A “D” minted Hawai’i Volcanoes National Park quarter. The Hawai’i Volcanoes National Park quarter is the fourth of the 2012 America the Beautiful Quarters from the U.S. Mint. The park was first established as a national site on August 1, 1916 and was created to preserve the natural setting of Kilauea and Mauna Loa volcanoes. Hawai’i Volcanoes National Park is one of the most fascinating biological landscapes in the world and is located more than 2,000 miles from the nearest continental land mass. The reverse of the quarter depicts an eruption on the east rift of Kilauea Volcano, capturing the magnificent beauty of the volcano. Inscriptions on the quarter include: HAWAI’I VOLCANOES, HAWAII, 2012 and E PLURIBUS UNUM.
