The third National Park Quarters silver proof set! Includes the five America The Beautiful Quarters for 2012 in pristine proof condition.
Each set contains five silver coins which honor El Yunque National Forest in Puerto Rico, Chaco Culture National Historical Park in New Mexico, Acadia National Park in Maine, Hawaii Volcanoes National Park in Hawaii and Denali National Park and Preserve in Alaska.
Struck at the San Francisco Mint in the standard 90% silver composition, each set comes in its original mint box with certificate.
United States proof coins are extraordinarily brilliant, with sharp relief and a mirror-like background. Their frosted, sculpted foregrounds give them a special cameo effect. Proof blanks are specially treated, polished and cleaned to ensure high quality strikes. The blanks are then fed into presses fitted with hand-polished dies and struck at least twice to ensure sharp relief. The coins are then packaged in presentation cases to showcase and maintain their exceptional finish.
