January 22, 2016, Chicago Tribune "New quarter to detail Shawnee National Forest" by Dawn Rhodes.
The U.S. Mint is set to release a new coin featuring the Shawnee National Forest in southern Illinois. It is part of its America the Beautiful Quarters program featuring national parks across the country.
The reverse features a closeup of Camel Rock, one of the famous sandstone rock formations in the Garden of Gods area of the park. Vegetation is in the foreground and a red-tailed hawk flies above it. It was designed by Utah artist Justin Kunz and will be introduced in a ceremony February 4 at Southeastern Illinois College.
Visitors could buy $10 rolls of the quarters.
I have been collecting this set of quarters, made very difficult by its limited releases to coin shops and private collectors who charge $20 for a roll of the quarters.
I think they should be released through banks.
Not Real Happy About the Way They Are Releasing the Quarters. --RoadDog
Happy Fiftieth Anniversary Liz
