USA 25-CENTS (KM523) Dall Sheep
In 2010, the US Mint launched the "America the Beautiful" quarters program. Five quarters will be issued each year through 2020 (and one in 2021), for a total of 56 different designs. Each quarter will depict a national park or site from each of the 50 states, the federal district, and each territory).
Dall sheep were the impetus for the original formation of Denali National Park and Preserve in 1917. In the background is Denali, the highest mountain in North America. Denali was formerly known (to some) as Mount McKinley.
