Today, May 2, the United States Mint launched its three-coin set of 2016 Cumberland Gap quarters for $9.95. Coins in the set commemorate the national historical park in Kentucky and feature a design on the reverse side that is emblematic of it.
This newest America the Beautiful Quarters Three-Coin Set is the second release this year and the 32nd overall in the series.
Cumberland quarters entered circulation in April, and the U.S. Mint is also selling rolls and bags of them in circulating quality. Quarters in this new set are unlike those found in circulation because they are produced in collector quality finishes. The set includes:
- One uncirculated coin from the U.S. Mint facility in Denver with a ‘D’ mint mark
- One uncirculated coin from the U.S. Mint facility in Philadelphia with a ‘P’ mint mark
- One proof coin from the U.S. Mint facility in San Francisco with a ‘S’ mint mark
The mint mark appears on a quarter’s obverse or heads side, to the right side of George Washington’s portrait and under the inscription IN GOD WE TRUST.
The quarters in the three-coin set are also available in a combination of more expensive U.S. Mint products that include all the year’s quarters, like the 2015 America the Beautiful Quarters Proof Set ($14.95) and the 2014 America the Beautiful Quarters Uncirculated Set ($12.95).
The three quarters are mounted on a durable plastic card that has a picturesque photo of Kentucky’s Cumberland Gap National Historical Park. The back of the card offers information about the park, the three coins and their designs, and a U.S. Mint Certificate of Authenticity.

The first released three-coin set in 2016 features quarters honoring Shawnee National Forest in Illinois. Upcoming 2016 sets will include coins commemorating 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.
