2015 Kisatchie Quarter Coin - S Mint - (UNC) Brilliant Uncirculated
- Released on 4/13/2015.
- 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 Kisatchie quarter shows a wild turkey in flight. Also in the design is blue stem grass and long leaf pine trees – common vegetation found in the park.
- The 5 National Parks Released in 2015 were Homestead National Monument of America in Nebraska, Kisatchie National Park in Louisiana, Blue Ridge Parkway in North Carolina, Bombay Hook National Wildlife Refuge in Delaware, and Saratoga National Historical Park in New York.
- 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.
Kisatchie National Forest, designated so under President Herbert Hoover in 1930, in Louisiana, spans over 600,000 acres. Recreational activities in the national forest include hiking, fishing/hunting, biking, canoeing/boating, swimming, bird watching, and more, among 100 miles of trails. Not only a recreational area, the forest protects many examples of northern Louisiana landscapes, habitats, and plant and animal species. The most notable areas of the park are the Cunningham Brake (a large swamp) and the Saline Bayou (a combination of forest and wetlands). The park’s name stems from a tribe of Kichai Indians of the Caddoan Confederacy, who called themselves "Kitsatchie".
All coins come in protective plastic. Orders of 40 or more may ship in tubes.
