Cedarhurst, NY, December 21, 2011 --(PR.com
)-- Collectible coins retailer The Patriotic Mint, available online at http://www.ThePatrioticMint.com, is showcasing its new collection of national park quarters. The collection dates back to 2010, when the United States Mint began issuing a series of quarter-dollar coins as part of the United States Mint “America the Beautiful” Quarters Program.
This year’s coin sets include five quarters honoring the Gettysburg National Park in Pennsylvania, the Glacier National Park in Montana, the Olympic National Park in Washington, the Vicksburg National Park in Mississippi, and the Chickasaw National Park in Oklahoma. At The Patriotic Mint, coin collecting enthusiasts have four different sets to choose from.
The 2011 BU (Brilliantly Uncirculated) National Parks Quarters, available for just $16.95 for a complete set of five, are in pristine condition and come straight from the United States Mint. For just three dollars more, coin collectors can enjoy the 2011 Colorized National Parks Quarters. Struck by the United States Mint, these colorized coins are brilliantly-hued versions of the BU quarters.
For those who prefer gold over silver or colorized coins, the 2011 Gold Plated National Park Quarters, which are plated with pure 24 karat gold, can be purchased for $19.95. Rounding out the collection are the 2011 Gold With Hologram National Park Quarters, also just $19.95. Each coin is gold-plated and features a unique holographic aesthetic.
The 2012 series is already underway, and will feature collectible coins depicting the El Yunque National Forest in Puerto Rico, the Chaco Culture National Historical Park in New Mexico, the Acadia National Park in Maine, the Hawaii Volcanoes National Park in Hawaii, and the Denali National Park and Preserve in Alaska.
