Each Mount Rushmore Quarter included in the set honors the national memorial which is located in the Black Hills of South Dakota. Originally authorized by Congress on March 3, 1925, Rushmore would take years before the sculptures would reach the state we seem them in today. The mountain contains the faces of four past Presidents of the United States, George Washington, Thomas Jefferson, Abraham Lincoln and Theodore Roosevelt. The sculptor, Gutzon Borglum chose those men for their roles in expanding and preserving the nation.

The Mint will wrap each roll in its own special Mint wrapping. Indicated on the side of the wrapping will be the rolls face value of $10 along with the specific strike contained within (Mount Rushmore National Memorial Quarters). Also shown will be the initial of the US Mint facility responsible for striking the coins contained within (P for Philadelphia and D for Denver).
