Officially established in 1934, the Great Smoky Mountains National Park is located in the state of Tennessee. Long before becoming a national park, the area was the home of many Native Americans followed by European settlers. Those visiting today will be offered a historic look into the lives of some of those who previously called the area home as well as pristine scenery and wildlife.

The coins honoring the national park are to be struck from five ounces of .999 fine silver to a diameter of three inches. The law authorizing them dictates that their obverse and reverse designs be identical to those found on the US Mint’s America the Beautiful Quarters® Program, but have an edge inscription stating their weight and fineness.
