The included coins will all feature a reverse design emblematic of Olympic National Park which is located in the state of Washington. The park area itself was first afforded federal protection in 1909 when President Theodore Roosevelt set it aside as a national monument in 1909. President Franklin D. Roosevelt changed its status to a National Park in 1938.

Buyers will have the choice of which Mint facility the 100 coins included in the bag were struck at – the US Mint’s facility in Philadelphia or the US Mint’s facility in Denver.
