An Idaho wilderness has been captured for posterity on the newest releases of the America the Beautiful Quarters® programme.
The release, the fiftieth in the programme, comprises a three-coin set, an uncirculated 50z silver coin, plus rolls and bags.
The Frank Church River of No Return
The Frank Church-River of No Return Wilderness is made up of mountains, canyons, and whitewater rivers, including the Main Salmon River and Middle Fork of the Salmon River.
Designated a national site in 1980, the River of No Return Wilderness was later renamed in honour of the late U.S. Senator Frank Church, who played a leading role in its establishment as a protected wilderness.
Coin details: 5oz silver uncirculated coin
The reverse design depicts a piloted drift boat on the river, encompassed by the trees and rock formations of the wilderness. Inscriptions are “RIVER OF NO RETURN,” “WILDERNESS,” “IDAHO,” 2019,” and “E PLURIBUS UNUM.”
