Located in south-central Oklahoma, Platt National Park, now known as the Chickasaw National Recreation Area, is surrounded by the rolling hills and flat lands that cover the plains of the great Midwest. Rooted in the history of the Chickasaw people, the area and park is the first and only national park area in the U.S. established at the request of an Indian tribe. The park protects the unique freshwater and mineral springs of the area as well as American wildlife such as Bison, armadillo, and the fox squirrel.
The medallion’s obverse shows a bison and the date the park was established in 1906. The reverse displays one the original stewards of the land, a Chickasaw Indian. Minted in deep relief using a special "splash minting" process, this coin is struck in a brass alloy and given a beautiful lacquered finished.
