PLEASE NOTE: All coins on our website must be purchased in conjunction with a frame - no individual coin sales. Thanks!
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 historic sites on quarters featuring five new designs each year.
Released in 2019, the Frank Church River of No Return Wilderness Quarter features Idaho's rugged mountains, deep canyons, and wild whitewater rivers, including the Main Salmon River and Middle Fork of the Salmon River. “Frank Church” was attached to the site’s name in honor of late U.S. Senator Frank Church, who played a leading role in its preservation. The area is the largest single connected wilderness in the contiguous States and contains four national forests. This design depicts a piloted drift boat on the rushing river encompassed by the trees and rock formations in the wilderness.
This particular coin is a beautiful deep cameo proof quarter. The raised parts of a cameo proof coin appear frosted while the plain, flat areas have a mirror-like appearance. Similar to coin shown.
