The Program

In 2010, the United States Mint began to issue the quarters in this program.  By the time the program ends in 2021, there will be a total of 56 quarter-dollar coins released.  Each design on their flip sides will focus on a different national site in each state, territory, and the District of Columbia.

The Obverse

Although each back (reverse) will be different, each front (obverse) will be the same.  Each coin in the series features the portrait of George Washington by John Flanagan, used on the quarter-dollar coin since 1932.  The image has been refined to bring out the details and the beauty of the original model.

The standard inscriptions are included:  "United States of America," "Liberty," "In God We Trust," and "Quarter Dollar."

The Reverses

The map above shows where all 56 of the national sites chosen for the America the Beautiful quarters are located.  The small dots are not yet active links, but the other dots and diamonds link to pages that describe the designs for those sites.
