From the salty shores of Georgia to the serene waters of Wisconsin, next year’s batch of America the Beautiful Quarters capture more of the country’s natural beauty.


The United States Mint unveiled its 2018 quarter designs earlier this year. All five of the quarters’ fronts feature the usual portrait of George Washington, but the backs depict different national sites from across the nation.

According to Coin Values, collectors have a number of options for obtaining the 2018 America the Beautiful Quarters, including via sets distributed by the U.S. Mint. They’ll also be in circulation soon, meaning you may eventually find one (or all) in your loose change.

Next year is the ninth year of the America the Beautiful Quarters Program, where the U.S. Mint produces new quarters depicting national sites from each of the 50 states, the District of Columbia, and the five U.S. territories. The quarters are unveiled at a rate of five a year, with the final one to be released in 2021.
