The Apostle Islands National Lakeshore quarter is the second of 2018 and 42nd overall in the America the Beautiful Quarters Program.
The U.S. Congress established Apostle Islands National Lakeshore in 1970. The enabling legislation recognizes the significance of the lakeshore’s natural, historic, scientific, and archaeological features for the purpose of protecting these features and making them available for public education and enjoyment. The park includes 21 islands in Lake Superior and a 12-mile-long strip of mainland shoreline encompassing more than 69,000 acres, almost 40 percent of which are Lake Superior waters. The park lies within the heart of the ancestral and modern homeland of the Ojibwe people.
The park features pristine stretches of sand beaches and coves; spectacular sea caves; some of the highest quality, remnant old- growth upper forest in the Midwest; a diverse population of birds, mammals, amphibians and fish; and the largest collection of National Register lighthouses and lighthouse complexes in the national park system.
The reverse (tails) design depicts the sea caves at Devils Island with a lighthouse in the background and a kayaker paddling in the foreground. Inscriptions are “APOSTLE ISLANDS,” “WISCONSIN,” “2018,” and “E PLURIBUS UNUM.”
