Yosemite National Park Quarter Bags and RollsThis week the United States Mint published the opening sales figures for Yosemite National Park Quarters, and with a new month beginning it also released new coin production figures that provided the preliminary 2010-P Yosemite quarter and 2010-D Yosemite quarter mintages.

Bags and rolls of the third coin released in the America the Beautiful Quarters™ Program were launched on Monday, July 26 — the Yosemite quarter ceremonial release occurred on Thursday, July 29. Their opening sales show that collectors purchased just over 2.7 million quarter-dollars between Monday and Sunday.
