of these pieces.
Featured scenery includes El Yunque National Park in Puerto Rico, Chaco Culture National Park in New Mexico, Acadia National Park in Maine, Hawai'i Volcanoes National Park in Hawaii, the Great Sand Dunes National Park in Colorado and many more, with the U.S. Mint releasing five new landscapes each year.
Available in sets of 5 each, these quarter-dollars arrive secured in a formal blue gift box. Sets are available according to completed mint year, from 2010 up to 2014.
Originally released as part of the U.S. Mint's America the Beautiful quarters program, these coins have been plated with gold in order to transform them into unique items for collectors. Starting in 2010 and continuing until 2021, the U.S. Mint will release 56 different varieties of quarter-dollars, with each piece depicting a separate scene from nationally protected federal sites lands in every state and territory. Each set commemorates and celebrates the emblematic natural side of American heritage.
