It’s me, Richard Saunders of Poor Richard’s Almanac fame, here today to ask the burning question: Have you actually seen any of the National Parks Quarters in pocket change? As a chump-change coin collector, I bought one of those fold-up books to hold my collection of National Parks Quarters, issued by the U.S. Treasury following the huge success of the 50 State Quarters program.
That was last year. I still had yet to see a single parks quarter show up in pocket change until last week, when a Yellowstone quarter appeared in my pocket. But wouldn’t you know, it had a black smudge on it so I couldn’t even use it in my book!
Yikes. Where are all those National Parks Quarters? Are you finding them in your purse or pocket? What’s the holdup here?!! Let me know if other parts of the country are luckier than Pennsylvania in this respect. I hate to think that my quarters book is going to stay empty.
