2018 America the Beautiful Quarters® Program – Pictured Rocks National Lakeshore Rolls and Bags are now available.
The Pictured Rocks National Lakeshore quarter is the first of 2018 and 41st overall in the America the Beautiful Quarters Program. Pictured Rocks National Lakeshore embodies wild beauty on the Lake Superior shore. Established in 1966 as the first national lakeshore, it is a narrow strip of a park that hugs the Lake Superior coast for more than 40 miles. The shoreline consists of 200-feet high colorful sandstone cliffs, numerous beaches, and 300-feet tall sand dunes.
Scenic vistas and more than 100 miles of trails offer visitors superb opportunities for hiking, backpacking, camping, and sightseeing. Lake Superior and inland lakes offer boating opportunities, including kayaking, canoeing, and boat tours along the cliffs (the only way for visitors to view the cliffs is from the water). There is abundant wildlife, such as black bears, deer, and porcupine, as well as bald eagles and peregrine falcons using the Pictured Rocks cliffs.
The reverse (tails) design depicts Chapel Rock and the white pine tree that grows atop with the inscriptions “PICTURED ROCKS,” “MICHIGAN,” “2018,” and “E PLURIBUS UNUM.”
