WASHINGTON – The United States Mint will offer products featuring the America the Beautiful Quarters® Program coin honoring Effigy Mounds National Monument in Iowa starting on February 6 at noon Eastern Time (ET).
The coin’s reverse (tails) design depicts an aerial view of mounds in the Marching Bear Group. Inscriptions are “EFFIGY MOUNDS,” “IOWA,” “2017,” and “E PLURIBUS UNUM.” Its obverse (heads) design features the 1932 portrait of George Washington by John Flanagan.

Coins in the rolls and bags are struck on the main production floors at the Philadelphia, Denver, and San Francisco Mint facilities. The three-roll set contains coins from all three facilities.
