Yellowstone National Park Quarter Launch Ceremony
The US Mint has announced the details of the release ceremony for the second coin of the America the Beautiful Quarters series featuring Yellowstone National Park.
The release ceremony will be held on June 3, 2010 at 10:30 AM Mountain Time, behind the Old Faithful Inn at Yellowstone National Park. The inn is located adjacent to the Old Faithful Geyser, which is depicted on the reverse design of the quarter.
The ceremony takes place two days after the circulation release date for the Yellowstone Quarter, which is set for June 1, 2010. The US Mint will also begin sales of numismatic bags and rolls of the Yellowstone National Park Quarter on this date.
Similar to prior launch ceremonies, attendees will have the opportunity to exchange currency for rolls of Yellowstone National Park Quarters at face value. The quarters will be from the Denver Mint and carry the "D" mint mark. The coin exchange will have a minimum of one roll and a maximum of ten rolls for each pass through the line. A pictorial postal cancellation designed by Chuck Taylor will also be available.
As a change from prior ceremonies, the US Mint will not be holding a coin collector's forum prior to the launch ceremony.
Coverage of the event should also be available on Coin Update. You can read coverage of the previous Hot Springs National Park Quarter launch ceremony and coin exchange.
