The Mint produces the coins in rolls and bags at the Philadelphia, Denver, and San Francisco facilities. The three-roll set contains coins from all three facilities. Unlike the “P” and “D” mint mark quarters, those with the “S” mint mark will not be released into circulation.
The coin’s reverse (tails) design portrays an artist wearing a painter’s smock, painting outside Julian Alden Weir’s studio at Weir Farm. It was inspired by various images of the studio and Weir’s paintings created on the property, as well as descriptions of Weir and his fellow artists’ creative inspiration from the rural environment. The inscription A NATIONAL PARK FOR ART is included. Additional inscriptions are WEIR FARM, CONNECTICUT, 2020, and E PLURIBUS UNUM.
