Description
 

The Mt. Hood National Park Quarter is the fifth in the America the Beautiful National Park Quarter Series. Beginning in 2010, a national park from each of the 50 states and 6 territories will be honored. Like the State Quarter Program, 5 new releases will be minted each year. The parks honored in 2010 include Hot Springs, Yellowstone, Yosemite, Grand Canyon and Mt. Hood.

The quarter's reverse depicts a view of Mount Hood with Lost Lake in the foreground. Inscriptions are MT HOOD, OREGON, 2010 and E PLURIBUS UNUM.

These "Mini" bags are filled with uncirculated quarters in the amount of $25 (100 quarters) and sealed by the US Mint with a special label or tag. Like the special Government Roll Pairs, these "Mini" bags are collected based on the final Mintage figure that are produced during the 10 week period the US Mint issues the quarter and the popularity of the state and or design.

In December 1997, America's most adventurous coin program became a reality when President Clinton signed legislation authorizing the U.S. Mint to issue the innovative 50 State Quarters collection. Starting in January 1999, each of the 50 states in the Union will be honored on a unique Quarter Dollar commemorative coin. Five states will be featured each year, based on the order in which they ratified the Constitution or became states. Due to the aggressive minting schedule, each State Quarter will be minted for only about 10 weeks. As a result, mintages of each quarter only are to be just a fraction of the "normal" quarters are. Regular issue coins will be minted at both the Philadelphia and the Denver Mints. On the front, otherwise known as the obverse, the specific mintmarks can be found to the right of George Washington's portrait. The small "P" indicates the Philadelphia Mint and the small "D" refers to the Denver.
