2016 US Mint America the Beautiful Shawnee National Forest 3-Coin Set

The America the Beautiful Quarters® program began 2016 by offering its 31st installment in the series to commemorate Illinois’ sole national forest – Shawnee National Forest. In this elegantly displayed three-coin set, you receive uncirculated Shawnee National Forest quarters from three separate U.S. Mints - a must-have for any collector or lover of the national forest.

Spanning 280,000 acres, Shawnee National Park hosts a rare configuration of five diverse ecosystems all cradled between the Ohio and Mississippi rivers. Temperate winters make the forest a pleasure to visit, even during those cold months. But spring and fall burst with blossoms and expanses of painted leaves. Just about every outdoor enthusiast can find breathtaking views and fun actives to quench their thirst for nature. Rolling hills, forests, trails, lakes, and streams offer up hiking, biking, camping, boating, fishing, and swimming. Learning about the forest’s natural elements and Native American cultural history is easy and fun with the park’s many educational opportunities.

The obverse of all three quarters features the 1932 portrait of George Washington by John Flanagan. Each reverse depicts Camel Rock with a red-tailed hawk soaring high above. The three-coin set includes one uncirculated quarter from the Denver Mint, one from the Philadelphia Mint, and one proof quarter from the San Francisco Mint.

he quarters are secured in a sleek plastic card featuring a beautiful photo of Camel Rock, which is depicted on the quarter. A Certificate of Authenticity can be found on the back of the card.
