WASHINGTON – The United States Mint (Mint) will offer bags and rolls of quarters honoring Apostle Islands National Lakeshore in Wisconsin starting on April 9 at noon Eastern Time (ET).
The quarter’s reverse (tails) design depicts the sea caves at Devils Island with the lighthouse in the background and a kayaker paddling in the foreground. The inscriptions are “APOSTLE ISLANDS,” “WISCONSIN,” “2018,” and “E PLURIBUS UNUM.” The 1932 portrait of George Washington by John Flanagan featured on the obverse (heads) is 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|
|18ARD||Two-Roll Set||P, D||$32.95|
|18ARF||Three-Roll Set||P, D, S||$46.95|
The Mint produces the coins in the rolls and bags at its 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 “Apostle Islands National Lakeshore;” the abbreviation “WI” for Wisconsin; “$10,” the face value of its contents; and “P,” “D,” or “S” for the mint of origin. The canvas bags have a tag with “Apostle Islands National Lakeshore;” “WI;” and “P,” “D,” or “S.”
