Description

2016 will mark the 100 year anniversary of the National Park Service, and to commence the centennial celebration, the United States Mint announced three new commemorative coin designs.

“Heads or tails, this Centennial commemorative coin helps to honor the National Park Service’s first century of service to protect, preserve, and share some of our nation’s greatest natural resources, culture, and history,” said National Park Service Director Jonathan Jarvis, according to a press release from the U.S. Mint. “The coins will be a fun centennial collectible, and the proceeds will contribute to our second century of service to the American people.”

One of the new coin designs, a $1 silver coin, features a Yellowstone bison standing in front of Old Faithful geyser.

Though the U.S. Mint has not announced when they will be available for purchase, they have announced the pricing.

According to the press release, the Yellowstone commemorative coin will cost $10, and all proceeds will go to the National Park Service for current and future projects.
