2017 America the Beautiful Ozark National Scenic Riverways Quarters 3 Roll Set
The Pristine Beauty of the Ozark Riverways, Captured Forever!
Make your way to the southern part of Missouri and you'll find yourself right in the middle of the rolling mountains, spacious plateaus and dense forests collectively known as the Ozarks. And carving its way through this picturesque beauty are the pristine waters of the Current and Jack Fork Rivers -- of which 134 miles make up the Ozark National Scenic Riverways. Preserved since 1964 as the first federally protected river system, these waters flow free and wild, fed by springs and unencumbered by modern trappings. The Ozark Riverways are an outdoor playground, with plenty of floating, fishing and swimming in its rivers, hiking in its forests and exploring its natural wonders and over 100 structures.
The Center of Activity, Captured in Time!
Notice that we said that the Ozark Riverways weren't interrupted by the dams and systems of today. However, back in the early 20th century, communities found ingenious ways to harness the power of the water and springs without radically transforming the landscape. For a perfect example, you don't need to go any further than Alley Spring, home to the Alley Mill. Built in 1894, the mill ingeniously used submerged turbines (instead of a water wheel) to power the grinding of grain. The result helped turned the area into a community center and later a tourist destination. Today, the Alley Mill is a symbol of a simpler past, where the beauty of nature and human progress (for the most part) peacefully coexisted.
Natural Wonders, Immortalized by Two Different Mints!
With an amazing amount of National Park Service sites in Missouri, you could see how difficult it could be to choose just one for the popular America the Beautiful Quarters® Program. However, looking at the evocative scene of the Alley Mill designed by Ron Sanders and sculpted by Renata Gordon, there's no doubt that this 2017 Ozark National Scenic Riverways Quarter is a winner! Now, you can get three uncirculated 40-quarter rolls of this spectacular coin, one each from the United States Mints at Philadelphia, Denver and San Francisco. Each roll comes in its original U.S. Mint packaging, each quarter proudly bearing a "P," "D" or "S" mintmark underneath John Flanagan's familiar portrait of George Washington. Whether you're a native Missourian with treasured memories of the Ozarks, a devoted collector of America the Beautiful quarters or a fan of artistic landscapes, this release is a true event. Don't miss out -- add them to your cart now before they float away for good!
