This 2018 Apostle Islands National Lakeshore in Wisconsin quarter is minted at the United States Mint at Philadelphia and has never been placed into circulation.
Wisconsin’s Apostle Islands National Lakeshore was established in 1970 to protect “certain significant islands, shoreline, and light stations of the U.S. and their related geographic, scenic, historic, and scientific values.” The park includes 21 islands in Lake Superior and a 12-mile-long strip of mainland shoreline encompassing more than 69,000 acres. The park features pristine stretches of sand beaches and coves; spectacular sea caves; remnant old-growth upper forests; a diverse population of birds, mammals, amphibians, and fish; and a number of lighthouses and lighthouse complexes.
The selected design depicts the sea caves at Devils Island with the lighthouse in the background and a kayaker paddling in the foreground. Surrounding the design are inscriptions reading "APOSTLE ISLANDS", "WISCONSIN", "2018" and "E PLURIBUS UNUM".
Quarter obverses share the same portrait of George Washington.
