Great Basin National Park was only established in 1986, but a portion of the park can trace its federal status back to 1922. Lehman Caves National Monument was created on January 24, 1922. However, today the caves are only a small area of the newer national park which also includes groves of ancient bristlecone pines as well as other terrain ideal for many recreational opportunities.

The Mint wraps each roll in its own special Mint wrapping. Indicated on the wrapping is the face value of the roll ($10), the specific strike contained within (Great Basin National Park Quarters) and the initial of the Mint responsible for striking the coins inside (D for Denver or P for Philadelphia).
