The 25th coin out in the America the Beautiful series is the Florida Everglades National Park. It became a park on December 6th, 1947. It covers over 1.5 million acres. Don’t mistake the big bird on the back for a Blue Heron. It is an Anhinga. Yup, I didn’t know what an Anhinga was either without looking it up!  The other bird is a Roseate Spoonbill. Overall it is a very nice looking coin. There have been some in the series that were hard to see, but this one is clear.
