2010 Grand Canyon National Park, Wyoming. P or D Mint Singles - Uncirculated Condition.
This new reverse design, the fourth in the National Park series shows a view of the granaries above the Nankoweap Delta in Marble Canyon near the Colorado River. Granaries were used for storing food and seeds by Native Americans as far back as 1500 years ago.
First afforded Federal protection in 1893 as a Forest Reserve and later as a National Monument, Grand Canyon did not achieve National Park status until 1919, three years after the creation of the National Park Service. Today, Grand Canyon National Park receives about five million visitors each year - a far cry from the 44,173 visitors the park received in 1919.
All our Grand Canyon Quarter singles are from original rolls.
