2015 U.S. Mint America the Beautiful Bombay Hook Three-Coin Set – Philadelphia, Denver, and San Francisco
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 3-coin set depicts the land Native Americans called “Canaresse” (for “at the thickets”) and by the Dutch as “Bompies Hoeck” (“little tree point”).
The set contains three uncirculated Bombay Hook National Wildlife Refuge quarters - one each from the U.S. Mints in Philadelphia, Denver, and San Francisco. Each coin comes packaged in a clear plastic coin flip.
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.
