Today, Oct. 3, the United States Mint released a three-coin set of 2016 Theodore Roosevelt quarters for $9.95. The coins commemorate the national park in North Dakota and feature an emblematic design of the site.
This latest America the Beautiful Quarters Three-Coin Set™ is the fourth issued this year and the 34th overall in the series.
Theodore Roosevelt National Park quarters launched into circulation in late August near the time the U.S. Mint began selling rolls and bags of them in circulating quality. These are regular coins, although those in Mint rolls and bags have never circulated. Quarters within this new set, however, are specially produced in a higher quality and with different finishes, because they are intended for coin collectors. The three-coin 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
Each quarter’s mint mark is on the obverse or heads side, under the inscription IN GOD WE TRUST, which is on the right side of George Washington’s portrait.
The Mint mounted the three quarters on a plastic card that has a scenic photo of Theodore Roosevelt National Park. The card’s back provides some brief information about the park, the quarters designs, and a Certificate of Authenticity.

The first three sets this year feature quarters honoring Shawnee National Forest in Illinois, Cumberland Gap National Historical Park of Kentucky, and Harpers Ferry National Historical Park of West Virginia. To-date, the U.S. Mint has sold 13,183 Shawnee sets; 12,406 of the Cumberland Gap sets, and 10,939 of the Harpers Ferry sets.
The year’s last set includes coins commemorating Fort Moultrie (Fort Sumter National Monument) in South Carolina. It should to launch in November.
