2010 America the Beautiful Quarters Silver Proof Set

Today, the US Mint releases the 90% silver proof versions of the 2010 America the Beautiful Quarters. These coins are released in a five coin set, which closely follows the release of the five coin proof set featuring the regular clad composition versions of the coins.

2010 Quarters Silver Proof Set

From 1992, the US Mint has struck dimes, quarters, and half dollars in the traditional silver composition for sale to collectors in specially issued sets. This has included an annual Silver Proof Set since 1992 and separate Quarters Silver Proof Sets since 2004.

The 2010 America the Beautiful Quarters Silver Proof Set will contain the Hot Springs National Park Quarter, Yellowstone National Park Quarter, Yosemite National Park Quarter, Grand Canyon National Park Quarter, and Mount Hood National Forest Quarter. Each coin will be struck in proof format at the San Francisco Mint and carry the “S” mint mark. The coins will have a composition of 90% silver and 10% copper.

The five coins are packaged in a protective plastic lens and illustrated cardboard box. The sets aren’t cheap, priced at $32.95 each. This is a $3 price increase over the price of last year’s silver proof quarters set, which contained six coins.
