America the Beautiful Quarters Release Dates

Release DatesDuring the course of the eleven year series, America the Beautiful Quarters were released at a rate of five different designs per year with a single design released in the final year. The order of release for the coins was determined based on the order in which the national sites featured on the coins were federally designated. For the first few years of the program, an official launch ceremony was held at the site around the date the coins were released into circulation.

The first America the Beautiful Quarter featuring Hot Springs National Park of Arkansas was released on January 26, 2010. This was followed by the four additional releases for the year at roughly equal intervals. A similar schedule was followed for subsequent releases of the series, culminating with the final coin featuring Tuskegee Airmen National Historic Site of Alabama released on January 4, 2021.

As was the case for the previous State Quarters Program, the constant stream of new designs kept Americans watching their pocket change for the newest releases. A multitude of numismatic products were also released in coordination with the circulation release, providing collectors with many options to supplement their collections.
