continuing to add to my collection


good day, even though i have been low on money, i had to continue to buy the America the Beautiful Quarters Sets from the US Mint. i only collect the proof sets, and will not have them slabbed and graded by NGC because the cost might be more than what the coin is worth. collecting is a good way to learn about places in America, Mount Rushmore is the only park i have been too on this years release. hopefully i can visit the others someday.


happy collecting everyone, enjoy life.




The United States Mint launched the America the Beautiful Quarters® Program in 2010. The 12-year initiative includes 56 quarters featuring reverse designs depicting some of our most cherished national parks and other national sites. The United States Mint will issue five new quarter designs per year, with one final design in 2021. The fourth year of the program, 2013, features the fourth group of five quarters in the series.


The 2013 reverse (tails side) of these coins honor the sites below with the following designs:


White Mountain National Forest in New Hampshire:

This design depicts Mt. Chocorua, the easternmost peak of the Sandwich Range, framed by birch trees. It is an iconic view of the White Mountain National Forest system lands. Inscriptions are WHITE MOUNTAIN, NEW HAMPSHIRE, 2013 and E PLURIBUS UNUM.


Perry's Victory and International Peace Memorial in Ohio:

This design features the statue of Master Commandant Oliver Hazard Perry with the Peace Memorial located in the distance. The memorial is one of the tallest of its kind in the U.S. Inscriptions are PERRY'S VICTORY, OHIO, 2013 and E PLURIBUS UNUM.


Great Basin National Park in Nevada:

This design features the beauty and unique qualities of a single Bristlecone Pine tree and shows the rocky glacial moraines where the trees grow. These trees grow at higher elevation in the park and are some of the world's oldest. The park contains numerous Bristlecone Pine groves with trees older than 4,000 years. Inscriptions are GREAT BASIN, NEVADA, 2013 and E PLURIBUS UNUM.


Fort McHenry National Monument and Historic Shrine in Maryland:

The design represents the site during the "Defenders Day" celebration, considered the centerpiece annual event held at Fort McHenry. The fireworks symbolize the "rocket's red glare," linking the fort to its historic past. Inscriptions are FORT McHENRY, MARYLAND, 2013 and E PLURIBUS UNUM.


Mount Rushmore National Memorial in South Dakota:

This design was inspired by photos of men who are adding the final details to Thomas Jefferson's face. Mount Rushmore was featured on three 1991 Mount Rushmore Golden Anniversary Commemorative Coins and on the 2006 South Dakota quarter issued under the 50 State Quarters® Program. This new design is distinctly different and offers a unique and educational perspective on how Mount Rushmore was created and sculpted. Inscriptions are MOUNT RUSHMORE, SOUTH DAKOTA, 2013 and E PLURIBUS UNUM.
