When completed in 2021, a total of fifty-six new quarters will have been created in the program which debuted in 2010. Each coin in the series features a unique reverse design emblematic of the selected national site. In this instance, the reverse will show a portion of Chickasaw National Recreation Area. Chickasaw was established as Sulphur Springs Reservation in 1902 from 640 acres purchased from the Chickasaw Indian Nation. The partially forested hills of the area are all located in central Oklahoma.

Included in the set is one roll containing 40 circulation quality quarters struck at the US Mint’s facility in Denver and 40 struck in Philadelphia.
