2012 America the Beautiful Quarters

Posted by Mint News Blog | Filed Under: America the Beautiful Quarters


Designs for the 2012 America the Beautiful Quarters have been announced by the United States Mint. Preliminary circulation release dates for the coins are also available based on information from the Federal Reserve Banks.

The five coins issued for the third year of the series will feature El Yunque National Forest in Puerto Rico, Chaco Culture National Historical Park in New Mexico, Acadia National Park in Maine, Hawai’i Volcanoes National Park in Hawaii, and Denali National Park and Preserve in Alaska. Initially, the US Mint produced four to five different candidate designs, which were reviewed by the Commission of Fine Arts (CFA), the Citizens Coinage Advisory Committee (CCAC), and others.

Details of the CFA’s design recommendations can be found here. Images of all of the design candidates as well as the CCAC’s recommendations can be found here.

The images below represent the final design selections for the 2012 America the Beautiful Quarters. Also included is information on the designers and sculptors, anticipated circulation release dates, descriptions of the designs, and any relevant commentary from the CFA and CCAC reviews.





El Yunque National Forest Quarter
Release Date: January 23, 2012
Designer: Gary Whitley
Sculptor: Michael Gaudioso

The design features an image of the Coqui tree frog and a Puerto Rican parrot behind an epiphtye plant with more tropical flora in the background. The Puerto Rican parrot is an endangered species that is unique to Puerto Rico. Its recovery began with the few birds left in El Yunque.

The CFA had recommended this design featuring animals and foliage that were distinctive features of the park. They did suggest revising the image of a plant that initially appeared behind the frog. This plant was removed for the final design. The CCAC also recommended this design, although one member thought the frog might resemble a bug on the small diameter of the quarter.
