The US Mint will issue a new quarter honoring Michigan's Pictured Rocks National Lakeshore. Watch the new quarter being created.

The quarter, released in early 2018 is part of the America the Beautiful series which creates a coin highlighting a National Park from each state and territory.

The video below shows the process of crafting and minting the new coin which will be released to the public following a ceremony February 7 in Munising, the home of Pictured Rocks National Lakeshore.


US Mint sculptor Michael Gaudioso talks about the process producing the design for the Pictured Rocks quarter, which he describes as fun and the challenge of re-creating the beauty of nature on a coin.
