From 2010-2020, the U.S. Mint will be issuing 56 quarter-dollar coins featuring designs depicting national parks and other national sites as part of the America the Beautiful Quarters Program. The U.S Mint chose Arches National Park as one of the honored sites and after several design considerations, Delicate Arch was chosen as the image.
The 2014 coins are being released in the following order:
- Great Smokey Mountains
- Shenandoah National Park
- Arches National Park
- Great Sand Dunes National Park
- Everglades National Park
The ceremony will be held at 9:00 a.m. on Friday, June 6th in the Arches Visitor Center parking lot. U.S. Mint Deputy Director Richard Peterson and Lt. Governor Spencer Cox will join Superintendent Kate Cannon for the presentation.
Zions National Bank will provide two teller stations where the public can "exchange" (not sell) quarters for money. The minimum exchange is $10 for one roll of quarters and the maximum is $100 for 10 rolls of quarters.
Access to Arches Visitor Center will be limited from 8:00 a.m. until approximately noon that day.
