The 2011 Chickasaw National Recreation Area Quarter will be issued by the US Mint on November 14, 2011 as the tenth release of the America the Beautiful Quarters Program®. It honors the site in Oklahoma and also marks the fifth of five quarter dollars to be issued by the US Mint during the year.

Issued previous to the Chickasaw Quarter in 2011 will be the Gettysburg Quarter, Glacier Quarter, Olympic Quarter and the Vicksburg Quarter. All of the coins in the series honor a different site of national interest from around the United States. A total of fifty-six different locations will have been honored in the program before it is completed in 2021.

The Chickasaw National Recreation Area was originally established as Sulphur Springs Reservation on July 1, 1902. After a couple of name changes and being combined with another national area, it assumed its current title on March 17, 1976.

Almost 10,000 acres of land are now a part of the recreation area, but it was originally established with a relatively small 640 acres purchased from the Chickasaw Indian Nation, from which it gets its name. Part of that original purchase agreement required the government to not charge an admission fee to the area, which remains true today.

Chickasaw National Recreation Area Quarter Design

Obverse design: "UNITED STATES OF AMERICA," "QUARTER DOLLAR," "LIBERTY", "IN GOD WE TRUST" and the mintmark are all inscribed around a portrait of George Washington, the first President of the United States, on the obverse of the coin. The portrait is included on all of the America the Beautiful coins and was originally created for the 1932 circulating quarter dollar by John Flanagan.

Reverse design: AIP Master Designer Donna Weaver designed the reverse of the Chickasaw Quarter which was sculpted by United States Mint Sculptor-Engraver Jim Licaretz. It shows the Lincoln Bridge, a famous landmark of the recreation area. Surrounding the bridge scene are the inscriptions of "CHICKASAW," "OKLAHOMA," "2011" and "E PLURIBUS UNUM."
