The America the Beautiful Series offers 56 coin designs in total spread across 12 date marks. In each year but one, the series offered five distinct designs representing one of the 50 states, Washington D.C., and the territories of Puerto Rico, the U.S. Virgin Islands, Northern Mariana Islands, American Samoa, and Guam.
Only one of these date marks, 2021, had fewer than five designs. The state of Alabama was the last issue in the series and the only option in 2021. In 2010, the San Francisco Mint began issuing five-coin proof quarter sets with the S mint mark. The coins feature 90% silver with 10% copper. This was the standard for all five-coin sets issued from 2010 to 2018. In 2019, the US Mint enhanced the silver content to .999 fine silver.
The obverse side of 2017 Silver US Mint Proof America the Beautiful Quarter Set specimens features the left-profile portrait of President George Washington. This is the second-longest-running design currently in use on American coins and is only surpassed by the effigy of President Abraham Lincoln on the US penny.
On the reverse of the coins in the 2017 Silver US Mint Proof ATB Quarter Sets are images represent five different federally protected sites. These designs represent Effigy Mounds National Monument, Frederick Douglass National Historic Site, Ozark National Scenic Riverways, Ellis Island and the Statue of Liberty National Monument, and George Rogers Clark National Historical Park.
