This set features all five of the 2014 America the Beautiful Quarters® struck in silver in proof condition, protectively encased in a clear plastic lens and newly designed packaging.
Each coin is struck in 90 percent silver, also known as "coin silver." United States Mint proof coins feature sharp relief and a mirror-like background. Their frosted, sculpted foregrounds give them a special cameo effect. The 2014 edition of the United States Mint America the Beautiful Quarters Silver Proof Set features the fourth annual release of five quarters in the America the Beautiful Quarters Program. Each coin in this series features a common obverse (heads side) with the 1932 portrait of George Washington by John Flanagan, restored to bring out subtle details and the beauty of the original model. Inscriptions are UNITED STATES OF AMERICA, LIBERTY, IN GOD WE TRUST and QUARTER DOLLAR.
The 2014 reverse (tails side) of these coins honor the sites below with the following designs:
** Great Smoky Mountains National Park in Tennessee
** Shenandoah National Park in Virginia
** Arches National Park in Utah
** Great Sand Dunes National Park in Colorado
