Announcing the America The Beautiful Quarters™ Series (TM)

How can you make something better than the 50 State Quarter Program? Here's how !!
There were many reasons for the success of the State Quarter program in 1999. The top two - the design ( each state had their own theme ), and the limited production - only being made for less than 11 weeks.

Starting in 2010, it just got better. Taking a page from the success referenced above, the US Mint will be issuing a New Series .. "The America the Beautiful Quarters™." But this one will have a twist. There will be one quarter per state, just like the 50 State Program, but the design will be based on one of the National Parks located in each state. The order will be based on when they were introduced as a National Treasure.

But the kicker is distribution. Unlike the 50 State Quarter program where Congress forced the Mint to distribute the quarters to the local markets ( and even then many of us didn't see but a few of the releases ) this new program does NOT have to be released into the same flow of commerce. What does that mean? Well in 2009 the Mint released 6 special quarters for the six US Protectorate Territories .. adding them to the 50 State Quarter Program. Have any of you seen them in circulation? And if so, more than a couple? That's the "New" distribution system.

The Yellowstone Quarter is the SECOND in the new America The Beautiful Quarter Series (TM). The Yellowstone National Park Quarter shows a mature bull buffalo standing on front of the erupting Old Faithful geyser. Buffalo once roamed by the millions across the western plains, but Yellowstone National Park is now home to the last free-roaming herd of buffalo in the United States. Old Faithful erupts for between 1.5 and 5 minutes about every 90 minutes. It shoots up to 8,400 gallons of boiling water up to 185 feet in the air. This 40-coin roll of Yellowstone Quarters was minted at the Denver Mint, and is in brilliant Uncirculated condition.
