WASHINGTON – The United States Mint (Mint) will offer rolls and bags of quarters honoring Cumberland Island National Seashore in Georgia starting on August 27 at noon Eastern Time (ET).
The quarter’s reverse (tails) depicts a snowy egret posing on a branch on the edge of a salt marsh, ready for flight. The inscriptions are “CUMBERLAND ISLAND,” “GEORGIA,” “2018,” and “E PLURIBUS UNUM.”
The coin’s obverse (heads) features the 1932 portrait of George Washington by John Flanagan, 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|
|18ARL||Two-Roll Set||P, D||$32.95|
|18ARJ||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 “Cumberland Island National Seashore;” the abbreviation “GA” for Georgia; “$10,” the face value of its contents; and “P,” “D,” or “S” for the mint of origin. The canvas bags have a tag with “Cumberland Island National Seashore;” “GA;” and “P,” “D,” or “S.”
