Why order this Limited Edition Silver Proof Set 2018-S Silver Block Island Proof America the Beautiful Quarter?
This Block Island Quarter was struck as part of the San Francisco Mint's Limited Edition Silver Proof Set. Just 50,000 sets were issued. Like the other coins in the set, it bears that mint's "S" mint mark. It was struck there from 6.25 g of .900 fine silver. The coin would make a beautiful addition to the collections not of collectors from Rhode Island, the state that the quarter represents in the series, but also of anyone who loves the seashore.
Tranquil Night Heron Design by Chris Costello
John Flanagan's portrait of President George Washington serves as the obverse design. The left-side effigy has been a mainstay of quarters since its debut in 1932. The coin's face value, "QUARTER DOLLAR," and the national motto, "IN GOD WE TRUST," are among the inscriptions that join it on this face.
Designed by Chris Costello and sculpted by Phebe Hemphill, the reverse design gives the holder the opportunity to take himself away to the peaceful shores of New England. Costello depicts a black-crowned night heron flying over the beach at Cow Cove heading toward Sandy Point. In the distance, the North lighthouse stands ready to help ships as they approach land. "BLOCK ISLAND" is inscribed at the top of the rim frame, while "RHODE ISLAND" is included in the lower left.
Nearly Perfect PF69 UC ER
This coin received a Proof 69 grade from Numismatic Guaranty Corporation (NGC), which means that it is almost perfect as seen by the naked eye. It was also certified Early Releases due to the fact that NGC received it within 30 days of its initial mint release and Ultra Cameo for its sharp contrasts between frosted devices and mirrored fields.
