2014 Great Sand Dunes, Colorado. P Or D Mint Quarter Singles - Uncirculated Condition - The Fourth America The Beautiful Release of 2014!
The Great Sand Dunes National Park and Preserve in Colorado was signed into National Monument status by President Herbert Hoover in 1932, then expanded to a National Park and Preserve in 2000-2004. Part of the motivation for turning the park into a National Momument was to preserve the Sand Dunes damaged by the Gold Rush and to protect the water, important to local agriculture. The park is made up 149,137 acres of high peaks of dessert sand, the Sangre de Cristo and San Juan Mountains, and dozens of streams and creeks. Hundreds of thousands of tourists visit the park each year to see and photograph the dunes as well as enjoy camping and hiking in the park.
The reverse of the Sand Dunes coin depicts a beautiful scene that could be found in the park. A child and his father playing in the sand at a creek bed with the picturesque sand dunes in the background.
Our Great Sand Dunes Quarter Singles are taken from original U.S. Mint rolls and bags and shipped in 2X2 flips. Your choice of P or D mint can be selected above.
