Located in western Washington, Mount Rainier National Park is the country’s fifth oldest park and home to the park’s namesake, the imposing Mt. Rainier. The park offers an array of dazzling sights from its renowned display of wildflowers in the summer months to its rugged, snow-capped peaks that entice mountain climbers from around the globe to test their skill.

The medallion’s obverse shows the grand peak of Mt. Rainier and the date the park was established in 1899. The reverse shows a mountain climber ascending the mountain’s steep slopes. Minted in deep relief using a special “splash minting” process, this coin is struck in a brass alloy and given a beautiful lacquered finished.
Each coin measures 1 1/2 inch (38.1mm) in diameter.
