These coins are authorized by the America’s Beautiful National Parks Quarter Dollar Coin Act of 2008 along with a sister series of circulating quarters. Both programs honor sites of national interest with identical designs found on the quarter dollars and these silver bullion coins. One site was chosen from each state, the District of Columbia and the five territories of the United States for a total of fifty-six new issues.

This specific coin honors Glacier National Park, which is located in Montana. The reverse design of the strike will feature a design emblematic of the National Park while the obverse will feature a portrait of George Washington, first President of the United States.
