Human habitation in the Denali Region extends to more than 11,000 years before the present, with documented sites just outside park boundaries dated to more than 8,000 years before the present. The America the Beautiful quarters (sometimes abbreviated ATB quarters) were a series of 56 25-cent pieces (quarters) issued by the United States Mint, which began in 2010 and lasted until 2021.
