Coin collectors will soon have a new set of commemorative currency to collect.

The United States Mint will open sales for the 2016 America the Beautiful Quarters Three-Coin Set - Shawnee National Forest on Feb. 22.

The set contains two uncirculated Shawnee National Forest quarters, one from the United States Mint at Philadelphia and one from the United States Mint at Denver, and one proof coin from the United States Mint at San Francisco. 

The coins are held in a durable plastic card with an image of the site.  A certificate of authenticity is printed on the back of the card. 

Sales will also open for the 2016 United States Mint America the Beautiful Quarters Proof Set on Feb. 23.
