The final coin to be issued in 2010 as part of the American the Beautiful Quarters Program is the 2010 Mount Hood National Forest Quarter. Its official release date is November 15, 2010.

Mount Hood is located in the state of Oregon and contains over 1 million acres of pristine scenery. It received its name in 1792 when Lt. William Broughton named the peak after Lord Samuel Hood, a respected admiral of the British Royal Navy.

Mount Hood National Forest Quarter Design

Obverse design: John Flanagan's portrait of George Washington (modified by William Cousins) will be seen on the obverse of the Mount Hood National Forest Quarter. Also seen will be the inscriptions "UNITED STATES OF AMERICA," "QUARTER DOLLAR," "LIBERTY", "IN GOD WE TRUST" and the mintmark.

Reverse design: The reverse design portrays a view of Mount Hood with Lost Lake in the foreground. Inscriptions include MOUNT HOOD, OREGON, 2010 and E PLURIBUS UNUM. The coin was both designed and sculpted by Phebe Hemphill.

The design for the Mount Hood Quarter, as shown above, came about with the help of four candidates or proposals. Both bodies delegated to make recommendations for U.S. coin designs (the Citizen's Coinage Advisory Committee and the United States Commission of Fine Arts) chose design candidate OR-3, as shown in the line art images below. This design features Mount Hood in the background with a rippling lake surrounded by trees in the foreground. It was also the ultimate design that U.S. Treasury Secretary Timothy F. Geithner selected after receiving recommendations from U.S. Mint Director Ed Moy.
