The twentieth coin in the US Mint’s popular America the Beautiful quarters series, this 2013 Mount Rushmore National Memorial America the Beautiful three-coin set depicts the final touches being applied to the 60-foot edifice of Jefferson on Mount Rushmore.

The set contains two uncirculated Mount Rushmore National Monument 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 monuments – especially Mount Rushmore – 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 forest and a Certificate of Authenticity on the back.

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

Home to one of the most iconic images in American culture, Mount Rushmore National Park no doubt deserves a coin of its own. The memorial itself, depicting 60 foot sculptured heads of four of our most famous Presidents, Washington, Jefferson, Lincoln, and Theodore Roosevelt, attracts nearly three million visitors annually and stands as a testament to American heritage. After securing funding from Congress, the carving began in 1927 and was completed in 1941. Remarkably for the day, no workers died during the carving process, despite the extensive use of dynamite to carve the monument’s faces.

The other coins dated 2013 will feature: 

Perry’s Victory and International Peace Memorial (OH)

Great Basin National Park (NV)

Fort McHenry National Monument and Historic Shrine (MD)

White Mountain National Forest (NH)
