PLANS UNDERWAY FOR SOUTH DAKOTA QUARTER LAUNCH CEREMONY

According to an article this week in the Rapid City Journal,
"There will be speeches and music, but the star of the Monday,
Nov. 13, ceremony will be the shiny new coin making its first
public appearance.

The South Dakota commemorative quarter, the 40th coin in the
series honoring all 50 states, will make its debut that day at
Mount Rushmore National Memorial."

"Edmund C. Moy, director of the U.S. Mint, is expected to attend
the event. Gov. Mike Rounds and first lady Jean Rounds will be
there, too."

"The South Dakota commemorative quarter, engraved by John Mercanti,
features an unlikely scene of a pheasant flying over Mount Rushmore
National Memorial. The Chinese ring-necked pheasant is the state
bird, and Mount Rushmore is the state’s most recognizable image."

"On the day of the event, the Mount Rushmore History Association
will be selling commemorative packages featuring two uncirculated
South Dakota quarters. The history association, an arm of the Mount
Rushmore Memorial Society, raises funds for interpretive and
educational programs at the memorial."
