Today, June 24, the United States Mint began selling 2014 Arches National Park Quarters Three-Coin Sets.
This newest America the Beautiful Quarter Three-Coin Set is the third issued this year and the 23rd in the series. Coins of the set honor the national park in Utah. Arches quarters entered circulation on June 9, 2014 with the official launch ceremony held three days earlier.
Regular U.S. Mint pricing is $9.95 with subscription pricing 10% less at $8.95. Subscribers are Mint customers who made an earlier commitment to order new sets as they are released.
Arches Quarters Three-Coin Sets include two uncirculated quarters and one proof quarter. These three coins are mounted on an attractive and durable display card:
- one uncirculated 2014-P Arches quarter,
- one uncirculated 2014-D Arches quarter, and
- one proof 2014-S Arches quarter
As seen in the topmost images, the front of the three-coin set has a picturesque image of Delicate Arch with surrounding scenery and the back offers summary information about the park, the three quarters and a United States Mint Certificate of Authenticity.
Designs of Arches Quarters
Arches quarter obverses, like all America the Beautiful Quarters, bear the 1932 portrait of George Washington by John Flanagan. Inscriptions around the portrait read, "UNITED STATES OF AMERICA," "LIBERTY," "IN GOD WE TRUST" and "QUARTER DOLLAR." A one-letter mint mark also appears with "D" is for the U.S. Mint facility in Denver, CO; "P" is for the U.S. Mint facility in Philadelphia, PA; and "S" is for the U.S. Mint facility in San Francisco, CA.
Reverses bear Donna Weaver’s design and Charles L. Vickers sculpt of the park’s Delicate Arch with La Sal Mountains in the background. Inscriptions encircling the scene read, "ARCHES," "UTAH," "2014" and "E PLURIBUS UNUM."
