A first-strike ceremony for the Arizona quarter was held May 16 at the Denver Mint.

Leading a delegation from Arizona was Gov. Janet Napolitano. She was joined by members of the Arizona Quarter Commission, which helped in the design selection process. Its youngest member is 12-year-old Matthew Rounis.
Formal debut of the new quarter was slated for June 2 on the State Capitol Senate Lawn in Phoenix.

Rolls and bags also go on sale on that date. Visit the U.S. Mint?s Web site at www.usmint.gov, or telephone (800) USA-MINT.
