America the Beautiful Quarters Program 2010 with picture of Yosemite National Park

The Yosemite National Park Quarter

The Yosemite National Park quarter is the third of 2010 and the third overall in the America the Beautiful Quarters® Program.  Yosemite National Park, one of the first wilderness parks in the United States, is best known for its waterfalls, but within its nearly 1,200 square miles are deep valleys, grand meadows and ancient giant sequoias.  It was first established as a national site on October 1, 1890 (26 Stat. 650).
