The reverse of the Arches National Park quarter depicts Delicate Arch, a 65–foot freestanding natural arch. It is a widely recognizable landmark in Utah and the most famous arch found in the park. The quarters in the bags and two–roll sets were struck on the main production floors of the United States Mint facilities at Denver and Philadelphia. The quarters in the single roll were struck at the United States Mint at San Francisco, while the three–roll set contains quarters from all three facilities. Unlike the “P” and “D” mint mark quarters, those with the “S” mint mark will not be released into circulation.
The special numismatic wrapping for the coin rolls displays the name of the national park or site and state abbreviation; “$10,” the face value of its contents; and “P,” “D.” or “S” for the mint of origin. The canvas bags have a tag displays the name of the national park or site and state abbreviation; “$25,” the face value of its contents; and the mint of origin.
