Great Sand Dunes National Park and Preserve has the tallest dunes in North America as the centerpiece of the site’s diverse landscape of grasslands, wetlands, conifer and aspen forests, alpine lakes, and tundra. These can be experienced through hiking, sand sledding, splashing in Medano Creek and watching wildlife. The Great Sand Dunes National Park was first established as a national site on March 17, 1932 (47 Stat. 2506).
As part of the America the Beautiful Quarters® Program, the U.S. Mint introduced the America the Beautiful Quarters Three–Coin Sets to honor the Nation’s national parks and other national sites.
The America the Beautiful Quarters® Program features designs depicting national parks and other national sites. Each year, five new national site designs are depicted on the reverse (tails) of the America the Beautiful Quarters. The U.S. Mint will issue these quarters in the order in which the honored sites were established as national sites.
Each coin in the series features a common obverse (heads) of the 1932 portrait of George Washington by John Flanagan, restored to bring out subtle details and the beauty of the original model.
