Shenandoah National Park is coming to a cash register near you in the form of a new quarter. The Shenandoah National Park quarter is the 22nd of 56 America the Beautiful Coins, a campaign that started in 2010. The Shenandoah National Park quarter is now available online. People will be able to buy new, uncirculated quarters by the roll at a launch ceremony in Front Royal this Friday. Leslie Velarde says you can also pick them up in the park itself. The Shenandoah National Park quarter features a hiker looking over the Shenandoah Valley from Stony Man Summit.
