The Quarter is Coming! The Quarter is Coming!
February 10, 2015
Soon you will be able to carry a piece of the homesteading story in your pocket! After lots of planning and excitement, the America the Beautiful quarter featuring Homestead National Monument of America is almost here. The quarter is currently in production, with about 30 million being minted a day. The final quarter design, created by U.S. Mint artist Ron Sanders, can be seen below and is a representation of the things homesteaders needed to survive: food, housing, and water.
Quarter Launch Event and Coin Exchange
The quarter will be released on February 10, 2015. We invite you to join us on that day at 10 a.m. for a launch celebration at Beatrice High School. This big event will include speakers, music, a coin pour, and coin exchange. The coin exchange will begin immediately following the quarter launch event, with a one roll ($10) minimum and 10 roll ($100) maximum.
