The Blue Ridge Parkway was originally established on June 30, 1936 but took 52 years to complete owing to its location along the Blue Ridge Mountains as well as to other concerns. Original construction began with the aid of various public works agencies established in the 1930′s to help those without work during the Great Depression. Land alongside the 469 Parkway is maintained by the National Park Service and is acknowledged to be the most visited unit of that service in the United States.

Buyer’s will have the choice of a bag containing 100 circulation quality strikes from the US Mint’s facility in Philadelphia or a bag containing strikes from the US Mint’s facility in Denver.
