The second coin of five to be issued in 2010 as part of the US Mint's America the Beautiful Quarters series is the 2010 Yellowstone National Park Quarter. Its issue or beginning circulation date is June 1, 2010.

Yellowstone National Park Quarter Design

Obverse design: John Flanagan's original 1932 portrait of George Washington (modified by William Cousins) is featured on the obverse. Also seen are the inscriptions "UNITED STATES OF AMERICA," "QUARTER DOLLAR," "LIBERTY", "IN GOD WE TRUST" and the mintmark.

Reverse design: The reverse design features the Old Faithful geyser with a mature bull bison in the foreground.  Inscriptions included are "YELLOWSTONE," "WYOMING," "2010" and "E PLURIBUS UNUM." The coin was both designed and sculpted by Don Everhart.

The following three candidate desgins were created for consideration. U.S. Treasury Secretary Timothy F. Geithner made the final selection, shown above, after receiving recommendations from U.S. Mint Director Ed Moy.
