Description of obverse and reverse Obverse: features a 1932 portrait of George Washington by John Flanagan, restored to bring out subtle details and the beauty of the original model. Inscriptions are “UNITED STATES OF AMERICA, LIBERTY, IN GOD WE TRUST” and “QUARTER DOLLAR”. The fineness and weight are edge-incused on the coins. Reverse: depicts a classic view of the northeast slope of Mount Reynolds towering in the distance, while a mountain goat climbs over the rocky slopes of the park’s high country. Inscriptions include “GLACIER, MONTANA, 2011” and “E PLURIBUS UNUM”.
A brief annotation The Glacier National Park quarter, minted in 2011, is the 7th issued overall in the America the Beautiful Quarters Program. Montana’s Glacier National Park encompasses more than one million acres of land, 300 lakes, more than one thousand species of plants, and hundreds of species of animals, yet the United States Mint was able to depict it on the diminutive canvas of a quarter. Glacier National Park in Montana was inhabited and loved by the Native Americans long before any European settlers arrived there.
