2018 Voyageurs Quarter Coin - S Mint - (UNC) Brilliant Uncirculated
- Released on 6/11/2018.
- 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.
- Featured on the reverse is a serene landscape featuring a loon resting on the water with a cliff in the background and trees in the distance.
- The 5 National Parks Released in 2018 were Pictured Rocks National Lakeshore in Michigan, Apostle Islands National Lakeshore in Wisconsin, Voyageurs National Park in Minnesota, Cumberland Island Seashore in Georgia, and Block Island National Wildlife Refuge in Rhode Island.
- 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.
A wonder of waterways, islands and lakes, Voyageurs National Park sits on the Canadian border on the edge of Minnesota. The grounds were once traveled heavily by European settlers and French-Canadian fur traders called Voyageurs.

Visitors of the park can enjoy hiking, boating, camping and fishing, as well as wildlife sightings, including white-tailed deer, black bears, moose, foxes, beavers and river otters, bald eagles, loons, owls and more!
