The U.S. Mint unveils new America the Beautiful quarters

Some change is coming to your spare change.

On April 19, a new quarter will begin to appear in cash registers and lint-filled pockets across the country. George Washington will still grace the front, but the back will feature a picture of Hot Springs National Park in Arkansas. The coin is the first of the America the Beautiful Quarters Program. (April 19, incidentally, nicely coincides with National Coin Week.)

The last set of quarters to be issued were part of the 50 States Quarter Program, which took up much of the first decade of the 21st century. Every several months, a new quarter would be released, featuring an iconic image having to do with each of the 50 states. It was considered a huge success and sparked a trend among amateur coin collectors to gather all 50 of the coins.
