America's Beautiful National Parks Quarter

I had a lovely chat with Molly from The Mount today and she informed me of something that I did not know about. Now that the U.S. Mint has finished with the 50 States Quarters Program, they are beginning a new program, America's Beautiful National Parks Quarter. These new quarters will have images of many of our national parks. The U.S. Mint has asked Governor Patrick to select one site in the state to appear on the quarter. The Mount is one of the finalist sites. So if you would like to see The Mount on the reverse of a quarter please visit the link below. The best part about this is you can vote as many times as you would like for as many different sites. Voting ends at 5:00 p.m. February 26, 2009.

Just a fun little tidbit that I thought I would share with everyone.
