The United States Mint has started accepting orders for the America the Beautiful Quarters Three-Coin Set featuring the Great Basin National Park Quarter. This represents the eighteenth release within the series.
The 2013 Great Basin Quarter depicts the beauty and unique qualities of a single Bristlecone Pine tree in the rocky glacial moraines where the trees grow. Inscriptions around the outer circumference read “Great Basin”, “Nevada”, “2013”, and “E Pluribus Unum”. The reverse was designed by Ronald D. Sanders and engraved by Renata Gordon. The obverse contains the 1932 portrait of George Washington designed by John Flanagan. Inscriptions read “United States of America”, “Liberty”, “In God We Trust”, and “Quarter Dollar”.
Each three-coin set includes three examples of the coin mounted on a durable plastic card. Two uncirculated coins are struck at the Philadelphia and Denver Mint and carry the “P” and “D” mint marks. One proof coin is struck at the San Francisco Mint and carries the “S” mint mark.
The front of the plastic card contains an image from Great basin National Park. The back of the card includes a certificate of authenticity, as well as brief descriptions of the park and site.
The product is priced at $9.95 per set. There are no stated product limits or household ordering limits imposed.
Previous three-coin sets remain available for the previous seventeen releases of the series.
