Located along the eastern border of Utah is the Arches National Park. Here, the unique landscape has created a one-of-a-kind attraction not found in many places throughout the world. The region sits atop a large underground evaporite layer, or salt bed. As time and wind have eroded the salt layer, freestanding sandstone arches formed. The park includes an estimated 2,000 of these unique geological formations.
America the Beautiful is a 56-coin series from the United States Mint honoring a monument, moment, park, or national forest from across America. The series was launched in 2010, and includes five new coin designs each year. When the program concludes in 2021, all 50 states, five territories, and the federal district will be represented.
Delicate Arch, the most famous sandstone formation in Arches National Park, is featured on the obverse side of these coins. President George Washington’s left-profile bust, as seen on the common quarter, is used on the reverse.
Each of the coins in this product listing is available in near-perfect MS69 condition. This means each coin still has its full, original luster, but may have a maximum of two minor detracting marks, flaws, blemishes, or hairlines. Though this is a bullion coin, it does have a rare deeply-mirrored, proof-like finish.
