The 2014 America the Beautiful Five Ounce Silver Uncirculated Coin™ - Arches National Park is the third of 2014 and the 23rd overall in the America the Beautiful Quarters® Program. This park is a red rock wonderland. Visitors will discover a landscape of contrasting colors, landforms and textures unlike any others in the world. Arches National Park has more than 2,000 natural stone arches, as well as hundreds of soaring pinnacles, massive fins and giant balanced rocks. It was first established as a national site on April 12, 1929 (46 Stat. 2988).
The reverse depicts Delicate Arch, a 65-foot freestanding natural arch. It is a widely recognizable landmark in Utah and the most famous arch found in the park. It has been depicted on postage stamps and license plates. The Olympic torch relay for the 2002 Winter Olympics passed through this arch. The La Sal Mountains are visible in the background. Inscriptions are “ARCHES, UTAH, 2014” and “E PLURIBUS UNUM.” Design candidates were developed in consultation with representatives of Arches National Park.
In 2010, the U.S. Mint began to issue 56 quarter-dollar coins featuring designs depicting national parks and other national sites as part of the United States Mint America the Beautiful Quarters® Program. 2014 marks the fifth year of the program and features the next 5 quarters.
