In 2010, the United States Mint began issuing 56 quarter-dollar coins featuring designs depicting national parks and other national sites as part of the United States Mint America the Beautiful Quarters Program. Pictured Rocks National Lakeshore is #41. In all, there will be 56 quarters in the series, released between 2010 and 2021.
