America the Beautiful is a 56-coin series from the United States Mint built upon the success of the state quarters program. The coins in the series will honor one national park, forest, monument, or historic moment from American history in each of the 50 US states, five overseas territories, and the federal District of Columbia.
On the reverse you’ll notice the image of water fowl within the waters of Kisatchie National Forest. Engravings identify the state of issue, the name of the park represented, and the year of issue for the coin.
The obverse side bears a left-profile portrait of President George Washington. Originally created in 1786 by sculptor William Cousins, John Flanagan refined this design in 1932 for use on American circulation quarters.
