America the Beautiful is a 56-coin series that was introduced in 2010.

When the program ends in 2021, there will be one coin representing each of the 50 states, five territories, and the federal district.
Arches National Park covers 76,679 acres around the city of Moab, Utah. The park’s unique sandstone arches are the result of the regions large underground evaporite layer, known as a salt bed. The erosion of those salt layers resulted, over time, in the formation of the massive, stunning arches.
On the obverse side of the coin is the image of the famous Delicate Arch rising toward the sky, its precisely balanced rocks relying upon one another for structural support.
