2012 / America the Beautiful Quarter BU / Denali National Park
America the Beautiful Quarters capture the breathtaking beauty of America’s natural landscapes that have inspired countless poets, adventurers, and artists. The U.S. is honoring our Nation's national parks and sites on quarters featuring five new designs each year.
Released in 2012, the Denali National Park Quarter features the 6 million acres in the state of Alaska which includes the awe-inspiring 20,320-foot Mount McKinley, the tallest mountain in North America. The park’s dynamic glaciated landscape supports a diversity of wildlife, including grizzly bears, caribou, wolves, Dall sheep and moose. Archeological evidence that dates back more than 12,000 years ago indicates Alaska’s native people moved through this landscape seasonally, likely hunting large mammals, fishing and gathering plants.
This particular coin is in brilliant, uncirculated condition and comes encased in an air-tight capsule to protect the coin's integrity. Purchase this coin separately or add this 2012 quarter to one of our CoinArt selections.
