The cover of the album containing the 14 Uncirculated coins set issued in 2014 by the Denver Mint including the five ATB Quarters discussed in this post.
Obverse of the 14 Uncirculated coins set issued by the Denver Mint in 2014.
This is an image of a quarter received in general circulation, brought for me from the USA, by Jayant Biswas.
The Reverse design shows a father and son playing in the sand next to the creek bed. One can see the distinctive Sangre de Cristo Mountains and sand dunes of the Park in the background, which complete the picture on the coin. On the upper periphery is mentioned “GREAT SAND DUNES”. On the lower Periphery in mentioned “COLORADO” “E.PLURIBUS UNUM” (meaning “One among Many”) and the year of issue “2014”. The reverse has been designed and engraved by Don Everhart, whose initials will appear on the actual coins.
P.S: I was not able to book these coins on the US Mint website this year as the website was reading "India" as Indiana". Perplexed, I took up this difficulty with the US Mint, which has advised me that they are no longer "shipping to India", without assigning any reason whatsoever. The website has done another "strange" thing, by changing my address in the earlier shipped orders from 2010 onwards, from "India" to "US", an anomaly which they have not corrected despite my taking up with them several times. I have placed a light-hearted article on my "strange experience" on this blog, which can be accessed through the link placed at No. 11 below.
