An option to get circulation quality examples of all five 2014-dated national park quarters opens on Thursday, November 13, 2014 with the release of the America the Beautiful 2014 Quarters Circulating Coin Set.
Priced at $5.95, the 10-quarter set will be released for sale to the public beginning at Noon (Eastern) on the 13th.
"The 2014 America the Beautiful Quarters Circulating Coin Set™ contains one each of the five circulating 2014 America the Beautiful Quarters minted in Philadelphia and one each of the five circulated America the Beautiful Quarters minted in Denver for a total of 10 coins," describes the United States Mint on its website."
Specifically, included within the coin set are:
- 2014 P & D Great Smoky Mountains National Park Quarters
- 2014 P & D Shenandoah National Park Quarters
- 2014 P & D Arches National Park Quarters
- 2014 P & D Great Sand Dunes National Park Quarters
- 2014 P & D Everglades National Park Quarters
The above listed quarters represent national parks in Tennessee, Virginia, Utah, Colorado and Florida.
Each is struck to circulation quality. Of note, however, none of the included quarters have actually been issued into circulation. After production, instead of being shipped to the Federal Reserve Banks, these coins were set aside for inclusion in this circulating coin set.
"The packaging allows customers to easily open it if desired so the coins may be removed and placed into albums or other collecting tools," describes the Mint.
Coins of the America the Beautiful Quarters® Program debuted in 2010. Five new quarters are issued annually in the series each representing a site of national interest from a different state, U.S. territory or the District of Columbia. The series is scheduled to be completed in 2021 when fifty-six new coins have been issued. These 2014 National Park Quarters represent the twenty-first through twenty-fifth of the program.
Shown on the obverse of all program coins is a portrait of President George Washington, as originally designed by John Flanagan. The reverse contains the designs emblematic of the honored site.
