The free event will include an exchange of $10 rolls of newly minted American Memorial Park quarters after the ceremony.

The United States Mint will host a coin forum the evening before the launch ceremony — Monday, April 29, 2019, 5-6 p.m. — at the American Memorial Park Visitor Center Theatre. The coin forum is an opportunity for the public to learn about upcoming United States Mint coin programs and initiatives, and express their views about future coinage.

The American Memorial Park quarter is the 47th release in the United States Mint America the Beautiful Quarters Program, a 12-year initiative that honors 56 national parks and other national sites authorized by Public Law 110-456. Each year until 2020, the public will see five new national sites depicted on the reverses (tails sides) of the America the Beautiful Quarters. A final coin will be released in 2021. The United States Mint is issuing these quarters in the order in which the national sites were officially established.
