On November 19th, the U.S. Mint announced the upcoming release of the last America the Beautiful Quarters three-coin set of 2019. The set will be available for purchase on November 26th of the current year. As one of the premier Boston coin shops, the team at Boston Bullion is excited to bring you the details of this last collection.
The three coin set will feature two uncirculated coins minted at the Philadelphia Mint and the Denver Mint. The third coin will be a proof from the San Francisco Mint. Each quarter will pay homage to the Frank Church River of No Return Wilderness.
A piloted drift boat on rushing river waters will be depicted on one side, while the reverse is a portrait of George Washington. The three coins will be mounted on a card with an image of the Frank Church River of No Return Wilderness which will contain a printed Certificate of Authenticity on the backside.
Frank Church – River of No Return Wilderness Area
This protected area in Idaho is named in honor of U.S. Senator Frank Church. With over 2 million acres, the Frank Church Wilderness Area is one of the larges federally managed, and protected, areas within the United States. Second only to the Adirondacks in New York.
Through steep mountains one can find the Salmon River. This river has become a popular tourist destination for adventure seekers each year. With it’s swift current and class 3 and 4 rapids, the Salmon River entices those involved with whitewater rafting. However, the river earned it’s nickname, “River of No Return” for valid reason. In early days, boats would travel down the river, but would be unable to return upstream due to the heavy and frequent rapids.
