State Parks Quarters History
The America the Beautiful State Parks Quarters are a series of 25-cent pieces (quarters) issued by the United States Mint from 2010 until at least 2021. The series may be extended at the option of the Secretary of the Treasury, potentially extending the series to 2033. The obverse of all the coins will depict George Washington in a restored version of the original portrait used for the 1932 Washington Quarter. There will be five new reverse designs each year (one in 2021) each depicting a national park or national site (one from each state, the federal district, and each territory). The program is authorized by the America’s Beautiful National Parks Quarter Dollar Coin Act of 2008.
