U.S. Mint releases designs for 2011 Park Quarters

Earlier this week the United States Mint announced the designs for the second set of coins in its America the Beautiful Quarters Program.

The U.S. Mint America the Beautiful Quarters Program is a multi-year initiative to mint and issue 56 circulating quarter-dollar coins with reverse designs emblematic of a national park or other national site in each state, the District of Columbia and the five U.S. territories. The quarters are being released in the order in which the featured site was first established as a national park or site. The designs will rotate five times each year through 2020, with the final coin being released in 2021.

The 2011 quarters will bear designs honoring Gettysburg National Military Park (Pennsylvania); Glacier National Park (Montana); Olympic National Park (Washington); Vicksburg National Military Park (Mississippi); and Chickasaw National Recreation Area (Oklahoma).

The quarter for the Great Smoky Mountains, which will be representing Tennessee, is scheduled to be issued in 2014.

Anon - just did a search on images in Google and came up with nothing. Seems pretty early at this point, but will post something as soon as I see something.
