2015 U.S. Mint America the Beautiful Bombay Hook National Wildlife Refuge Uncirculated Quarter - P

The twenty-ninth coin in the U.S. Mint’s popular America the Beautiful Quarters series, this 2015 America the Beautiful Bombay Hook National Wildlife Refuge uncirculated quarter depicts the land Native Americans called “Canaresse” (for “at the thickets”) and by the Dutch as “Bompies Hoeck” (“little tree point”).

An ideal gift item for fans of our national parks – especially Bombay Hook National Wildlife Refuge – as well as for beginning coin collectors, this beautiful uncirculated quarter was minted at the Philadelphia U.S. Mint.

In all, there will be up to 56 specially designed numismatic offerings between 2010 and 2021.

Established as a national site in 1937, Bombay Hook National Wildlife Refuge serves to shelter and provide a breeding ground for migratory and wintering waterfowl. Protecting wildlife of all kinds, the refuge’s marsh grasses, fish, and more provide sustenance for geese, migrating ducks, shorebirds, and neo-tropical songbirds on their journey between Canada and the Gulf of Mexico. The birds can rest in Bombay Hook’s 16,000 acres of freshwater pools and swamps, and its unaltered tidal salt marsh. The refuge also contains the Allee House, a pre-Revolutionary War farmhouse on the National Register of Historic Places. Depicting a great blue heron and a great egret, the image was designed by Joel Iskowitz and sculpted by Phebe Hemphill.

This coin comes packaged in a clear plastic coin flip.
