Collect or share the three-coin set of Maine’s 2012 Acadia National Park Quarters – one each from the Denver, San Francisco, and Philadelphia Mints.
As part of the America the Beautiful Quarters® Program, the U.S. Mint introduced the America the Beautiful Quarters Three-Coin Sets to honor the Nation’s national parks and other national sites. The Acadia National Park quarter is the third to be released in 2012 and the 13th overall in the America the Beautiful Quarters® Program.
Awed by its beauty and diversity, early 20th-century visionaries donated the land on the rugged coast of Maine that became Acadia National Park, the first national park east of the Mississippi River. The reverse (tails) design of the coin depicts a view of the Bass Harbor Head Lighthouse and Acadia’s rough coastline. The design captures many representative elements of the Acadia: the coastline, the lighthouse, the pine trees and the ocean.
Each three-coin set features an uncirculated quarter from the U.S. Mint at Philadelphia, an uncirculated quarter from the U.S. Mint at Denver and a proof quarter from the U.S. Mint at San Francisco with images specific to each national site. The coins are held in a durable plastic card that features a picturesque image and a brief description of the site and the coin, as well as a Certificate of Authenticity on the back of the card.
The America the Beautiful Quarters Three-Coin Set™ is also available through the U.S. Mint Product Enrollment Program. Visit our Product Enrollments page for more information.
