Featured in the set will be the sixth through the tenth releases of the program, all struck to proof quality at the US Mint’s facility in San Francisco. A proof quality finish is described by the US Mint as "extraordinarily brilliant, with sharp relief and a mirror-like background."

This series of annual coin sets should be continued through the end of the program which is scheduled to terminate in 2021 when the final of fifty-six individual coins of the program is issued.

Designer & Sculptor / Engraver

A portrait of George Washington designed by John Flanagan is featured on the obverse of each America the Beautiful Quarter. The image of the first President of the United States was initially used on the 1932 circulating quarter dollar.

Reverse designs will showcase an image emblematic of the selected site of national interest. Design candidates for each coin were reviewed by the Commission of Fine Arts and the Citizen’s Coinage Advisory Committee in early 2010, but no official selection has been announced by the Treasury Secretary through the US Mint.
