2014 US Mint America the Beautiful Everglades National Park 3-Coin Set

2014 US Mint America the Beautiful Everglades National Park 3-Coin Set Part of the US Mint’s popular America the Beautiful quarters series, the 2014 Everglades National Park America the Beautiful three-coin set depicts an anhinga bird with open wings, perched on a willow tree, with a roseate spoonbill hunting for its next meal in the mid-ground.

The set contains two uncirculated Everglades 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.

This set is an equally ideal gift for fans of America’s national parks – especially Everglades 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 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.

As the largest subtropical wilderness in the United States, Everglades National Park protects an unequalled setting that provides vital habitation for several exceptional, yet endangered species like the manatee, American crocodile, and the shy Florida panther. The park is an international treasure as well, selected as a world heritage site, international biosphere reserve, and wetland of international importance. More than one million visitors come every year to see the park’s natural beauty, hike across its trails, and tour its many wonders. The National Park Service first established the Everglades as a national site on May 30, 1934.

The other coins dated 2014 will feature:

• Shenandoah National Park in Virginia
• Great Smoky Mountains National Park in Tennessee
• Great Sand Dunes National Park in Colorado
• Arches National Park in Utah
