Bags and rolls of the 2013 Great Basin National Park Quarters are now available directly from the United States Mint.
These numismatic products went on sale beginning at Noon (Eastern) Monday, June 10, 2013, the same day the strikes were released into circulation.
Great Basin National Park Quarters are the third America the Beautiful Quarter issued in 2013 and eighteenth overall in the series. Shown on their reverse is a design emblematic of Great Basin National Park located in the state of Nevada.
The newly released bags and rolls feature circulation quality quarters struck in Philadelphia, Denver or San Francisco. P & D quarters are also released into general circulation. San Francisco produced quarters, however, are minted solely for coin collectors.
Great Basin National Park Quarter Designs
A portrait of George Washington graces the obverse of all America the Beautiful coinage. This image was originally designed for the 1932 circulating quarter dollar by John Flanagan. It has continued to appear on quarters since that initial release with the design digitally enhanced for America the Beautiful Quarters. Inscriptions surrounding the portrait include UNITED STATES OF AMERICA, LIBERTY, IN GOD WE TRUST and QUARTER DOLLAR.
Coins of the America the Beautiful series feature reverse designs emblematic of sites of national interest from around the United States and its territories. Found on the reverse of this coin is a single Bristlecone Pine tree with the rocky glacial moraines of the national park offered around it.
Reverse inscriptions include GREAT BASIN, NEVADA, 2013, and E PLURIBUS UNUM. The design was completed by United States Mint Artistic Infusion Program Associate Designer Ronald D. Sanders and executed by United States Mint Sculptor-Engraver Renata Gordon.

About America the Beautiful Quarters
The U.S. Mint’s America the Beautiful Quarters Program debuted in 2010. This series is scheduled to feature five new releases annually until 2021 when the last of fifty-six new quarter-dollars have been issued.
Preceding the Great Basin quarter this year were coins honoring White Mountain National Forest of New Hampshire and Perry’s Victory and International Peace Memorial of Ohio. Two coins scheduled to appear later this year in the series will honor Fort McHenry National Monument and Historic Shrine in Maryland and Mount Rushmore National Monument in South Dakota. Those two releases are scheduled for August and November, respectively.
