2013-S Great Basin Quarter Singles – Uncirculated Condition
Though the San Francisco Mint Great Basin Quarters were struck as Business Strikes, none of these quarters were issued for circulation, insuring their desirability for years to come.
Great Basin National Park, first established in 1822, is located in Nevada and is home to some of the nation’s oldest trees – Bristlecone Pine Trees. The Great Basin extends from California’s Sierra Nevada to Utah’s Wasatch Range and from Southern Oregon to southern Nevada. It was named so by explorer John C. Fremont in the mid-1800’s. The Nevada portion of the Great Basin National Park includes the Lehman Caves, Wheeler Peak, and a variety of historic resources, structures, and sites dating back as early as pre-historic times.
The reverse of the Great Basin quarter features a beautiful image of a single Bristlecone Pine tree (Pinus longaeva). These trees are not only long-living but also grow in difficult conditions of cold temperatures, high winds, and short growing seasons. The reverse of the quarter also includes the inscription “Great Basin, Nevada,” “2013,” and “E Pluribus Unum.”
All of our S Mint Great Basin Quarter Singles are shipped in 2X2 coin flips and are taken from original U.S. Mint bags.
