Tonight I completed the collection of State Park Quarters and polished off the collector’s book. If you didn’t know the US Mint ran a program called “America the Beautiful Quarters“, and there was a quarter design produced for each of the 50 National Parks, as well as one for each of the 6 US territories […]
