2020 National Park of American Samoa quarter released

The new National Park of American Samoa quarter, 51st in the series and first of five to debut in 2020, is in circulation as of February 3rd.

U.S. Mint Artistic Infusion Program artist Richard Masters designed and Mint Medallic Artist Phebe Hemphill sculpted the National Park of American Samoa coin, which features a Samoan fruit bat mother hanging in a tree with her pup on the reverse. Masters’ design is intended to promote awareness to the species’ threatened status due to habitat loss and hunting. The obverse features the 1932 portrait of George Washington designed by John Flanagan.

The other 2020 quarters also honor America’s most popular national parks: Weir Farm National Historic Site in Wilton, CT; Salt River Bay National Historical Park and Ecological Preserve in Saint Croix, U.S. Virgin Islands; Marsh-Billings-Rockefeller National Historical Park in Woodstock, VT, and the Tallgrass Prairie National Preserve based in Strong City, KS.

This detailed National Park of American Samoa quarter can be nicely paired with the 2009 Statehood quarter for American Samoa. Order today.
