Since its humble beginning in 2010, the popular America the Beautiful (ATB) coin series has rapidly become a numismatic staple. This 12-year program was designed to celebrate the United States’ many national parks, reserves, and historical sites from each of the 50 states as well as the District of Columbia and five U.S. overseas territories: Puerto Rico, Guam, the U.S. Virgin Islands, American Samoa, and the Commonwealth of the Northern Mariana Islands.
ModernCoinMart is proud to offer the latest release in this series, which commemorates the Theodore Roosevelt National Park in North Dakota.
After seeing such success with the United States Quarter Program that was struck from 1999-2009, the U.S. Mint decided to begin the America the Beautiful Quarter. Since the series’ creation, the U.S. Mint has released five ATB quarters per year. This 2016 25¢ 5 oz. ATB coin is the fourth release this year and after demand for this series has continued to grow each year, it is expected to be one of the most popular releases.
Designed and engraved by two of the U.S. Mint's most talented artists, Joel Iskowitz and Phoebe Hemphill, this quarter's reverse will feature a young Theodore Roosevelt surveying the beautiful scenery of the Little Mississippi River. Roosevelt dedicated much of his life to conservation efforts and is responsible for the establishment of 5 national parks, 150 national forests, and 4 national game preserves. Garnering interest from coin collectors both new and experienced, this ATB release captures the essence of exploration and environmental responsibility in .999 fine silver.
Considered to have some of the most intriguing and attractive designs of any modern coin in a series, the ATB Quarter Program is collected by collectors and stackers alike.
