National Park of American Samoa 2020 Quarter OUT OF STOCK
Uncirculated quarter purchased directly from the mint.
The National Park of American Samoa’s waters feature pristine Indo-Pacific coral reefs vibrant with a variety of fish species, sharks, and sea turtles. The park protects hundreds of plant species in five distinct rain forest communities: lowland, montane, coast, ridge, and cloud.
The reverse (tails) design depicts a Samoan fruit bat mother hanging in a tree with her pup. The image evokes the remarkable care and energy this species puts into its offspring. The design is intended to promote awareness of the species’ threatened status because of habitat loss and commercial hunting. The National Park of American Samoa is the only national park the Samoan fruit bat calls home.
