America the Beautiful kicked off in 2010 with the release of the first five designs in the series. There are five new designs released each year by the United States Mint in this beautiful silver collection.
The release of each state or territory representative coin is based upon the order in which those monuments, parks, or forests were adopted as federally protected and recognized lands.
America the Beautiful coin designs for the reverse were chosen through a collaborative selection process between the US Mint, the chief executive of each jurisdiction, the Secretary of the Interior, and the Secretary of the Treasury.
The America the Beautiful quarters contain .999 pure silver with a total weight of 5 oz.
