The United States Mint has made available the Cumberland Gap three coin set. This is the first of two releases planned by the United States Mint for this week.
The Cumberland Gap National Historical Park quarter is the second of 2016 and the 32nd overall in the America the Beautiful Quarters® Program. This follows the release of a similar set in late February of the Shawnee National Parks Quarter Dollar coin.
The reverse design depicts a frontiersman gazing across the mountains to the West, while holding his rifle. The legend reads: “CUMBERLAND GAP,” “FIRST DOORWAY TO THE WEST,” “KENTUCKY,” “2016”, and “E PLURIBUS UNUM.”
Each three–coin set features an uncirculated quarter from the U.S. Mint at Philadelphia, an uncirculated quarter from the U.S. Mint at Denver, and a proof quarter from the U.S. Mint at San Francisco. The coins are held in a durable plastic card that features a picturesque image, a brief description of the site and the coin, as well as a Certificate of Authenticity on the back of the card.
The set is currently available from the US Mint or online for $9.95
The Cumberland Gap five ounce silver coin is scheduled to be released on Thursday 05 May 2016, three days after the release of this three coin set.
