The America the Beautiful Quarters Program features designs depicting national parks and other national sites. Each year five new national site designs are depicted on the reverse (tails) of the America the Beautiful Quarters. The United States Mint will issue these quarters in the order in which the honored sites were established as national sites.
Each coin in the series features a common obverse (heads) of the 1932 portrait of George Washington by John Flanagan, which has been restored to bring out subtle details and the beauty of the original model. Over the decades, Mount Rushmore has grown in fame as a symbol of America - a symbol of freedom and a hope for people from all cultures and backgrounds. The sculpture, located in the scenic Black Hills of South Dakota, features the heads of former Presidents George Washington, Thomas Jefferson, Theodore Roosevelt and Abraham Lincoln. Sculpted by Gutzon Borglum and his son, Lincoln Borglum, the memorial features 60-foot heads of the former presidents carved in the smooth, fine-grained granite that erodes only 1 inch every 10,000 years.
The reverse design of the Mount Rushmore National Memorial quarter was inspired by photos of men who are adding the final details to Thomas Jefferson’s face. This design offers a unique and educational perspective on how Mount Rushmore was created and sculpted.
The America the Beautiful Quarters Three-Coin Set is also available through the United States Mint’s Online Subscription Program. Visit our Subscriptions page for more information.
