Acadia ATB Quarter

Acadia America the Beautiful Quarter (US Mint image)

Acadia America the Beautiful Quarter

The 2012 Acadia America the Beautiful Quarter contains a reverse design emblematic of Acadia National Park located in the state of Maine. This strike marks the third of five 2012-dated releases of the US Mint's America the Beautiful Quarters® Program as well as the thirteenth in the series overall.

Scheduled to be issued in 2012 as part of the series along with the Acadia America the Beautiful Quarter are four other strikes - the El Yunque Quarter, the Chaco Culture Quarter, the Hawaii Volcanoes Quarter and the Denali Quarter. A total of fifty-six will be issued in the series overall which debuted in 2010 and is scheduled to run until 2021.

Each coin of the series honors a different site of national interest with one site chosen from each state as well as the District of Columbia and the five US territories. The sites are honored in the order in which they came under the direct control of the federal government.

Acadia National Park was created as Lafayette National Park in 1919. Ten years later it was renamed Acadia and today encompasses an area of over 45,000 acres.

Along with these quarters, the US Mint will also issue the Acadia ATB 5 Oz Silver Coins in 2012 to honor the national park. As implied by the name, these coins are struck from five ounces of silver. They also feature the same basic obverse and reverse imagery as shown on the associated quarter dollar.

Acadia America the Beautiful Quarter Design

Obverse design: Like all other America the Beautiful related coins, the obverse of the Acadia Quarter contains a portrait of George Washington, as designed by John Flanagan. The portrait was originally completed by Flanagan for use on the 1932 circulating quarter dollar. Obverse inscriptions include UNITED STATES OF AMERICA, QUARTER DOLLAR, LIBERTY, IN GOD WE TRUST and the mintmark.

Reverse design: The reverse of the 2012 Acadia America the Beautiful Quarter contains the design emblematic of the national park which is described by the US Mint with this:

"The reverse of the third quarter of 2012 depicts a view of the Bass Harbor Head Lighthouse and Acadia's rough coastline.  Inscriptions are ACADIA, MAINE, 2012 and E PLURIBUS UNUM.  The reverse was designed by AIP Associate Designer Barbara Fox and sculpted by United States Mint Sculptor-Engraver Joseph Menna."
