In 2018 the America the Beautiful series of quarters will feature Pictured Rocks National Lakeshore in Michigan’s Upper Peninsula. Out of a series of design finalists, this image has been selected as the one that will appear on the quarter.

The image depicts a white pine tree at Chapel Rock. The tree is unique in that is sits atop the rock, separated a few feet from the mainland but its root system bridges back to the shoreline keeping the tree alive.

2018 America the Beautiful Quarters

Along with Michigan’s Pictured Rocks quarters, which is set to be released in February, new quarters next year will feature the Apostle Islands National Lakeshore in Wisconsin, Minnesota’s Voyagers National Park as well as NPS sites in Gerogia and Rhode Island.
