United States Mint Set to Release Harpers Ferry National Historical Park Quarter on June 6
WASHINGTON - The United States Mint will accept orders for product options with quarters honoring Harpers Ferry National Historical Park in West Virginia starting on June 6 at noon Eastern Time (ET). The Harpers Ferry National Historical Park quarter is the 33rd release in the America the Beautiful Quarters® Program, a 12-year initiative authorized by Public Law 110-456 to honor 56 national parks and other national sites. Each year, five new national sites are depicted on the reverses (tail sides) of the America the Beautiful Quarters coins. The United States Mint is issuing these quarters in the order in which the national sites were officially established.
The quarter's reverse design features John Brown's Fort, the site of John Brown's last stand during his raid on the Harpers Ferry Armory. Inscriptions are "HARPERS FERRY," "WEST VIRGINIA," "JOHN BROWN'S FORT," "2016," and "E PLURIBUS UNUM."
Product options and their prices are as follows:
P and D
P, D, and S
Coins in the rolls and bags are struck on the main production floors at the Philadelphia, Denver, and San Francisco Mints. The three-roll set contains coins from all three facilities. Unlike the "P" and "D" mint mark quarters, those with the "S" mint mark will not be released into circulation.
The special numismatic wrapping for the coin rolls displays the name "Harpers Ferry National Historical Park"; the abbreviation "WV" for West Virginia; "$10," the face value of its contents; and "P," "D," or "S" for the mint of origin. The canvas bags have a tag with "Harpers Ferry National Historical Park"; "WV"; and "P," "D," or "S."
