Cumberland Gap National Historical Park preserves an area of land that is a natural break in the Appalachian Mountain range. That break has been used by man and animals for centuries as a means to easily traverse the Appalachian range. Its strategic location also resulted in fortifications to the area during the American Civil, remnants of which can still be seen today.

The US Mint will wrap each roll in special Mint wrapping indicating which facility the coins contained within were struck at.
