The five 2018 coins represent numbers 46 through 50 of a total of 56 coins to be issued during the 12-year program. The program calls for one coin depicting a national park or historic site in each of the 50 states, the District of Columbia, and the five U.S. territories.

Release dates

The release dates for the other 2018 quarter dollars are:

➤ Apostle Islands National Lakeshore, April 9

➤ Voyageurs National Park, June 11

➤ Cumberland Island National Seashore, Aug. 27

➤ Block Island National Wildlife Refuge, Nov. 13

Collectors will first see the 2018 quarter dollars rendered as Proof coins for special collector sets, likely to be offered by the U.S. Mint sometime in January.

Official launch ceremonies associated with the circulation releases for the individual coins will be conducted by the U.S. Mint near the release dates of the coins to the Federal Reserve. The circulation release to the Federal Reserve usually coincides also with the U.S. Mint's offering of the circulation strikes as numsimatic products in bags and rolls.
