I came across an article on Silver Coins Today that illustrates the design candidates (some 44 in all) for the U.S. Mint's 2015 America the Beautiful coin program. Below I've selected two designs for each of the sites to be honored. See the original article for the rest.
For 2015, the five national sites to be honored include:
Homestead National Monument of America in Nebraska
Kisatchie National Forest in Louisiana
Blue Ridge Parkway in North Carolina
Bombay Hook National Wildlife Refuge in Delaware
Saratoga National Historical Park in New York
The Secretary of the Treasury will choose the final five designs. Before that can happen, the design candidates will be sent for review and comment to the chief executive of the site’s jurisdiction (State/District of Columbia/Territory), the Commission of Fine Arts (CFA), and the Citizens Coinage Advisory Committee (CCAC). Their comments will be taken into consideration before Mint official’s make a final recommendation and requesting the Secretary’s decision.
