The Effigy Mounds National Monument is a federally protected area in the state of Iowa, in Allamakee and Clayton Counties, that preserves more than 200 prehistoric mounds built by various Native American tribes. The mounds have various shapes, with the most common including bears and birds, and were built during the first millennium.

Coins in BU condition have no signs of wear and tear on the surfaces, though you may notice a range of minor flaws including breaks in the luster, spotted surfaces, and contact marks from the coining process at the mint.
The obverse of all ATB Silver Effigy Mounds National Monument coins includes the common obverse design theme, that of President George Washington. This left-profile portrait has appeared on the circulation 25-cent piece since 1932 and was created by John Flanagan.
