Coins with a DPL designation are known as deeply-mirrored, proof-like specimens. Although these are bullion products, you’ll notice finishing features similar to that of a proof coin. The background fields are mirrored, giving a proof-like appearance.
These coins are the fourth release in the America the Beautiful coin series, which debuted in 2010 from the United States Mint. The concept for the coins originated with the state quarters program. Those coins were released by the US Mint for circulation use in 1999, and represented only the 50 US states.
On the reverse side you’ll find the image of migratory birds stopping in the Bombay Hook National Wildlife Refuge. This is surrounded by engravings of the park’s name, state’s name, and the year of issue.
The obverse depicts the nation’s first president, George Washington, in left-profile relief. This is the same image found on the nation’s circulation quarters, and was refined in 1932 by John Flanagan based upon a 1786 portrait of Washington created by William Cousins.
