The United States Mint will accept orders for the 2020 America the Beautiful Quarters Three-Coin Set honoring Salt River Bay National Historical Park and Ecological Preserve in the U.S. Virgin Islands beginning on July 10 at noon EDT.
Priced at $11.50 USD, this three-coin set (product code 20AF) includes one uncirculated quarter from the Philadelphia Mint, one uncirculated quarter from the Denver Mint, and one Proof quarter from the San Francisco Mint. All coins feature a reverse design depicting a Red Mangrove tree in an early stage of its life cycle as it evolves from a very small plant to an adult tree. The design brings awareness to the Park’s endangered mangrove forest and the unique and delicate nature of how the species reproduces in salt water. Inscriptions are “SALT RIVER BAY,” “U.S. VIRGIN ISLANDS,” “2020,” and “E PLURIBUS UNUM.”
The obverses of the coins depict the 1932 portrait of George Washington by John Flanagan, which has been restored to bring out subtle details and the beauty of the original model. Inscriptions are “UNITED STATES OF AMERICA,” “LIBERTY,” “IN GOD WE TRUST,” and “QUARTER DOLLAR.”
All coins in the set are held in a durable plastic card with an image of Salt River Bay National Historical Park and Ecological Preserve. The Certificate of Authenticity is printed on the back of the card.
The America the Beautiful Quarters Three-Coin Sets are also available for purchase through the Mint’s Product Enrollment Program. Visit catalog.usmint.gov/shop/enrollments for details.
Due to the impact of COVID-19, the Mint’s sales centers are closed until further notice.
