US Mint America the Beautiful Acadia National Park 3-Coin Set

The thirteenth coin in the US Mint’s popular America the Beautiful quarters series, this 2012 Acadia National Park America the Beautiful three-coin set features the Bass Harbor Head Lighthouse and the park’s rugged coastline on the reverse of three quarters.

The set contains two uncirculated Acadia National Park quarters - one each from the Philadelphia US Mint and the Denver US Mint, as well as one proof-quality coin from the San Francisco US Mint. Proof-struck coins, commonly referred to as specimen-minted, are the most highly revered of all collectible coins. Coin aficionados devoutly pursue this elite class of coin because of its exceptional numismatic value and unmatched beauty.

An equally ideal gift item for fans of our national parks – especially Acadia National Park – and for beginning coin collectors by displaying the same item from three mints sampled by uncirculated and proof, each set mounts the coins on a durable plastic card with a description and image of the national historical park and a Certificate of Authenticity on the back.

In all, there will be up to 56 specially designed numismatic offerings between 2010 and 2021.

Located on Maine’s craggy coast, Acadia became part of the National Park system on July 8, 1916. Since then, visitors have enjoyed its granite peaks and historic carriage roads among the park’s spectacular scenery. The park includes parts of many islands, Cadillac Mountain, at 1,532 feet the highest point on the East Coast and the first place in the US to see sunrise, and Bass Harbor Head Lighthouse, built in 1858 to show the entrance to Bass Harbor and Blue Hill Bay.
