Everglades National Park Quarter

2014-Everglades-National-Park-Quarter-and-Coin-Design-300x2991Final designs for the 2014 America the Beautiful Quarters have been announced by the United States Mint and an Everglades National Park coin is among the final versions to be released.  Two water birds are shown on the reverse design of the Everglades National Park quarter and five ounce silver coins. An anhinga in the foreground is depicted with outstretched wings on a willow tree while a roseate spoonbill is further in the distance.

The America the Beautiful Quarters Program debuted from the United States Mint in 2010 and was authorized by congress under the America’s Beautiful National Parks Quarter Dollar Coin Act of 2008. Five new strikes are released annually as part of the series with each honoring a different site of national interest from around the United States and its territories.

    Would have been nice if a tarpon had been in their instead of the anhinga or snakebird or another name given by old Florida crackers. Just saying. I did not vote for the anhinga!

    Earle, I think it would have been nice to use a gamefish also. They also had some clouds in the original design but they were removed in the final version.
