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.

Focus on Parks

Celebrate National Park and Recreation Month (July) by visiting our America the Beautiful Quarters® Program page.  There you can find out about the program, see a map of the site locations, and get a schedule of the order of coin releases.

Be sure to also visit the America the Beautiful Quarters Program Lesson Plans page to gather lesson plan ideas to use in your classroom.

Finally, test your national park knowledge by playing the 2012 America the Beautiful Quarters Game Triple Play.

Independence Day
