Why order this (Idaho) 2019-W 25C Clad River of No Return Wilderness Quarter?
The United States Mint created a national coin hunt in 2019 by releasing the first ever quarters with the West Point Mint's "W" mint mark for circulation. All ten million of the quarters struck with the mint mark were released directly into circulation. Two million of each of the 2019 America the Beautiful Quarters were struck with the mint mark. One of those quarters was this River of No Return Wilderness piece, Idaho's entry in the collection. The coin's natural scenery sets it apart from other 2019 issues, which focus more on history.
Stunning River Rapids Design by Emily Damstra
The obverse bears a left-side portrait of President George Washington by John Flanagan. The image is common to all of the America the Beautiful Quarters. Rim inscriptions read, "UNITED STATES OF AMERICA" and "QUARTER DOLLAR." Additional obverse inscriptions include "LIBERTY" and "IN GOD WE TRUST."
Emily Damstra created the reverse design, which was sculpted by Renata Gordon. It features a man in a drift boat enjoying the rushing rapids of a river. All around him are trees and rock formations, which appear to rise all the more starkly thanks to the ground level perspective of the image. The inscription of the name of the national park at the top of this face, "RIVER OF NO RETURN WILDERNESS," is particularly long, so it extends into the top portion of the design. The name of the represented state, "IDAHO," is also inscribed on t the rim, as are the date, "2019," and "E PLURIBUS UNUM."
Uncirculated MS63 FR with West Point Star Label
Numismatic Guaranty Corporation (NGC) provided this coin's grading information on a label that bears a West Point Star. The grading company certified that the piece is in Mint State 63 condition, which means that it shows no traces of wear and has about an average strike. NGC also certified the coin First Releases, meaning that it was submitted to them within 30 days of its initial release from the mint.
