The reverse coin design depicts a common loon with a rock cliff in the background. Design candidates were in
consultation with representatives of Voyageurs National Park. Inscriptions are VOYAGEURS, MINNESOTA, 2018, and E PLURIBUS UNUM.
Minnesota’s Voyageurs National Park was established in 1971 to preserve the outstanding scenery, geological
conditions, and waterway system inherent to the park, which protects 218,054 acres, including 84,000 acres of water.
It consists of miles of undeveloped shoreline, with hundreds of islands and numerous lakes. The combination of rocky
shorelines, southern boreal and northern hardwood forests, and open water create a distinct home for bald eagles,
loons, black bears, moose, and wolves.
