41st quarter captures natural beauty of Pictured Rocks National Lakeshore
WASHINGTON – The United States Mint will offer bags and rolls of quarters honoring Pictured Rocks National Lakeshore in Michigan starting on February 5 at noon Eastern Time (ET). This is the first of five quarters that will be released this year and the 41st release in the America the Beautiful Quarters® Program.
The coin’s reverse (tails) depicts Chapel Rock and the white pine tree that grows atop. The inscriptions are “PICTURED ROCKS,” “MICHIGAN,” “2018,” and “E PLURIBUS UNUM.” The obverse (heads) features the 1932 portrait of George Washington by John Flanagan, which has been restored to bring out subtle details and the beauty of the original model. Inscriptions are “UNITED STATES OF AMERICA,” “LIBERTY,” “IN GOD WE TRUST,” and “QUARTER DOLLAR.”
Product options and their prices are as follows:
|Product Code||Product Option||Mint Mark||Price|
Coins in the rolls and bags are struck on the main production floors at the United States Mint facilities at Philadelphia, Denver, and San Francisco. The three-roll set contains coins from all three facilities. Unlike the “P” and “D” mint mark quarters, those with the “S” mint mark will not be released into circulation.
The special numismatic wrapping for the coin rolls displays the name “Pictured Rocks National Lakeshore;” the abbreviation “MI” for Michigan; “$10,” the face value of its contents; and “P,” “D,” or “S” for the mint of origin. The canvas bags have a tag with “Pictured Rocks National Lakeshore;” “MI;” and “P,” “D,” or “S.”
