This is the first year of the 5 coin Proof Set of the America the Beautiful Quarters Program. Five different national parks or sites are featured in the set. The quarters were struck by the San Francisco Mint, with an S mint mark on the obverse, just below IN GOD WE TRUST. These Proof ATB Quarters contain 90% silver with 10% copper. The ATB Silver Bullion Program Quarters were produced in 5 ounce, .999 fine silver as an investment-grade silver bullion coin.
The 2010 America the Beautiful Quarters Proof Set includes 5 quarters with reverse designs that feature the following national treasures – Hot Springs National Park in Arkansas, Yellowstone National Park in Wyoming, Yosemite National Park in California, Grand Canyon National Park in Arizona, and Mt. Hood National Forest in Oregon.
Every America the Beautiful Quarter has the same obverse design, a left-facing portrait of President George Washington. There was a competition in 1932 to create the design for the Washington Silver Quarter. John Flanagan created the winning design, and it has proven to be such a classic that it has been on the obverse of the Washington Quarter ever since. In 1999, the US Mint slightly modified the design for its 50 State Quarters Program. The US Mint later reverted it back to John Flanagan’s original design for use in the ATB Quarters Program.
The 2010 US Mint Silver Proof ATB Sets come in their original mint packaging that features a protective hard plastic case with an outer box. The coins in their plastic case will be in good condition, however, it is possible that the outer box may show some signs of wear and tear.
