El Yunque National Forest Quarter Collection
Many of the nation's collectors and American history enthusiasts seek the added value of a pristine uncirculated quarter from each mint. As circulated quarters continue to be difficult to find, these collections will become a premium item. These collections feature both a P and D minted quarter affixed to a 5"x5" trifold card packed with interesting information, fascinating history and vibrant images. These collections make the entire series fit seamlessly together creating a comprehensive and valuable treasure for families and collectors alike. The El Yunque National Forest Quarter’s reverse shows a Coqui tree frog sitting on a leaf and a Puerto Rican parrot (highly endangered) behind an epiphyte plant with tropical flora in the background. El Yunque National Forest was established as a national site on January 17, 1903 and is the first quarter of 2012. The quarter is part of the U.S. Mint's America the Beautiful Quarters Program TM.
