Great Smoky Mountains National Park Honored With Quarter

The United States Mint launched the America the Beautiful Quarters® Program coin honoring Great Smoky Mountains National Park on January 29, 2014 in Gatlinburg.  This is the 21st coin in the program, the United States Mint's multi-year initiative to honor our national parks and other national sites. 

The reverse (tails) design depicts a log cabin that features architectural elements from several historic homes preserved within Great Smoky Mountains National Park with a segment of the lush green forest and a hawk circling above.  Inscriptions are GREAT SMOKY MOUNTAINS, TENNESSEE, 2014 and E PLURIBUS UNUM.

The same day, the United States Mint began accepting orders for collectible bags and rolls of coins with the Great Smoky Mountains National Park design struck at its facilities in Denver, Philadelphia, and San Francisco.  The bureau is accepting orders for these products at its online catalog,, and at 1-800-USA-MINT (872-6468).
