Mount Hood National Forest was officially established as a National Forest under the control of the US Forest Service in July, 1908. However, its history dates back to the establishment of Bull Run Forest Reserve in 1892. The modern park emerged in 1908 when Bull Run Forest Reserve was merged with part of Cascade National Forest and known then as Oregon National Forest. The present name has been in use since 1924.
The design of the 2010 Mount Hood Silver Coin features the image of Lost Lake and Mount Hood. Located in Hood River County, Oregon, the lake is fed by various intermittent creeks and is bounded on either side by Lost Lake Butte and Preachers Peak, both of which rise more than 4,400 feet high.
On the reverse of 2010-P 5 oz Burnished Silver ATB Mt. Hood Coins is the image of Lost Lake in the foreground. The massive heights of Mount Hood dominate the background field, rising high above the peaks of Lost Lake Butte and Preachers Peak.
The obverse of 2010 Burnished Silver ATB Coins includes the left-profile portrait of President George Washington. The nation’s first president, Washington has been on the circulation quarter since 1932 when his depiction was placed there in honor of his 200th birthday.
Burnished Silver ATB Coins are available with a matte luster courtesy of the vapor-blasted finish applied to the coins. Burnished coins are handled with care at the United States Mint to ensure that the coins have visual beauty and no blemishes, maintaining their different finish compared to the shinier bullion coins. The Burnished Silver ATB Coins have “P” mint marks from the Philadelphia Mint.
