The US Mint announces that the 2011 United States Mint America the Beautiful Quarters Silver Proof Set™ are available April 1.
[WASHINGTON] — Collectors may begin ordering the 2011 United States Mint America the Beautiful Quarters Silver Proof Set on April 1 at noon Eastern Time (ET). The set, priced at $41.95, contains proof quality versions of the quarter-dollar coins honoring Gettysburg National Military Park (Pennsylvania), Glacier National Park (Montana), Olympic National Park (Washington), Vicksburg National Military Park (Mississippi), and Chickasaw National Recreation Area (Oklahoma). Each quarter is struck in lustrous 90 percent silver.
The set was originally scheduled for release on March 29 but was delayed because of re-pricing resulting from the rising market price of silver.
The proof coins in these sets are minted at the United States Mint at San Francisco using specially prepared, highly polished dies and feature frosted cameo images on mirror-like backgrounds. The coins — each bearing the “S” mint mark for San Francisco — are sealed in a protective lens and accompanied by a Certificate of Authenticity.
