Found in the awe-inspiring “Big Sky” country of Wyoming, Montana, and Idaho, Yellowstone Park is America’s first National Park. This medallion honors the contributions of trapper and explorer John Colter, who trapped and hunted around the area that would become Yellowstone National Park. A member of the Lewis & Clark expedition, Colter is widely considered the nation’s first “Mountain Man.”
The medallion’s obverse shows Colter, gazing over the remote Yellowstone wilderness. The obverse shows Old Faithful, spouting into the sky. 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.
