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 Glacier Quarter is the SEVENTH in the new America The Beautiful Quarter Series (TM). The Glacier National Park Quarter features a scene from the park. The northeast slope of Mount Reynolds is in the distance, while a mountain goat in the park's high country is in the foreground. Mount Reynolds dominates the scenery of Glacier National Park. A glacial horn, its pyramid-like peak was formed by glaciers which eroded the sides of the mountain. The mountain goat is one of 62 species of mammals that can be found within the park.

This 40-coin roll of Glacier Quarters was minted at the Denver Mint, and is in brilliant Uncirculated condition.
