2011 America the Beautiful Quarters Proof Set

Much like the separate set for the 2011 Presidential Dollars, the US Mint offers a separate set containing just the quarters issued for the year. The 2011 America the Beautiful Quarters feature Gettysburg National Park, Olympic National Park, Glacier National Park, Vicksburg National Park, and Chickasaw National Recreation Area.

The separate quarters set is priced at $14.95. It might be useful if someone was only interesting in collecting the proof quarters each year and had absolutely no interest in the other coins issued. However, for most people, I think the full 2011 Proof Set, containing 14 coins and priced at $31.95 presents a much better option.

The US Mint changed the packaging style for the 2011 America the Beautiful Quarters Proof Set. This comes in the second year of the program, making last year’s set look decidedly different with a flag theme, compared to this year’s primarily black colored theme.

In a few weeks, the US Mint will also be issuing a separate quarters set containing coins struck in a composition of 90% silver.

Both of these products, I will be passing on. If the US Mint wants to make sets with the same coins repackaged, they should provide something else as an enticement. Perhaps an illustrated folder with history and information on each of the parks?
