June 2008

During the past month, new information and activities have been added to the United States Mint H.I.P. Pocket Change Web site.  To help you learn "What's New for You," we've listed and linked these features below.

June Coin of the Month:  Join Flip and learn more about the great state of Arizona.  Arizona is the 48th and last continental state in the 50 State Quarters® Program.  The Arizona quarter features a banner that proclaims its nickname, "The Grand Canyon State."  Learn more about the famous natural wonder featured on this state's quarter.

State Quarter Day in the Classroom:  Celebrate the Arizona quarter with State Quarter Day in the Classroom.   Read more about the "Grand Canyon State" and find out what's great about the 48th state.

Summer Fun with Coins:  During the summer months, there are lots of ways to have fun with coins.  Here you will find some great activities including arts and crafts, tricks and games, and even ways to earn money.  There are suggestions on collecting coins, designing note cards, creating clay coins, making a piggy bank, and yummy "cents-sational" cookies!

Celebrate Father's Day:  Invite your students to visit our Games page and make a special card for Dad using Plinky's Create-a-Card (printer required).
