Each of the set’s quarters was produced at the San Francisco Mint and carries the facility’s ‘S’ mint mark. The five coins bear reverse designs emblematic of the following locations:
- National Park of American Samoa in the U.S. territory of American Samoa
- Weir Farm National Historic Site located in the state of Connecticut
- Salt River Bay National Historical Park and Ecological Preserve in the U.S. Virgin Islands territory
- Marsh-Billings-Rockefeller National Historical Park in Vermont, and
- Tallgrass Prairie National Preserve of Kansas
The national sites depicted on this year’s quarters represent the fifty-first through fifty-fifth in the America the Beautiful series. The U.S. Mint program debuted in 2010 and has seen five coin designs annually. It will end next year with one final design. At that time, a site will have been honoured from each of the fifty states, the District of Columbia and the five U.S. territories.
All program coins share the same obverse portrait of George Washington. The John Flanagan effigy first appeared on the 1932 circulating quarter dollar and has been on the coin, with a few changes, ever since.
The set is housed in a U.S. Mint box with a certificate of authenticity.
Mirrorlike Proof finish adds further beauty with an impressive shine.
