The following is a June 22 news release from the U.S. Mint:

WASHINGTON – The United States Mint will accept orders for product options containing quarters honoring Blue Ridge Parkway in North Carolina starting on June 29 at noon Eastern Daylight Time (EDT).

Coins in the bags and rolls are circulating quality that have never been in circulation and are struck on the main production floors of United States Mint facilities at Denver, Philadelphia, or San Francisco.

The three-roll set contains coins from all three facilities. Unlike the "P" and "D" Mint mark quarters, those with the "S" Mint mark are not being released into circulation.

The special numismatic wrapping for the coin rolls displays the name "Blue Ridge Parkway"; the abbreviation "NC" for North Carolina; "$10," the face value of its contents; and "P," "D," or "S" for the mint of origin. The canvas bags have a tag with "Blue Ridge Parkway"; "NC"; and "P," "D," or "S."
