2012 El Yunque Quarter Coin - P or D Mint - (UNC) Brilliant Uncirculated
- Released on 1/23/2012.
- 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 of the El Yunque quarter depicts a Coqui tree frog sitting on a leaf and a Puerto Rican parrot behind an epiphyte plant with tropical flora 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 coin minted at the U.S. Mint and backed by the United States government with a face value of $0.25.
El Yunque was originally established as a national site on January 17, 1903. The park is unique in that it is the sole tropical rain forest in the U.S. National Forest System.
