The reverse, designed by U.S. Mint Artistic Infusion Program artist Chris Costello and sculptured by U.S. Mint Medallic Sculptor Jim Licaretz depicts a Latina Folklórico dancer and the National Park Service logo, representing the multi-faceted cultural experience found in America’s national parks.

U.S. Mint AIP artist Barbara Fox designed the copper-nickel clad half dollar obverse sculptured by U.S. Mint Medallic Sculptor Michael Gaudioso. The design highlights a hiker discovering the majesty of the wilderness and a small child discovering a frog hiding in ferns, celebrating the diversity and breadth of the National Park Service.

U.S. Mint AIP artist Thomas Hipschen designed the half dollar reverse, which was sculptured by U.S. Mint Sculptor-Engraver Charles L. Vickers. The design features a rendition of the National Park Service logo.
