The United States Mint is set to release the latest 3-coin set in the America the Beautiful Quarter series next week. The set for the Tallgrass Prairie National Preserve will go on sale starting at Noon Eastern, 9:00 AM Pacific. It is priced at $11.50 and available directly from the Mint.
The set contains an Uncirculated example of the Tallgrass Prairie Quarter from the Philadelphia and Denver Mints as well as a Proof example from the San Francisco Mint. The coins are encapsulated in a placard which features an images of the site on the front and the Certificate of Authenticity on the back. It is the final 3-coin set for the America the Beautiful series to be released this year.
The preserve located in Kansas is the only site within the National Park Service dedicated to the rich natural history of the tallgrass prairie. It encompasses almost 11,000 acres and is located in the heart of the Flint Hills—the largest expanse of tallgrass prairie left in North America. Established in 1996, part of its mission is to interpret the region’s ranching legacy; a portion of the preserve is still grazed by cattle.
