Hot on the heels of the 2009 District of Columbia and U.S. Territories Quarters Program, the America the Beautiful Quarters™ Program honors our country's national sites—one from each of the 50 states, the District of Columbia and five U.S. territories.
The series begins with the oldest of our national sites—Hot Springs National Park. Located in the mountains of Arkansas, this park and the city of Hot Springs grew up around a group of 47 geothermal springs that flow from the side of a mountain at more than 130 degrees.
