Today, April 23, 2015, the United States Mint has started accepting orders for the America the Beautiful Quarters Three Coin Set featuring the Kisatchie National Forest Quarter.
The Kisatchie Quarter was first released into general circulation by the Federal Reserve Banks on April 13, 2015. The US Mint began sales of bags and rolls of circulating quality examples of the coin on April 20. The official launch ceremony for the coin was held yesterday, April 22, with a public coin exchange also held.
The reverse design of the Kisatchie National Forest Quarter features a depiction of a wild turkey in flight over blue stem grass with long leaf pine in the background. This was designed by Susan Gamble and engraved by Joseph Menna.
The three coin set includes one uncirculated example of the quarter from the Philadelphia Mint, one uncirculated example from the Denver Mint, and one proof example from the San Francisco Mint. The three coins are mounted on a plastic card containing an illustration of a wild turkey within a similar landscape to the quarter design. The back of the card contains issuance information about the coin.
The price for each set is $9.95. There is no stated product limit or household ordering limit imposed.
This is the second America the Beautiful Quarters Three Coin Set to be released for this year. The previous release featuring the Homestead National Monument of America Quarter went on sale March 3, 2015 and has reached cumulative sales of 10,907 units through the most recent sales report.
