The Fifth National Park Quarters proof set! Includes the five America The Beautiful Quarters for 2014 in pristine proof condition.
Each set contains five coins which honor Great Smoky Mountains National Park in Tennessee, Shenandoah National Park in Virginia, Arches National Park in Utah, Great Sand Dunes National Park in Colorado, and Everglades National Park in Florida.
These 2014 ATB Quarter Proof Sets are struck at the San Francisco Mint in a copper-nickel clad composition. Each set includes the original U.S. Mint box and certificate of authenticity.
United States proof coins are extraordinarily brilliant, with sharp relief and a mirror-like background.
Their frosted, sculpted foregrounds give them a special cameo effect. Proof blanks are specially treated, polished and cleaned to ensure high quality strikes. The blanks are then fed into presses fitted with hand-polished dies and struck at least twice to ensure sharp relief. The coins are then packaged in presentation cases to showcase and maintain their exceptional finish.
