2013 Mount Rushmore Quarter Coin - S Mint - (UNC) Brilliant Uncirculated
- Released on 11/4/2013.
- The obverse shows a slightly modified version of the original Washington Quarter. The mint moved some of the wording previously found on the reverse to the obverse in order to make more room for the reverse design for each state. You'll find "United States of America," "In God We Trust," "Liberty," and "Quarter Dollar" all spelled out on the obverse of the quarter as well as the coin's mint mark.
- The reverse design of the Mt. Rushmore quarter is unique and unlike any other coin featuring Mount Rushmore. It depicts one of the sculptors finishing the face of Thomas Jefferson as another sculptor is shown on a construction walkway. George Washington's profile is shown on the left of the coin.
- The 5 National Parks Released in 2013 were White Mountain National Forest in New Hampshire, Perry's Victory and International Peace Memorial in Ohio, Great Basin National Park in Nevada, Fort McHenry National Monument and Historic Shrine in Maryland, and Mount Rushmore National Memorial in South Dakota.
- Sovereign coins minted at the San Francisco Branch of the U.S. Mint and backed by the United States government, each with a face value of $0.25. The America the Beautiful Quarter Program began in 2010, but Uncirculated Quarters were not minted at San Francisco until 2012.
The Mount Rushmore National Memorial is located in the Black Hills of South Dakota and displays carvings in the granite face of the mountain of George Washington, Thomas Jefferson, Theodore Roosevelt and Abraham Lincoln. Each face is 60 feet high and was carved by Gutzon Borglum and his son, Lincoln Borglum.
