WASHINGTON – The United States Mint will accept orders for products with the America the Beautiful Quarters® Program coin honoring Ozark National Scenic Riverways in Missouri starting on June 5 at noon Eastern Time (ET).
The coin’s reverse (tails) design depicts Alley Mill, a steel roller mill built in 1894. This merchant mill was used to convert wheat into flour. Much of the original milling equipment is still in place, and visitors to the park can tour the mill. The obverse (heads) design features the 1932 portrait of George Washington by John Flanagan.
Product options and their prices are as follows:
|PRODUCT OPTION||MINT MARK||PRICE|
|17ARG||Two-Roll Set||P and D||$32.95|
|17ARJ||Three-Roll Set||P, D, and S||$46.95|
Coins in the rolls and bags are struck on the main production floors at the United States Mint facilities at Philadelphia, Denver, and San Francisco. The three-roll set contains coins from all three facilities. Unlike the “P” and “D” mint mark quarters, those with the “S” mint mark will not be released into circulation.
The special numismatic wrapping for the coin rolls displays the name “Ozark National Scenic Riverways”; the abbreviation “MO” for Missouri; “$10,” the face value of its contents; and “P,” “D,” or “S” for the mint of origin. The canvas bags have a tag with “Ozark National Scenic Riverways;” “MO;” and “P,” “D,” or “S.”
The Mint accepts orders via its online catalog and at 1-800-USA-MINT (872-6468). Hearing- and speech-impaired customers with TTY equipment may order by calling 1-888-321-MINT (6468). Information about shipping options is available online.
