U.S. Mint debuts designs for the first five coins in its America the Beautiful Quarters Program, which will honor 56 national parks. The rest will be released through 2021.
The coin designs will be presented in the order they were first designated as national landmarks by the federal government. The first quarter in the series, Hot Springs National Park in Arkansas, will be released April 19, followed by four additional coins in 2010.
The other 51 quarters will roll out periodically through 2021, when Alabama's Tuskegee Airmen National Historic Site completes the series.
