Owner Comments:

The Chickasaw National Recreation Area Quarter was released on November 14, 2011 as the tenth coin in the America the Beautiful Quarters Program.

The Chickasaw National Recreation Area, located in Oklahoma, was officially established on July 1, 1902, but named Sulphur Springs Reservation. The original 640 acres of the area was purchased from the Chickasaw Indian Nation and subsequently added on through the years. On June 29, 1906, Congress redesignated Sulphur Springs to become the Platt National Park, a title which it would retain for seventy years. Finally, in 1976, Congress combined Platt with nearby Arbuckle Recreation Area and renamed it to its current designation of Chickasaw National Recreation Area.

The quarter’s reverse features the Lincoln Bridge, built of limestone and dedicated in 1909 to celebrate the centennial of Abraham Lincoln's birth. In addition to the bridge, the reverse contains a flock of 6 ducks flying overhead.
