Design of Pictured Rocks National Lakeshore to appear on U.S. quarters
MUNISING, Mich. (WPBN/WGTU)-- Keep an eye on your quarters— starting in February, a design of Pictured Rocks National Lakeshore will be on the back!
Pictured Rocks National Lakeshore was selected for one of the designs for the 2018 America the Beautiful Quarter Program.
The design was unveiled Tuesday at the American Numismatic Association’s World’s Fair of Money Trade Show in Denver, Colorado. The design shows Chapel Rock and the white pine that grows atop it.
In 2010, the United States Mint began issuing 56 quarter-dollar coins featuring designs showing national parks and other national sites as part of the United States Mint America the Beautiful Quarters® Program.
Pictured Rocks National Lakeshore will be the 41st national park to be on a U.S. quarter.
All together, there will be 56 quarters in the series. The quarters started to be released in 2010 and will continue through 2021.
