The coins will feature reverse designs emblematic of Glacier National Park on their reverse. This national park came under federal control in 1897 when it was designated a national forest preserve. It attained the status of National Park in 1910.

The 80 coins in the set will be divided into two rolls, with one roll containing 40 circulation quality strikes from the US Mint’s facility in Denver and one roll containing 40 circulation quality strikes from the Mint’s facility in Philadelphia. Each roll is wrapped in special Mint wrapping indicating the rolls face value of $10, the specific strike contained within (Glacier National Park) and the mint of origin (‘P’ for Philadelphia and ‘D’ for Denver).
