Bombay Hook is located in the state of Delaware and consists of a relatively small 15,978 acres. However, within that small area are hundreds of species of plant and animal life. In fact, over 350 different species of birds have been spotted within the refuge boundaries at one time or another. The refuge was established on March 16, 1937 after the land was purchased from local land-owners using funds raised from the Federal Duck Stamp Program.

Two rolls will be included in the set. One roll will contain 40 circulation quality quarters from the US Mint’s facility in Philadelphia and one roll will contain 40 circulation quality quarters from the US Mint’s facility in Denver.
