New Yellowstone Quarter To Be Released Next Summer
The quarter will be released as part of the America the Beautiful Quarters Program.
The program is designed to celebrate the nation’s legacy of conservation. It directs the Mint to strike and issue 56 new quarters, each showcasing one national park or other federally protected area in each state, the District of Columbia, and American territory.
The quarters will be issued by the date the areas first came under federal protection. Starting next April, a new quarter will be released approximately every ten weeks. The quarter featuring Yellowstone will be the second in the series released.
In addition to the coins for circulation, the Mint will produce collectable items including proof sets, silver proof sets, a five ounce silver bullion coin, coin bags, and coin rolls for each quarter.
