2020 D American Samoa USA National Parks Quarter BU (MS-63)

National Park of American Samoa is located some 2,600 miles southwest of Hawaii and is one of the most remote in the U.S. National Park System. The site includes sections of three islands–Tutuila, Ta'u, and Ofu. Almost all of the land area of these volcanic islands–from the mountaintops to the coast–is tropical rainforest. The park's area totals 13,500 acres, 4,000 of which are underwater.

The obverse (heads) design features the familiar image of George Washington by John Flanagan, used on the quarter since 1932. It has been restored to bring out subtle details and the beauty of the original.

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 that this species puts into their offspring. The design is intended to promote awareness to the species' threatened status due to habitat loss and commercial hunting. The National Park of American Samoa is the only park in the United States that is home to the Samoan fruit bat.
