2010 / America the Beautiful Quarter Deep Cameo Silver Proof / Yellowstone National Park
America the Beautiful Quarters capture the breathtaking beauty of America’s natural landscapes that have inspired countless poets, adventurers, and artists. The U.S. is honoring our Nation's national parks and sites on quarters featuring five new designs each year. Released in 2010, the Yellowstone National Park Quarter is the second overall in the America the Beautiful Quarters® Program. First established as a national site on March 1, 1872, Yellowstone National Park in the state of Wyoming is home to a large variety of wildlife, including grizzly bears, wolves, bison and elk. Preserved within the park are Old Faithful and a collection of the world’s most extraordinary geysers.
This particular coin is a beautiful deep cameo proof quarter made of 90% silver. The raised parts of a cameo proof coin appear frosted while the plain, flat areas have a mirror-like appearance. It comes encased in an air-tight capsule to protect the coin's integrity. Purchase this coin separately or add this 2010 quarter to one of our CoinArt selections.
