2018 Apostle Islands National Lakeshore Quarter
Forty-Second in the America the Beautiful Quarters Collections


Apostle Islands National Lakeshore – known as the “Jewels of Lake Superior” – contains 21 islands and 12 miles of shoreline at the tip of the Bayfield Peninsula in northern Wisconsin. It was established in 1970 to protect “certain significant islands, shoreline, and light stations.” Since the islands are somewhat remote, the only way to travel through the park and to visit different islands is by kayak or other boat.

Several of the islands, such as Sand Island, Devils Island, and Raspberry Island, feature lighthouses, and together the eight lighthouses are the most in any single National Park Service property. The lighthouses were once key to guiding ships through Lake Superior’s rough and unpredictable waters.

In addition to lighthouses, the islands are renowned for long stretches of sand beaches, isolated coves, and spectacular sea caves. Recreational activities include fishing for trout and salmon; hunting for white-tail deer, grouse, and small game; scuba diving in the clear waters to explore fascinating rock formations and numerous shipwrecks; and camping and hiking. The islands are also part of the Great Lakes flyway for migratory birds, so they attract bird-watchers throughout the year to view birds ranging from bald eagles to falcons and herons.

The design of the Apostle Islands National Lakeshore Quarter depicts three of the park’s most famous sights and activities. A kayaker in the foreground indicates the most popular way to travel around the park, while the background shows sea caves at Devils Island and the Devils Island lighthouse.


This is a 4-piece set honoring the State of Wisconsin. This set includes an Uncirculated Philadelphia and Denver Wisconsin Series I State Quarter (issued in 2004) as well as an Uncirculated Philadelphia & Denver Series II Apostle Islands National Lakeshore (issued in 2018).
