MINT DIRECTOR MOY TO ATTEND SOUTH DATOKA QUARTER CEREMONIES

According to the Rapid City Journal, "Edmund C. Moy will experience
three firsts on Monday. It will be his first trip to South Dakota and
his first visit to Mount Rushmore National Memorial. It will also be
Moys first state-quarter launch ceremony. He was sworn in as director
of the U.S. Mint on Sept. 5.

I think I hit the jackpot as a mint director  my first 50-state
quarter launch, and I get to do it at Mount Rushmore. Its really
an honor for me to be doing this particular coin at this time, he said.

The ceremony, open to the public, will be 10 a.m. Monday, Nov. 13,
in the Mount Rushmore amphitheater. If the weather is bad, the event
will be moved to the Central High School gym in Rapid City."

"At the ceremony, the Mount Rushmore History association will be
selling commemorative packages featuring two uncirculated coins.
Great Western Bank, chosen as the official bank for the South Dakota
quarter launch, will sell $10 rolls of the new quarters and give away
1,000 vouchers for two-coin sets available at its St. Joseph Street
branch.

On the eve of the event, Moy will appear Sunday at the Dahl Arts
Center, 713 Seventh St., at a forum for coin collectors and anyone
else interested in coins. It is from 4 p.m. to 5:30 p.m. Moy and
Gloria Eskridge, associate director for sales and marketing at the
U.S. Mint, will host the forum."
