The reverse coin design depicts a snowy egret posing on a branch on the edge of a salt marsh, ready for flight. Design
candidates were in consultation with representatives of Cumberland Island National Seashore.
Inscriptions are CUMBERLAND ISLAND, GEORGIA, 2018, and E PLURIBUS UNUM.
Cumberland Island National Seashore in Georgia was established in 1972 to maintain the primitive, undeveloped
character of one of the largest and most ecologically diverse barrier islands on the Atlantic coast. There are
almost 18 miles of pristine beach open to the public for recreational activities like swimming and walking.
The island is also known to have one of the largest oak maritime forests remaining in the U.S., providing an
unparalleled visitor experience.
