Acadia was initially established in 1919 as Lafayette National Park with the generous help of philanthropist John D. Rockefeller, Jr. who financed many of the projects within the park’s boundaries. The park was renamed Acadia in 1929 and today consists of 47,390 acres with much of that on several islands.

The Mint will package 100 circulation quality Acadia quarters in a bag from either its facility in Philadelphia or its facility in Denver. Buyers will then have the choice of which strikes they would prefer.
