Idaho’s America the Beautiful Quarter Pays Tribute to Beloved Wilderness Area
The America the Beautiful series has proven extremely popular since it began back in 2010. For those who have been collecting from the start, each release has provided a new and exciting way to discover and appreciate all that America has to offer. For some, that means searching through pocket change for each new release. This may be a fun piece of nostalgia, but it also means acquiring a coin that’s nicked up and otherwise damaged through circulation. Now you don’t have to sift through the candy wrappers and paper clips in your pocket to find this year’s quarters – we’ve done all the work for you!
We’ve managed to rescue a small hoard of the final ATB coins of 2019, the 2019 Idaho Frank Church—River of No Return Wilderness Area Quarter meant for circulation and had them certified and graded by the Numismatic Guaranty Corporation (NGC), one of the world’s leading third-party grading services! And here’s the good news: Each coin available in this offer has been graded by NGC in stunning Gem Uncirculated Mint State-65 (MS65) condition! Plus, NGC has certified these quarters to be First Releases (FR) coins, a designation that means they were received by NGC or an NGC-approved depository within the first 30 days of its release. Each will also come encapsulated in an acrylic holder with an exclusive West Point Gold Star label.
Why the special Gold Star label? It’s because these coins were struck at the West Point Mint and feature the famous “W” mint mark! The U.S. Mint released these special “W” quarters only into the general circulation of banks across the United States, so tracking down coins that can achieve high Mint State grades will be quite difficult. Just think about how many of these coins will be unceremoniously dumped into change jars and piggy banks without so much as a glance to see if they have the mint mark – it’s a true circulating rarity from the U.S. Mint that you’ll want to add to your personal collection!
Idaho’s Frank Church—River of No Return Wilderness Area is a perfect example of a coin that presents collectors with a scene of America’s history that would likely be overlooked otherwise. The coin shows a person in a drift boat on the rushing river with trees and rock formations around it. While jetboats can navigate upstream today, in the 1800s, boats could navigate down the river but could not get back up through the fast water and numerous rapids.
This Idaho Frank Church—River of No Return Quarter is one of five America the Beautiful Coins that will be issued in 2019 meaning it will be available only for so long. The grade and luster of coins like these will only decline further while they remain in general circulation. Add one to your collection now before it’s too late!
