Hot Springs Arkansas Quarter

So, today is a very special day. Yes, it is Tuesday and that means that LOST is on tonight but that is not what I'm talking about. As many of you may know I took up a new hobby a few years ago. Numismatics! That means coin collecting. So, I am very excited that today the United States Mint is releasing the first of the new 2010 America the Beautiful Quarters. This first quarter is honoring Hot Springs National Park in Arkansas. I have to admit, of the four possible designs for the reverse of the coin they picked the one that I liked the least, but it still looks pretty cool. I got the new coin folder for this series of coins back at Christmas. I suspect by next Christmas, if I'm lucky, I might have two or even three coins in there.

  1. We'll keep an eye out for the quarter for you. Numismatics, huh? Only you would know that word :)
