Olympic National Park protects snow-capped mountains at dizzying altitudes, acres of rain forests, and miles of sandy Pacific shoreline; it is a national park of â€œOlympicâ€ proportions. On the reverse of the 2011 quarter, a Roosevelt elk dips its forelegs in the Hoh River as it winds its way from Mount Olympus, pictured in the background. Also printed on the edges of the coin are the words OLYMPIC, WASHINGTON, 2011, and E PLURIBUS UNUM.
Many of the nation's collectors and American history enthusiasts seek the added value of a pristine uncirculated quarter from each mint. As circulated quarters continue to be difficult to find, these collections will become a premium item. The Olympic Park quarter is scheduled to be released in June. It will be the third of the 2011 National Parks Quarters. Our collections feature both a P and D minted quarter affixed to a 5"x5" trifold card packed with interesting information, fascinating history and vibrant images. These collections make the entire series fit seamlessly together creating a comprehensive and valuable treasure for families and collectors alike.
