The 2019 America the Beautiful Quarters Uncirculated Coin Set™ contains 10 uncirculated America the Beautiful Quarters–five minted at the Philadelphia Mint and five at the Denver Mint. The set contains coins honoring five of our Nation’s national parks and sites. The United States Mint issues these quarters in the order in which the honored sites were first established as national sites.
Each coin in the series features a common obverse (heads) with the 1932 portrait of George Washington by John Flanagan, restored to bring out subtle details and the beauty of the original model. Each year, five new national site designs are depicted on the reverse (tails) of the quarters. The 2019 coins honor the sites below with the following designs:
Lowell National Historical Park: This design depicts a mill girl working at a power loom with its prominent circular bobbin battery. A view of Lowell, including the Boott Mill clock tower, is seen through the window. Inscriptions are "LOWELL," "MASSACHUSETTS," "2019," and "E PLURIBUS UNUM."
American Memorial Park: This design depicts a young woman in traditional dress at the front of the Flag Circle and Court of Honor. She is resting her hand on the plaque whose text honors the sacrifice of those who died in the Marianas Campaign of World War II. Inscriptions are "AMERICAN MEMORIAL PARK," "N. MARIANA ISLANDS," "2019," and "E PLURIBUS UNUM."
War in the Pacific National Historical Park: This design depicts American Armed Forces coming ashore at Asan Bay, strengthening the number of troops on the island in the fight for Guam and its eventual liberation. Inscriptions are "WAR IN THE PACIFIC," "GUAM," "2019," and "E PLURIBUS UNUM."
San Antonio Missions National Historical Park: This design depicts elements of the Spanish Colonial Real coin to pay tribute to the missions. Within the quadrants are symbols of the missions: wheat symbolizes farming, the arches and bell symbolize community, a lion represents Spanish cultural heritage, and a symbol of the San Antonio River represents irrigation methods and life-sustaining resources. Inscriptions are "SAN ANTONIO MISSIONS," "TEXAS," "2019," and "E PLURIBUS UNUM."
