The design features a frontiersman gazing across the mountains to the West. Many pioneers used Cumberland Gap on their journey into the western frontiers of Kentucky and Tennessee. Inscriptions are "CUMBERLAND GAP," "KENTUCKY," "2016," "E PLURIBUS UNUM," and "FIRST DOORWAY TO THE WEST." The reverse was designed by AIP artist Barbara Fox and will be sculpted by United States Mint Sculptor-Engraver Joseph Menna.
