The United States Mint introduced the America the Beautiful series of silver coins in 2010. In all, the collection offers 56 different designs representing federally protected land and sites across the United States of America, from the 50 states to the five overseas territories of the nation and the federal district of Washington D.C.
In addition to offering 5 oz silver coins in BU and Burnished versions, the US Mint struck the ATB designs on circulation US quarters from the cupronickel circulation release and on the same circulation-sized blanks with 90% silver content. In fact, from 2010 to 2018, the US Mint Silver Proof ATB Quarter Sets featured 90% silver with 10% copper. In 2019, the US Mint switched to .999 pure silver in these sets for the final releases.
President George Washington is found on the obverse of 2016 US Mint Silver Proof America the Beautiful Quarter Sets. The effigy of President Washington featured on this side of the coin was created in 1932 by John Flanagan for the US Mint to grace the circulation quarter in honor of the 200th anniversary of President Washington’s birth.
The states of Illinois, Kentucky, West Virginia, North Dakota, and South Carolina are represented in the designs on the reverse of the coins in the 2016 US Mint Silver Proof ATB Quarter Sets. These images represent a National Forest, two National Historical Parks, a National Park, and a National Monument.

The holder and coins arrive in the original US Mint shipping sleeve. Please keep in mind that the coins remain in original condition and the packaging is in good condition overall.
