The U.S. Mint has released the 2016 America the Beautiful Quarters Proof Set today, January 11. The set costs $14.95 and includes all five 2016 America the Beautiful quarters in Proof format, with the San Francisco Mint’s “S” mint mark included on each obverse.
2016’s ATB quarter designs feature the following sites:
- Shawnee National Forest in Illinois,
- Cumberland Gap National Historical Park in Kentucky,
- Harpers Ferry National Historical Park in West Virginia,
- Theodore Roosevelt National Park in North Dakota and,
- Fort Moultrie (Fort Sumter National Monument) in South Carolina.
All ATB quarters share an obverse that includes John Flanagan’s 1932 portrait of George Washington.
While the Shawnee and Fort Moultrie Proof quarters were first issued last week with the release of the 2016 Birth Set and the 2016 Happy Birthday Coin Set, today’s ATB Proof Set launch provides collectors with their first opportunity to purchase the Cumberland Gap, Harpers Ferry, and Theodore Roosevelt quarters. The Mint has not established a product limit or household order restriction for this release.
This marks the seventh year of the America the Beautiful quarters program, which will have issued 56 unique designs by the time of its conclusion in 2021. Larger images of these quarters, as well as more information on each design, can be viewed here.
