Why order this 2019-W 25C Clad Idaho River of No Return Wilderness Quarter?
The America the Beautiful Series got even more interesting in 2019 when the US Mint released the first ever circulated quarters to bear the "W" mint mark of the West Point Mint. Ten million coins were struck with the mark, two million of each of the 2019 ATB Quarters. None of the coins were reserved for collectors. Instead, the US Mint put collectors on a coin hunt by releasing them all into circulation. This piece is Idaho's edition in the ATB series. Perfect for outdoors-men, it honors River of No Return Wilderness.
Featuring a Breathtaking River Design by Emily Damstra
The obverse design is shared with all other issues in the series. At the center is John Flanagan's portrait of President George Washington, which has featured on the nation's quarters for nearly a century. The name of the coin's country, "UNITED STATES OF AMERICA," is inscribed on the top half of the rim, while its face value, "QUARTER DOLLAR," is on the bottom. Other obverse inscriptions read, "LIBERTY" and "IN GOD WE TRUST."
Emily Damstra designed and Renata Gordon sculpted the reverse design. A man enjoys some of America's great outdoors in his boat on a rushing river. The image is shown from ground level looking upward both at the boat and at the trees and rock formations, which rise in the background. Unlike on other ATB quarters, the rim inscription at the top of the reverse continues into the design itself, reading, "RIVER OF NO RETURN WILDERNESS." Inscriptions on the bottom half of the rim read, from left to right, "IDAHO," "2019," and "E PLURIBUS UNUM."
