Nebraska's America the Beautiful Quarter
The U.S. Mint is issuing 56 different quarter coins featuring national parks and other national sites in an America the Beautiful Quarter Program recognizing one national park or other federal site from each state and territory. In all, there will be 56 quarters in the series, released between 2010 and 2021. The Homestead National Monument of America quarter will be released in February 2015. The coins’ release dates are based on when the chosen sites were first nationally established; Homestead’s 2015 quarter release reflects its 1936 designation as a national monument. It will be number 26 of the total 56 in the America the Beautiful Quarters Program.
Homestead National Monument of America is honored to have been selected for Nebraska’s quarter by Nebraska Governor Heineman in cooperation with Secretary of the Treasury Timothy Geithner and former Secretary of the Interior Ken Salazar. “U.S. Mint officials made a great choice in adding Homestead National Monument to this new series of quarters,” Gov. Heineman said.
