2016 Theodore Roosevelt National Park Park Quarter
Thirty-Fourth in the America the Beautiful Quarters Collection

Theodore Roosevelt National Park in North Dakota is featured on the fourth America the Beautiful Quarter issued in 2016. It is also the 34th coin in the overall collection. Theodore Roosevelt National Park in the Badlands of western North Dakota was established in 1946 as a tribute to President Theodore Roosevelt, who owned the Maltese Cross Cabin and the Elkhorn Ranch that are now within the park.

Roosevelt first visited the Badlands in 1883 and he often returned to enjoy the solitude, work on his ranch, and appreciate the area’s natural beauty. His experiences in North Dakota contributed to his later environmental efforts as President. During his Presidency from 1901 to 1909, he created the National Forest Service and established five National Parks and numerous wildlife preserves. In total, he set aside about 230 million acres of public land.

The park, which is surrounded by the Little Missouri National Grassland, consists of three separate areas: the North and South Units and Elkhorn Ranch, which are connected by the Little Missouri River. The wild expanses are renowned as a haven for wildlife, particularly buffalo, elk, and bighorn sheep.

The reverse of the 2016 Theodore Roosevelt National Park Quarter depicts Theodore Roosevelt on horseback surveying the landscape near his Elkhorn Ranch. The Little Missouri River, which flowed through his land, is in the background.

This is for a San Francisco Proof Quarter in a capsule.
