2019 / America the Beautiful Quarter Gem Proof / San Antonio Missions
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 San Antonio Missions National Historical Park Quarter features the same elements of the Spanish Colonial Real coin to pay tribute to the Spanish missions in North America. Within the quadrants are symbols of the missions: wheat symbolizes farming; the arches and bell symbolize community; a lion represents Spanish cultural heritage; and a symbol of the San Antonio River represents irrigation methods and life-sustaining resources.
This particular coin is a beautiful deep cameo gem proof quarter. 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 2019 quarter to one of our CoinArt selections. PLEASE NOTE: If purchasing separately, please let us know in the Special Instructions if you don't wish us to insert coin in capsule.
