General Coin Information

The final of five new quarter dollars issued by the US Mint in 2012 as part of its America the Beautiful Quarters® Program will be the 2012 Denali National Park and Preserve Quarter. Shown on the reverse of the coin will be a design emblematic of Denali National Park and Preserve which is located in the state of Alaska.

This strike not only marks the last of five to appear in 2012 but will also mark the fifteenth to appear in the series overall. The program debuted in 2010 with five new quarter dollars and will see a release rate of five per year until 2021 when the last strike of the series appears. In total, fifty-six new quarter will appear in the series with one strike representing a location from each state, the District of Columbia and the five US territories.

Denali National Park and Preserve was originally established on February 26, 1917 as Mount McKinley National Park even though only a small portion of the mountain was actually included within the park. The park was changed to its current title of Denali National Park and Preserve in 1980 to better reflect the wishes of local citizens.

Obverse Design

A portrait of George Washington is seen on the obverse as designed by John Flanagan. The portrait was originally created for use on the 1932 circulating quarter dollar and has been seen on quarters ever since, with some minor variations. Obverse inscriptions include UNITED STATES OF AMERICA, QUARTER DOLLAR, LIBERTY, IN GOD WE TRUST.

Reverse Design

The reverse of the coin contains a design emblematic of Denali by showcasing a Dall Sheep in the foreground with Mount McKinley rising in the background. This design was completed by by AIP Master Designer Susan Gamble and sculpted by United States Mint Sculptor-Engraver Jim Licaretz. Reverse inscriptions include DENALI, ALASKA, 2012 and E PLURIBUS UNUM.
