One of the most popular coin programs in the United States today is the America the Beautiful coin series. Building upon the success of the state quarters program, America the Beautiful quarters celebrate the history of the nation’s national forests, national parks, and historic monuments. While the state quarters program (1999-2008), and subsequent federal district and territories program (2009), honored national sites on circulation quarters, the ATB Silver Coins series is a separate program.
All America the Beautiful bullion coins contain 5 oz of .999 fine silver. These coins are larger than the standard circulation quarter released by the United States Mint, and these America the Beautiful quarters are not designed for release into circulation, even though each is considered legal tender.
America the Beautiful is a 56-coin series that honors one representative landmark, forest, or park from each jurisdiction. The program was authorized with passage of the America’s Beautiful National Parks Quarter Dollar Coin Act of 2008. Under the tenets of the program, the US Mint will release five new coin designs representing five jurisdictions each year. The program debuted in 2010, and is scheduled to run through 2021, with the Secretary of the Treasury holding the power to extend the program through 2033.
On the reverse side of each coin in the America the Beautiful series is a unique image of a national park, forest, or landmark from each state, territory, or district. The coin designs were chosen through a collaborative selection process that involved former Secretary of the Treasury Timothy Geithner, former Secretary of the Interior Kenneth Salazar, and the governor or chief executive of the jurisdiction in question.
The obverse side of each coin resembles the obverse of a standard American quarter. The left-profile portrait of President George Washington, the nation’s first elected leader, was refined in 1932 by John Flanagan based upon an original sculpture created by William Cousins in 1786. Engravings on this side of the coin include “United States of America,” “Liberty,” and the motto “In God We Trust.”
The America the Beautiful coin series honored a new set of five jurisdictions on the 2012 ATB Silver Coins, including the first territory to be featured on an ATB coin. The states and territories covered in the 2012 production year include:
These America the Beautiful coins were struck by the United States Mint at two of its coining facilities. The Denver Mint and Philadelphia Mint bear the responsibility for producing 2012 ATB Silver Coins, as well as those struck during other years of the program.
