Yosemite, CA — Yosemite National Park is inviting the public to attend a special ceremony July 29th to celebrate the launch of the new Yosemite Quarter.
This free event which starts at 11 am will take place in front of the Yosemite Valley Visitors Center and feature live music and special guest speakers. Children under 18 in attendance will also receive a free Yosemite Quarter to commemorate this special day.
This is the second time that Yosemite National Park has been featured on a quarter.
