Launch events set for new quarters

The latest additions to the America the Beautiful quarter series will be coins depicting the American Memorial Park (top), which pays tribute to the sacrifices made by American troops and residents of Saipan during the Marianas Campaign of World War II, and War in the Pacific (bottom), which honors the men and women who participated in Pacific Theater campaigns during the same conflict.

A pair of two-day events will mark the launch of the newest America the Beautiful quarters from the U.S. Mint.

First up is the American Memorial Park quarter, which honors the thousands of American troops and local residents of Saipan who gave their lives during the Marianas Campaign of World War II.

A coin forum will take place on Monday, Apr. 29, from 5 p.m. to 6 p.m. (ChST) at the American Memorial Park Visitor Center Theatre, located on Micro Beach Road, Garapan, Saipan CNMI.

The following morning, a quarter launch and coin exchange commences at 10 a.m. (ChST) at the American Memorial Park Amphitheater, also on Micro Beach Road.

Just a few days later, a War in the Pacific National Historical Park quarter – honoring the bravery and sacrifices made by men and women during the campaigns of the Pacific Theater during World War II – will have its turn.

A coin forum will be held on Thursday, May 2, from 5 p.m. to 6 p.m. (ChST) at the War in the Pacific National Historical Park in the T. Stell Newman Visitor Center, located at Marine Corps Drive (outside Navy Base main gate) in Sumay, Guam.

The following quarter launch and coin exchange will begin at 10 a.m. (ChST) on Friday, May 3, at the War in the Pacific National Historical Park found at Asan Beach Park in Asan, Guam.

U.S. Mint Director David J. Ryder will be the senior official for both events. Bank of Guam will be the exchange bank for both quarters with the “D” mintmark.
