The reverse (tails) design, inspired by the bird population in the Everglades, features an anhinga with outstretched wings on a willow tree with a roseate spoonbill visible in the mid-ground. Both birds are found throughout the Everglades National Park. Inscriptions are “EVERGLADES, FLORIDA, 2014” and “E PLURIBUS UNUM.”
Everglades is the largest subtropical wilderness in the United States and protects an unparalleled landscape that provides important habitat for numerous rare and endangered species like the manatee, American crocodile and elusive Florida panther. An international treasure as well, it is designated as a world heritage site, international biosphere reserve and wetland of international importance. It was first established as a national site on May 30, 1934 (48 Stat. 816).
