NPS Outer Banks Group Now Accepts Presidential $1 Coins
Contact: Outer Banks Group, 252-473-2111
The Presidential $1 Coin Act authorized the creation of new dollar coins commemorating former Presidents of the United States and established guidance for the use of those coins in government business operations. In compliance with this Act, the National Park Service Outer Banks Group units are now able to accept and dispense the Presidential $1 Coins in their business operations. Visitors to Cape Hatteras National Seashore, Fort Raleigh National Historic Site, and Wright Brothers National Memorial have the option to use or receive these coins as change at all park campgrounds, fee booths, visitor centers, concession operations, and vending machines.
Did You Know?
A piece of sea whip that washes up on the beach at Cape Hatteras National Seashore is not a plant, but the skeleton of a whole colony of animals. A tiny animal lived in each hole on the yellow, orange or purple stems. It had a mouth, a stomach and eight tentacles to catch food.
