Originally created as Mount McKinley National Park on February 26, 1917, Denali is named after the highest mountain in North America which is also found within the parks boundaries. The name itself has been the source of some controversy for years as it has been called "Denali" for centuries by the Native Americans of the region. It was given the name McKinley in the late 1800′s by a prospector. Since then, there has been almost a constant debate as to what to call the mountain (and consequently the park).

The US Mint will place 100 circulation quality Denali Quarters in each bag. Buyers will have the choice of whether those quarters come from the US Mint’s facility in Denver or the US Mint’s facility in Philadelphia.
