Located in Northern California’s Sierra Nevada mountain range, Yosemite National Park is one of the crown jewels in the National Parks System. Over 3.5 million visitors annually roam the park’s valleys and mountains, wonder at the grandeur of famed climbing destinations like El Capitan and Half Dome or gaze at the majestic beauty of Yellowstone Falls. Covering over 1,200 square miles, Yosemite stands as a true symbol of the American West.
Describing the park, naturalist John Muir said, “No temple made with hands can compare with Yosemite.”
The reverse shows the iconic half dome and the date the park was established in 1890. The reverse shows one of the park’s most influential stewards and proponents, John Muir. 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.
