Denali National Park covers a massive 6 million acres of space in Alaska’s interior, and includes forests in lower elevations, tundra, glaciers, rock, and snow is dominant as the elevation increases. Mount McKinley, referred to locally as Denali, is the heart of the park. The park was originally established in 1917.
The America the Beautiful coin series was introduced in 2010, and is scheduled to run through 2021. Each coin in the series will represent a different state, territory, or the federal district in the United States. The United States Mint unveils a set of five new coins each year, with reverse imagery that is unique to each location.
On the reverse side of the coin is the image of a stoic mountain goat standing along the cliffs of Denali, with his eyes fixed in the distance. Engravings on this side read “Alaska,” “Denali,” and the year of minting, as well as “E Pluribus Unum.”
The obverse side bears the familiar imagery found on the circulation quarter. President George Washington’s left-profile bust is featured in the center, with the phrases “United States of America,” “Liberty,” and “In God We Trust” engraved around the image.
Each of these coins was produced by the United States Mint, and issued a near-perfect Mint State 69 grade from the PCGS. This condition is highlighted by full, original luster and no more than two blemishes, contact marks, or detracting flaws.
