America’s Beautiful National Parks Quarter Dollar Coins

After the 50 States Quarters Program, The US Mint released a new set of quarters to represent the National Parks of the United States of America. 56 different quarters will be released from 2010 up until 2021. The new act that authorized the minting of the new quarters is the America’s Beautiful National Parks Quarter Dollar Coin Act of 2008.

The act was introduced by Representative Mike Castle in 2008. He was also the one who led the 50 States Quarter Program. The act became the Public Law 110-456  signed by President Bush on the 23rd of December, 2008.

The US Mint officially named the program as America the Beautiful Quarters® Program. Public Law 110-456 dictates the guidelines listed below.

  •         The Secretary of the Treasury has the authority to extend the new program an additional 11 years
  •         Exact duplicates of all the America the Beautiful Quarters will be made in .999 fine silver
  •         The new quarters will weigh 5.0 ounces and have a diameter of 3.0 inches

The design of America’s Beautiful National Parks Quarter will have the same obverse as 50 States Quarter and the Washington D.C. and U.S. Territories Quarters.

The head of the coin will feature a profile bust of the late President George Washington facing left. The inscriptions included in the obverse are the UNITED STATES OF AMERICA, LIBERTY, IN GOD WE TRUST and QUARTER DOLLAR. William Cousins made slight modifications for the obverse.

For the reverse, the selection of the design is quite a tedious one. Much like the Washington D.C. and U.S. Territories Quarters, a federal entity that handles the management and conservation of each national site will have a liaison to act as its representative. The said liaison will identify source materials that the US Mint will use to produce up to five candidates per design. These designs will be used for a year’s America’s Beautiful National Parks Quarter.

The designs will then be submitted to the Secretary of the Interior, Commission of Fine Arts (CFA), chief executive of the host jurisdiction (State/District of Columbia/Territory) and Citizens Coinage Advisory Committee (CCAC). For the final design, the US Mint will make necessary changes before the final designs are submitted to the Secretary of the Treasury.
