Washington — The United States Mint will begin accepting orders for the America the Beautiful Quarters Three-Coin Set with quarters honoring San Antonio Missions National Historical Park beginning on September 10 at noon EDT.
The America the Beautiful Quarters Three-Coin Sets contain an Uncirculated quarter from the Philadelphia Mint, an Uncirculated quarter from the Denver Mint, and a Proof quarter from the San Francisco Mint.
Quarters in the set representing San Antonio Missions National Historical Park (product code 19AG) have a reverse (tails) design that depicts elements of the Spanish Colonial real coin to pay tribute to the missions. Within the quadrants are symbols of the missions: Wheat symbolizes farming, the arches and bell symbolize community, a lion represents Spanish cultural heritage, and a symbol of the San Antonio River represents irrigation methods and life-sustaining resources. Inscriptions are SAN ANTONIO MISSIONS, TEXAS, 2019, and E PLURIBUS UNUM.
The obverse (heads) of the coins depicts the 1932 portrait of George Washington by John Flanagan, which has been restored to bring out subtle details and the beauty of the original model. Inscriptions are UNITED STATES OF AMERICA, LIBERTY, IN GOD WE TRUST, and QUARTER DOLLAR.
All three coins are mounted on a durable plastic card with an image of San Antonio Missions National Historical Park. The certificate of authenticity is printed on the back of the card.
The Mint has priced the America the Beautiful Three-Coin Sets at $9.95. Orders will be accepted online and 1-800-USA-MINT (872-6468). Hearing and speech-impaired customers with TTY equipment may order at 1-888-321-MINT. Visit the Mint’s website for information about shipping options.
A limited supply of sets will be available for purchase over the counter at United States Mint sales centers located at Denver, Philadelphia, and Washington, D.C.
