YELLOWSTONE NATIONAL PARK, Wyo. (AP) - A ceremony at Old Faithful geyser will mark the official dedication of the Yellowstone National Park quarter.
The America the Beautiful Quarters Program will commemorate 56 national parks and other important sites over a 12-year period. The Yellowstone quarter features George Washington on the "heads" side and a bull bison standing in front of Old Faithful geyser on the "tails" side.
Those attending the ceremony in Yellowstone will have a chance to buy $10 rolls of the new quarters. Youngsters 18 and under will get a quarter for free.
The U.S. Mint has scheduled the ceremony for 10:30 a.m. Thursday.
