The park shows the importance of Lowell in the Industrial Revolution. The coin design shows a mill girl, who would have earned cash wages and lived in supervised, company-owned boarding houses. She is working at a power loom with its prominent circular bobbin battery. A view of Lowell, including the Boott Mill clock tower, is seen through the window.

The San Antonio Missions were among the largest concentrations of Spanish missions in North America, established in the 1700s, and helped create the foundation for the City of San Antonio, TX.

The reverse shows elements of the Spanish Colonial Real coin to pay tribute to the missions. Within the quadrants are symbols of the missions: wheat symbolizes farming; the arches and bell symbolize community; a lion represents Spanish cultural heritage; and a symbol of the San Antonio River represents irrigation methods and life-sustaining resources.

The Frank Church River of No Return Wilderness in Idaho is made up of rugged mountains, deep canyons, and wild whitewater rivers, including the Main Salmon River and Middle Fork of the Salmon River. The name is in honor of late U.S. Senator Frank Church, who played a leading role in its preservation.

The coin shows a piloted drift boat on the rushing river encompassed by the trees and rock formations of the wilderness.
