2014 Great Smoky Mountains Quarter Coin - S Mint - (UNC) Brilliant Uncirculated
- Released on 1/27/2014.
- 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 Great Smoky Mountains quarter depicts a beautiful scene similar to that of which you would encounter in the park. A classic style log cabin and split-rail fence against a background of mountains and trees, with an eagle soaring overhead.
- The 5 National Parks Released in 2014 were Great Smoky Mountains National Park in Tennessee, Shenandoah National Park in Virginia, Arches National Park in Utah, Great Sand Dunes National Park in Colorado, and Everglades National Park in Florida.
- 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.
The Great Smoky Mountains National Park is located on the border of Tennessee and North Carolina and was established on June 15, 1934. It's one of the busiest national parks in the United States, with over nine million visitors a year. It also boasts hundreds of miles of roadways and hiking trails, wildlife and forestry, and remnants of Southern Appalachian Mountain culture. The park is also designated as an international biosphere reserve due to the many species of plants and animals that live in the park. The Smoky Mountains are part of the Blue Ridge Mountains and a division of the Appalachian Mountains.
