Found on Lowell National Historical Park quarter reverses (tails side) is a design emblematic of the national site.

"The reverse (tails) design honors Lowell’s role in the Industrial Revolution," states the U.S. Mint in its description of the imagery found on the coin. "The design depicts 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."

Reverse inscriptions read: "LOWELL," "MASSACHUSETTS," "2019," and "E PLURIBUS UNUM." The design is the work of Joel Iskowitz with Phebe Hemphill sculpting it.
