Starting in 2010, the America the Beautiful Coin Series is a collection of 56 quarter-dollar coins that feature a national park or site.

The America the Beautiful Coin series is a program created by the United States Mint to honor the beautiful national parks and other national sites located in America, as well as in the District of Columbia, the Virgin Islands, Guam, Puerto Rico, Northern Mariana Islands, and American Samoa. Since 2010, the mint has issued five America the Beautiful Coin designs each year, and will continue to do so until the very last coin from the program is released in 2021.

All coins from the series will have the same obverse design of a slightly modified version of the original portrait featured on the Washington Quarter, as well as the inscriptions UNITED STATES OF AMERICA and QUARTER DOLLAR. The engravings LIBERTY and IN GOD WE TRUST are also featured on the obverse. However, as every coin represents a particular national landmark, monument or site, each of the 56 coins will have a completely unique image on their reverse side.

The US Department of the Interior, the US Commission of Fine Arts and the Citizens Coinage Advisory are just some of the parties who got together to decide which reverse images would be included in the America the Beautiful Coin Series. All final designs were approved by the Secretary of the Treasury.

America the Beautiful Quarters Program

As previously mentioned, the United States Mint issues only five America the Beautiful Coin designs every year, starting from 2010. There is a total of 56 coins in the program, all of which boast an enormous 3-inch diameter. The coins are issued in the order in which the featured site was first established, and the final coin from the collection will be released in 2021. Below is a breakdown of the jurisdiction and designs (national site), along with the year in which each coin has been released or will appear.

Inspired By the State Quarters Program

The stunning American the Beautiful Coin series was developed after the success of the State Quarters, a special program of 25-cent pieces that went into circulation between 1999 and 2008. Unlike the resilient State Quarters that are made of a copper-nickel alloy, the America the Beautiful Coins have been designed to appeal to collectors and investors wishing to buy coins that contain .999 pure silver.

Each of the coins from both collections has a face value of 25 cents and feature the same obverse image of President George Washington. As the America the Beautiful Coins boast a 5 oz. weight, they are much larger than the circulated State Quarters and are worth more than their face value alone. The United States Mint has not only released bullion American the Beautiful Coins but also collector’s versions that feature a proof finish.

Purchase Circulated or Uncirculated America the Beautiful Silver Coins

Available in two variants, America the Beautiful Coins are backed by the U.S. government and feature eye-catching reverse images that have been chosen for their beauty or historical significance. You should also be aware that American the Beautiful Coins are produced in limited quantities and, as a result, each design is snapped up quickly.

Often referred to as the ATB series, America the Beautiful Coins can be found in both circulated and uncirculated condition. All circulated bullion America the Beautiful Coins have a mirror-like finish and are considered legal tender. The uncirculated versions tend to be more popular among collectors for their attractive matte finish. Furthermore, the uncirculated (numismatic) America the Beautiful Silver Coins have a P mintmark because they are struck at the Philadelphia Mint.

Here at Capital Gold Group, we’re proud to offer you an easy and convenient way to purchase circulated or uncirculated silver bullion coins. If you’d like to add America the Beautiful Silver Coins to your collection, portfolio or precious metal IRA, please don’t hesitate to contact us.
