Featured on the reverse of the coin will be a design emblematic of Chickasaw National Recreation Area which is located in Oklahoma. The area was originally established as Sulphur Springs Reservation in 1902 from 640 acres of land sold to the national government by the Chickasaw Indian Nation.

Along with a series of circulating quarter dollars, these bullion coins were authorized by the America’s Beautiful National Parks Quarter Dollar Coin Act of 2008. Both series of coins are to feature identical designs with reverses emblematic of the honored site.
