Each bag will contain 100 circulation quality quarters with a reverse design emblematic of the Frank Church River of No Return Wilderness which is located in the state of Idaho. Created by Congress on January 1, 1980, the wilderness takes its name from two sources. First, from former United States Senator Frank Church who was instrumental in its creation. Second, the Salmon River which runs through the wilderness was given the "No Return" nickname by early settlers for its fast current which makes upstream travel hazardous.

Buyers will have the choice of whether they would like 100 circulation quality quarters from the US Mint’s facility in Denver or the US Mint’s facility in Philadelphia to be included in their bag.
