Voyageurs National Park Quarter

Coin Information

Minnesota’s Voyageurs National Park was established in 1971 “to preserve . . . the outstanding scenery, geological conditions, and waterway system” inherent to the park, which protects 218,054 acres, including 84,000 acres of water. It consists of miles of undeveloped shoreline, with hundreds of islands and numerous lakes. The combination of rocky shorelines, southern boreal and northern hardwood forests, and open water create a distinct home for bald eagles, loons, black bears, moose, and wolves.
