This newest America the Beautiful Quarters Three-Coin Set™ is the final of five issues for 2017 and the fortieth overall in the series which dates back to 2010.

George Rogers Clark quarters were released into circulation earlier this month — the same day that the U.S. Mint released rolls and bags of them in circulating quality. Quarters in this set are more unique in that are minted in higher quality, have lower mintages, and feature different finishes.

The three coins include an uncirculated quarter from the Denver Mint, an uncirculated quarter from the Philadelphia Mint and a proof quarter from the San Francisco Mint. Each bears the appropriate mintmark for its facility of production — a D, P or S.

Proof coins, like those shown topmost, tend to have greater appeal because they have frosted designs and mirror-like backgrounds. Two proof quarters and one uncirculated quarter are in each three-coin set. Designed by Frank Morris and sculpted by Michael Gaudioso, quarter reverses depict Clark leading his men through the flooded plains approaching Fort Sackville.

All three quarters are within a protective card with its front showing a scenic photo of the national historical park’s George Rogers Clark Memorial. The card’s back includes summary information about the park, a description of the quarters’ design, and a certificate of authenticity.

Ordering

These coins are struck and issued by the U.S. Mint as part of its America the Beautiful Quarters® Program. The series debuted in 2010 and features five new quarters annually each honoring a different site of national interest.

Some older three-coin sets remain available. U.S. Mint figures show past sets with sales ranging from about 12,500 to 25,000. This year’s earlier sets included quarters honoring Effigy Mounds National Monument in Iowa, Frederick Douglass National Historic Site in DC, Ozark National Scenic Riverways in Missouri, and Ellis Island (Statue of Liberty National Monument) in New Jersey.
