On Tuesday, February 12, 2013, the U.S. Mint released the White Mountain National Forest Quarters Three-Coin Set.
This numismatic product is the first of its kind for 2013 and the sixteenth overall in the series of America the Beautiful Quarters Three-Coin Sets. These sets have appeared alongside America the Beautiful Quarters ever since they were introduced in 2010.
This year’s sets keep the same price, $9.95, and attractive display card as those from 2012. Three-coin sets in 2010 – 2011 featured U.S. Mint branded black and white display cards instead of a photo of the site honored, and prices of $14.95. All sets that have ever been released remain available and may be purchased on the United States Mint website at www.usmint.gov/catalog.
Within the White Mountain Quarters Three-Coin Set are three numismatic or collector coins that depict the national forest located, for the most part, in the state of New Hampshire. One of the America the Beautiful Quarters is in proof quality from the San Francisco Mint. The other two America the Beautiful Quarters are in uncirculated quality with one from Philadelphia Mint and one from the Denver Mint.

When subscribed, the U.S. Mint automatically sends out new three-coin sets as they become available. Credit cards are charged at the time they are shipped.
