United States Mint Releases Product Options with George Rogers Clark National Historical Park Quarters on Nov. 13

WASHINGTON – United States Mint products featuring America the Beautiful Quarters® Program coins honoring George Rogers Clark National Historical Park will be available for purchase starting on November 13 at noon Eastern Time (ET).

The coin’s reverse (tails) design features George Rogers Clark leading his men through the flooded plains approaching Fort Sackville with the inscriptions “GEORGE ROGERS CLARK,” “INDIANA,” “2017,” and “E PLURIBUS UNUM.” The reverse was designed by Frank Morris, Artistic Infusion Program designer, and engraved by Michael Gaudioso, United States Mint Sculptor-Engraver. The obverse (heads) design features the 1932 portrait of George Washington by John Flanagan.

Product options and their prices are as follows: 

The rolls and bags contain coins that were struck on the main production floors at the Philadelphia, Denver, and San Francisco Mint facilities. The three-roll set contains coins from all three facilities. Unlike the “P” and “D” mint mark quarters, those with the “S” mint mark will not be released into circulation.

The special numismatic wrapping for the coin rolls displays the name “George Rogers Clark National Historical Park;” the abbreviation “IN” for Indiana; “$10,” the face value of its contents; and “P,” “D,” or “S” for the mint of origin. The canvas bags have a tag with “George Rogers Clark National Historical Park,” “IN,” and “P,” “D,” or “S.”

Orders will be accepted at https://catalog.usmint.gov/ and at 1-800-USA-MINT (872-6468). Hearing- and speech-impaired customers with TTY equipment may order by calling 1-888-321-MINT (6468). Information on shipping options is available online.
