Quarters in the set representing Lowell National Historical Park have a reverse (tails) design depicting a mill girl 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. Inscriptions are “LOWELL,” “MASSACHUSETTS” 2019,” and “E PLURIBUS UNUM.”

The obverse (heads) of the coins depicts the 1932 portrait of George Washington by John Flanagan, which has been restored to bring out subtle details and the beauty of the original model. Inscriptions are “UNITED STATES OF AMERICA,” “LIBERTY,” “IN GOD WE TRUST,” and “QUARTER DOLLAR.”

All three coins are mounted on a durable plastic card with an image of Lowell National Historical Park. The Certificate of Authenticity is printed on the back of the card.
