2017 S United States Mint America the Beautiful Quarters Silver Proof Set US Mint Packaged

  • $ 44.95

The 2017 United States Mint America the Beautiful Quarters Silver Proof Set features all five 2017 America the Beautiful Quarters minted in 90 percent silver, also known as “coin silver.” The silver in these coins can be seen by viewing the edge of the coin in the lens.

United States Mint proof coins feature sharp relief and a mirror–like background. Their sculpted, frosted foregrounds give them an exceptional cameo effect. Proof blanks are specially treated, polished, and cleaned to ensure high–quality strikes. The blanks are then fed into presses fitted with specially polished dies and struck at least twice to ensure sharp relief. The coins are then packaged in a protective lens to showcase and maintain their exceptional finish.

Each coin in the America the Beautiful series features a common obverse (heads) with the 1932 portrait of George Washington by John Flanagan, restored to bring out subtle details and the beauty of the original model.

The 2017 reverse (tails) of these coins honor the sites below with the following designs:

Effigy Mounds National Monument in Iowa This design depicts an aerial view of mounds in the Marching Bear Group.

Frederick Douglass National Historic Site in District of Columbia This design depicts Frederick Douglass seated at a writing desk with his home in Washington, DC, in the background.

Ozark National Scenic Riverways in Missouri This design depicts Alley Mill, a steel roller mill built in 1894. This merchant mill was used to convert wheat into flour. Much of the original milling equipment is still in place.
