This 2018 Apostle Voyageurs National Park in Minnesota quarter is minted at the United States Mint at Philadelphia and has never been placed into circulation.
Minnesota’s Voyageurs National Park was established in 1971 “to preserve the outstanding scenery, geological conditions, and waterway system” inherent to the park, which protects 218,054 acres, including 84,000 acres of water. It consists of miles of undeveloped shoreline, with hundreds of islands and numerous lakes. The combination of rocky shorelines, southern boreal and northern hardwood forests, and open water create a distinct home for bald eagles, loons, black bears, moose, and wolves.
The coin design depicts a common loon with a rock cliff in the background. Quarter obverses share the same portrait of George Washington.
