The War in the Pacific National Historical Park quarter is the third in 2019 and 48th overall in the America the Beautiful Quarters Program and has been minted at the United States Mint at Philadelphia and has never been placed into circulation.
The westernmost of all the National Park Service sites, War in the Pacific National Historical Park was established in 1978 to commemorate the bravery, courage, and sacrifice of those participating in the campaigns of the Pacific Theatre of World War II. The park also conserves and interprets a variety of amazing resources found on the Island of Guam. War in the Pacific National Historical Park has the highest biological diversity of any national park, with both underwater and land areas. Snorkelling, fishing, and exploring coral reefs are among the popular recreational activities its visitors enjoy.
The reverse design portrays American forces coming ashore at Asan Bay, strengthening the number of troops on the island in the fight for Guam and its eventual liberation.
