Featuring probably the best internationally known park from the United States is the 2010 Grand Canyon National Park Quarter. As the fourth coin in the America the Beautiful Quarters series, it will be released into circulation by the U.S. Mint on September 20, 2010.

Located in the state of Arizona, the park is home to the vast canyon which at times reaches a width of up to 18 miles with a depth of over a mile. The walls of the canyon were cut over thousands of years by the erosive effects of the Colorado River which winds its way at the bottom of the natural wonder.

The area became a national park in 1919 after having first been designated a federal game preserve and then a monument.

Grand Canyon National Park Quarter Design

Obverse design: William Cousin's recent adaptation of John Flanagan's portrait of George Washington will be seen on the obverse along with the inscriptions "UNITED STATES OF AMERICA," "QUARTER DOLLAR," "LIBERTY", "IN GOD WE TRUST" and the mint mark.

Reverse design: The reverse design features a view of the granaries above the Nankoweap Delta in Marble Canyon near the Colorado River. Inscriptions are GRAND CANYON, ARIZONA, 2010 and E PLURIBUS UNUM. It was both designed and sculpted by Phebe Hemphill.

The following four line art images were proposals that were considered before the final design (shown above) was selected by U.S. Treasury Secretary Timothy F. Geithner after receiving recommendations from U.S. Mint Director Ed Moy.
