2012 Denali Quarter Coin - S Mint - (UNC) Brilliant Uncirculated
- Released on 11/25/2012.
- The obverse shows a slightly modified version of the original Washington Quarter. The mint moved some of the wording previously found on the reverse to the obverse in order to make more room for the reverse design for each state. You'll find "United States of America," "In God We Trust," "Liberty," and "Quarter Dollar" all spelled out on the obverse of the quarter as well as the coin's mint mark.
- The reverse design of the Denali Quarter portrays a Dall sheep with Mount McKinley in the background.
- The 5 National Parks Released in 2012 were El Yunque National Forest in Puerto Rico, Chaco Culture National Historical Park in New Mexico, Acadia National Park in Maine, Hawai’i Volcanoes National Park in Hawaii and Denali National Park and Preserve in Alaska.
- Sovereign coins minted at the San Francisco Branch of the U.S. Mint and backed by the United States government, each with a face value of $0.25. The America the Beautiful Quarter Program began in 2010, but Uncirculated Quarters were not minted at San Francisco until 2012.
Denali National Park and Preserve, established in 1917, is previously known as Mount McKinley National park. In 1980, the park more than doubled in size to 6 million acres to include preservation lands. The park was originally formed to protect wildlife populations, and is currently home to Dall sheep, moose, wolves, grizzly bears and caribou.
All coins come in protective plastic. Orders of 40 or more may ship in tubes.
