First introduced in 2010, the United States Mint's America the Beautiful series is a multi-year program to honor 56 national parks and other national sites in each state, the District of Columbia, and U.S. Territories. Under this program, the Mint is scheduled to release five new reverse designs for the quarter-dollar each year through 2021. The coins are issued by the Mint in the order in which the featured site was first established as a national park.
Each Month, you will receive 2 perfectly conditioned, PR70 graded coins featuring the same national park. One will be a 90% silver proof and the other a copper-nickel clad proof; both bear the 'S' mint mark of the San Francisco Mint. This exciting new series makes a wonderful addition to your present Silver Coin of the Month Club selection. Priced at $99.95, it also carries 60BV.
The Hot Springs National Park quarter was the first coin released in the series, and if you order before the end of February, it will be the first coin you receive as part of this program. The park was first established as a national site in 1832, to conserve the water from the 47 natural springs that emerge from Hot Springs Mountain and to ensure that water was made available for drinking and therapy. The quarter's reverse image depicts the façade of the Hot Springs National Park headquarters building with a thermal fountain in the foreground.
The Hot Springs National Park quarter is only available as part of this new program until the February 29th. After that, we will begin offering the next coin in the series, the Yellowstone National Park quarter. If you hope to build a complete set of these flawless proof quarters, then order now before it's too late.
