The reverse is separated into four quadrants by a cross, where each quadrant houses a different symbol. These symbols are: a lion which is a nod to Spanish heritage and culture and often seen on the Real coin; water waves symbolizing life, growth, and irrigation; wheat representing farming; and bells and arches representing community. Other details of the reverse include the inscriptions "SAN ANTONIO MISSIONS," “TEXAS,” “2019” and “E PLURIBUS UNUM.”
The National Park in San Antonio Texas includes Mission San Jose, Mission Espada, Mission Concepcion, and Mission San Juan. The park does not include the most famous mission, the Alamo, though it is connected by both the Riverwalk Trail and Mission Trail (can be driven). There is also the Espada Aqueduct, a series of irrigation ditches that brought water to the mission crops from the San Antonio River. Inside the missions you'll find churches, granaries, friaries, farm fields, and more including old fresco paintings and sculptures. There is a one way trail (Riverwalk) connecting all the missions that can be hiked or biked on your own, but guided tours are also available.
