The America the Beautiful Quarters Program features five coins a year with reverse designs emblematic of selected sites found throughout the United States and its territories. A total of fifty-six new strikes will be created under the program which is scheduled to end in 2021.

This set included the first five quarters of the program, each struck to proof quality which results in a coin with enhanced detail and a mirror-like background.
