This 2018 Pictured Rocks Natural Lakeshore in Michigan quarter is minted at the United States Mint at Philadelphia and has never been placed into circulation.
Established in 1966 as our first national lakeshore, Michigan’s Pictured Rocks National Lakeshore is a narrow strip of a park that hugs the Lake Superior coast for more than 40 miles. The shoreline consists of 200-foot-high colourful sandstone cliffs, numerous beaches, and 300-foot-tall sand dunes. The shoreline is bordered by boreal and eastern hardwood forests with numerous waterfalls, streams, and lakes. There is abundant wildlife, including black bears, deer, and porcupine, with bald eagles and peregrine falcons dotting the skies.
The selected design depicts Chapel Rock and the white pine tree that grows atop. Surrounding the design are inscriptions reading "PICTURED ROCKS," "MICHIGAN," "2018," and "E PLURIBUS UNUM."
Quarter obverses share the same portrait of George Washington.
