Each bag contains 100 circulation quality quarters with reverse designs emblematic of the Tallgrass Prairie National Preserve, which is located in the state of Kansas. Tallgrasses once covered an estimated 400,00 square miles of North America, but less than 4% of that total remains today as most of it has been plowed under to allow for farming. The national preserve protects 10,894 acres of the ecosystem and was established on November 12, 1996.

A special label sewn into each bag indicates the specific contents of Tallgrass Prairie National Preserve Quarters to be found within.
