2010 Quarters Proof Set

Today the US Mint released the 2010 America the Beautiful Quarters Proof Set. This set contains all five of the quarters that will be released this year, even though four of them still have not been released for circulation.


The five quarters for 2010 feature Hot Springs National Park, Yellowstone National Park, Yosemite National Park, Grand Canyon National Park, and Mount Hood National Forest. The set includes the proof versions of the coins, which are struck at the San Francisco Mint and carry the “S” mint mark.

The coins of the 2010 America the Beautiful Quarters Proof Set are housed in a single plastic lens and placed in an outer cardboard box, packaged with a certificate of authenticity.

The set is somewhat costly at $14.95. In the past, I have usually waited for the full annual set to be released to get the proof quarters for each year. The 2010 Proof Set is due for release in July and should be priced at $31.95. The set will include a total of 14 coins, including proof versions of the newly designed Lincoln Cent, the Jefferson Nickel, Roosevelt Dime, Kennedy Half Dollar, Native American Dollar, and the four Presidential Dollars.
