The United States Mint has provided the release dates for three new products featuring America the Beautiful Quarters. The three collector sets were previously announced in May, at which time the release dates were unknown.
The America the Beautiful Quarters program highlights a National Park or other national site from each state, U.S. territory, and the District of Columbia depicted on the reverse design of a quarter dollar. Five different designs are scheduled to be released each year from 2010 to 2020, with a final design released in 2021. In addition to various collector offerings from the United States Mint, the coins are also released into general circulation, although their appearance has been elusive.
