Today, December 4, 2012, the United States Mint will begin sales of the America the Beautiful Quarters Three-Coin Set featuring Denali National Park and Preserve.
The 2012 Denali National Park and Preserve Quarter features the image of a Dall sheep with Mount McKinley rising in the background. This was designed by Susan Gamble and engraved by Jim Licaretz. The obverse of the coin features the 1932 portrait of George Washington designed by John Flanagan.
