The New State Quarters:
The obverse or heads side of the national sites and national parks quarters will depict a portrait of George Washington contrived from a restored version of the 1932 design by John Flanagan that we are all familiar with.
Authorized by the Americas Beautiful National Parks Quarter Dollar Coin Act of 2008 (HR 6184), the series could potentially be extended to 2033 at the option of the Secretary of the Treasury.
Four of the new state quarters will depict sites that were also included on the Statehood Quarters, although the design, or image, will be brand new for the National Parks quarter series. These include:
- Grand Canyon in Arizona
- Yosemite in California
- White Mountains in New Hampshire
- Mount Rushmore in South Dakota
Also slated for release along with their America the Beautiful Quarter counterpart are Silver Bullion 5-Ounce Coins which will be exact duplicates of the new state quarters, except for size and metal content of course.
These collector and investor coins will be three inches in diameter and contain five ounces of .999 fine silver. These silver bullion coins will be available during the same year as their America the Beautiful quarter counterpart.
Below you will find the release schedule of the National Parks Quarters, along with the date the honored site was first established as a national site.
