Yosemite National Park Quarter

Yesterday was the official circulation release date of the latest coin in the American the Beautiful Quarters Program featuring Yosemite National Park. The US Mint offered bags and rolls of quarters for sale to coincide with the release.

Yosemite Quarter

The Yosemite National Park Quarter features a depiction of the famous rock formation El Capitan, which is located within the park. This monolith of granite rises more than 3,000 feet into the air and is an impressive site for park visitors and a challenge for climbers. The design for the coin was created by Joseph Menna and sculpted by Phebe Hemphill.

The US Mint offered their standard array of products for the quarter, which include 100-coin bags from either the Philadelphia or Denver Mint facility or a two roll set, containing 40-coin rolls from either facility. The bags are priced at $35.95 each and the roll sets are priced at $32.95. Separately, the US Mint offers bulk bags of 200,000 quarters, but these will cost the prospective buyer $51,500 each!

Later this week, the official launch ceremony will be held at Yosemite National Park on July 29, 2010 at 11:00 AM PT. The event will take place at the Valley Visitor’s Center, Yosemite Village Loop.
