The fifth coin is the 2013 5 oz Silver ATB Mount Rushmore National Park, South Dakota. Designs for all the 2013 America the Beautiful Quarters were revealed by the U.S. Mint on December 10, 2012. Images of the five 2013-dated quarters were published in line-art form. Actual images of the coins have since been released, as exampled above. With such a distinctive and well-known subject as Mount Rushmore, it is not hard to guess what the basic design of the quarter honoring it looks like. It was more difficult in this round, however, since Mount Rushmore has appeared before on U.S. coins. This latest design, by Joseph Menna, is inspired by photos of men who are adding the final details to Thomas Jefferson’s face Inscriptions include MOUNT RUSHMORE, SOUTH DAKOTA, 2013 and E PLURIBUS UNUM. Located near Keystone, South Dakota, Mount Rushmore is considered one of the most iconic symbols of the United States. Initial carving on the monument started in 1927 and did not end until 1941, with all but one season completed under the watchful eye of sculptor Gutzon Borglum. Due to Gutzon’s death, the finishing touches were supervised by his son. In total, around 400 workers helped to sculpt the memorial with an estimated cost of $989,992.32 and no deaths. The memorial consists of 60-foot faces of four of the nation’s best known Presidents: George Washington, Thomas Jefferson, Abraham Lincoln and Theodore Roosevelt. Since the sculpture is exposed to the elements, many wonder if erosion is a concern. However, estimations are that it will erode 1 inch in 10,000 years. The mountain itself gets its name from Charles E. Rushmore, a New York City attorney who visited the region in 1885.
