Why purchase this 8-Coin U.S. Limited Edition 2019-S Silver Proof Set?
Every year, the US Mint's Limited Edition Silver Proof Set provides collectors with the opportunity to own pieces with the designs of some of the country's circulated coinage in fine silver. This edition is of particular interest to collectors who have an interest in history, as four of its five America the Beautiful Quarters have designs of historical significance. In addition to the five quarters, the set also includes a Silver Eagle, a half dollar, and a dime. Each piece was struck from .999 fine silver at the San Francisco Mint and bears that mint's "S" mint mark. The Silver Eagle weighs 1 oz, the half dollar 12.685 g, the quarters 6.343 g each, and the dime 2.537 g. This set comes in its original packaging from the US Mint.
Stunning 2019 America the Beautiful Quarters Designs
The highlights of this set are the one year only America the Beautiful designs. All five of them share an obverse design that is common to all ATB quarters, John Flanagan's portrait of President George Washington. The coins that represent parks in the Northern Mariana Islands (American Memorial Park) and Guam (War in the Pacific National Historical Park) honor many of the men who fought in World War II's Pacific Theater. Massachusetts's entry in the collection (Lowell National Historical Park) features one of the famous mill girls, who advocated for abolition and workers' rights. The coin for Texas (San Antonio Missions National Historical Park) bears a design that pays homage to the missions that served as the city's foundation while also giving a nod to the Colonial Spanish Real. Finally, the coin for Idaho (Frank Church River of No Return Wilderness) shows a man in a boat enjoying America's great outdoors.
Both faces of the other three coins bear their traditional designs. The Walking Liberty design of Adolph Weinman serves as the obverse of the Silver Eagle. It is joined by an adaptation of the Great Seal of the United States by John Mercanti on the reverse. The Kennedy half dollar's obverse has a portrait of President John F. Kennedy by Gilroy Roberts on the obverse and Frank Gasparro's modified presidential seal on the reverse. John Sinnock designed both faces of the Roosevelt dime, which bears a left-side effigy of President Franklin Roosevelt on the obverse and a torch flanked by two branches on the reverse.
