2012 America the Beautiful Quarters Proof Set

The 2012 America the Beautiful Quarter Proof Set is the third year of a proof set to contain just the strikes of the America the Beautiful Quarters® Program. The program itself only dates back three years as it debuted in 2010, however, previous Quarters Proof Sets were issued containing strikes of other quarters programs.

Coins of the 2012 America the Beautiful Quarters Proof Set mark the eleventh through the fifteenth of the America the Beautiful program. Five new quarter dollars are issued annually as part of the series.

Each coin in the set is struck to proof quality at the US Mint's facility in San Francisco. The United States Mint describes proof coins with the following paragraph:

"United States Mint proof coins feature sharp relief and a mirror-like background. Their frosted, sculpted foregrounds give them a special cameo effect. Proof blanks are specially treated, polished and cleaned to ensure high quality strikes. The blanks are then fed into presses fitted with specially polished dies and struck at least twice to ensure sharp relief. The coins are then packaged in a protective lens to showcase and maintain their exceptional finish."

The protective lens of the set allows the holder to view both the obverse and reverse of each strike.

The following clad quarter-dollars are included in the set:

Coins in the program are released in the order in which the honored sites came under the direct control of the federal government.
