2019 America the Beautiful Quarters® Program – American Memorial Park Rolls and Bags
The American Memorial Park quarter is the second in 2019 and 47th overall in the America the Beautiful Quarters Program.
American Memorial Park in the Northern Mariana Islands honors the thousands of American troops and local residents of Saipan who gave their lives during the Marianas Campaign of World War II. At the memorial, the American flag is displayed at the center of the Flag Circle and surrounded by the Navy, Marine Corps, Army, and Coast Guard flags. The Court of Honor consists of 26 granite panels inscribed with the names of 5,204 service members who died.
The park’s 133 acres includes white beaches, sporting areas, picnic sites, playgrounds, and walkways. A series of wayside markers located throughout the island describe events such as the maneuvers of both American and Japanese troops, artifacts, and architectural remnants.
The reverse (tails) design depicts a young woman in traditional dress at the front of the Flag Circle and Court of Honor. She is resting her hand on the plaque whose text honors the sacrifice of those who died in the Marianas Campaign of World War II. Inscriptions are "AMERICAN MEMORIAL PARK," "N. MARIANA ISLANDS," "2019," and "E PLURIBUS UNUM."
