Glacier to Celebrate New Quarter

Standard

Glacier National Park will celebrate the launch of the Glacier Park Quarter on April 13th at the Columbia Falls High School Gymnasium at 1:00pm. The public is invited to attend.

The quarter is the seventh coin in the America the Beautiful Quarters® Program.

After a brief ceremony, visitors may swap their currency for the new quarters in $10 rolls. All children under 18 will receive a free quarter.

The coin, one of five new coins honoring National Parks to be released this year, features a mountain goat surveying the high country with Reynolds Mountain in the background.

According to Glacier Park superintendent Chas Cartwright, “The design of the coin is one of the iconic views of Glacier National Park and will be very familiar to the thousands of visitors that drive over the Going-to-the-Sun Road each summer.”

    • The state quarters seemed to be very popular. I hope this series will be as well. Nice looking coins and they remind people about their favorite parks. I’m glad they put a mountain goat on this one.
