How Much Is The 2020 Salt River Bay Quarter Worth?

Last Updated on April 4, 2022

The 2020 Salt River bay quarters were created to honor the place itself and its rich history. The Salt River Bay was designated a Wildlife Reserve by Congress in 1992 to conserve, safeguard, and communicate the narrative of the region’s unique contributions towards the country’s environmental and historical history.

What Is the Value of These Coins?

  • Clad quarters:

The current price of the regular 2020 Salt River Bay clad quarters in circulating condition is only $0.25. Usually the better the condition, the more the grades of these coins will command a price.

In near-uncirculated form, both the 2020 P Salt River Bay quarter as well as the 2020 D Salt River Bay quarter were valued roughly $0.50. In mint condition form with an MS 63 grading, the coin is worth roughly $0.75. MS 65 uncirculated coins may be purchased for roughly $1.

In MS 63 mint state, the 2020 W Salt River Bay quarter is valued roughly $10. In MS 65 uncirculated form, the coin is worth roughly $25.

In MS 63 mint condition, the 2020 S Salt River Bay quarter is valued roughly $2. In MS 65 numismatic state, the coin is worth roughly $3. In PR 65 shape, the 2020 S proof Salt River Bay quarter is valued roughly $3.

  • Silver proof quarters:

This mint mark is a simple way to tell if your coin is silver or not. Instead of a “P” or “D,” the silver quarters will feature a “S” mintmark. In addition to the silver quarters, late-night television stations began selling gold-plated National Park Quarters in an attempt to deceive viewers into believing the coin was worth much more.

Each piece is valued at its weight in silver. The present silver market price of $25.00 per ounce is used to compute this melt value.

In PR 65 condition, the 2020 S silver proof Salt River Bay quarter is valued roughly $10.

Proof of 65 This piece contains no defects. A few imperfections are possible.

What Does the Salt River Bay Quarter Look Like?

The backside image represents a red mangrove tree in a young phase of its life cycle, as it grows out of a tiny plant into a mature tree. This image garners attention towards the park’s threatened mangrove forests as well as the distinctive and fragile aspect of the animals’ reproduction in saline water.

Furthermore, a tiny secret marking was placed to the coin’s front. This secret mark features the word “V75” within an outline of the Rainbow Pool at the World War II Memorial in Washington, DC.

This mint mark appears on the obverse side of each piece beneath the inscription “IN GOD WE TRUST.”

The purpose of “V75” is to honor the 75th Anniversary of the United States’ Decisive victory in World War II rendering it a rather historic and meaningful coin.

More About the Coins

The conventional 2020 Salt River Bay quarters are built of a copper and nickel clad combination. Quarters with clad proofs as well as silver proofs have also been minted, and those are sold for a higher price.

These coins are part of the America the Beautiful quarters agenda. The Salt River Bay quarter was produced in many distinct batches in the United States.

The 2020 P quarter, 2020 D quarter, 2020 W quarter, 2020 S quarter, 2020 S proof quarter, and 2020 S silver proof quarter are all available for purchase.

Proof pieces have greater depth than regular coins. These require a longer time to create since they are struck upon special planchets. You won’t be finding any of those in your loose change since they’re manufactured exclusively for collecting.
