New US Quarter to Feature Glacier National Park

Glacier Quarter

HELENA – Glacier National Park will be featured on one of the U.S. Mint’s new “America the Beautiful” quarters this year.

The National Park Service says it’s one of five new coins in the series honoring national parks.

The quarter features a mountain goat with Reynolds Mountain in the background. It’s a view familiar to visitors who drive the Going-to-the-Sun Road.

A ceremony unveiling the quarter will take place Wednesday, April 13 at the Columbia Falls High School gymnasium. People will be able to buy $10 rolls of the new quarters.
