The Shenandoah Quarters mark the second of the America the Beautiful Quarters Program to be issued in 2014 and the twenty-second in the program overall. Shown on the reverse is a design by United States Mint Sculptor-Engraver Phebe Hemphill which depicts a day hiker taking in the view from Little Stony Man summit. Inscriptions on the reverse include SHENANDOAH, VIRGINIA, 2014, and E PLURIBUS UNUM.
All America the Beautiful Quarters showcase the same obverse portrait of George Washington. The image was first seen on 1932 circulating quarter dollars and was originally designed by John Flanagan. Obverse inscriptions include UNITED STATES OF AMERICA, LIBERTY, IN GOD WE TRUST, and QUARTER DOLLAR.
