FAIRBANKS - The U.S. Mint will unveil a new quarter dollar honoring Denali National Park and Preserve on Nov. 15 during a ceremony at the Tri-Valley Community Center at .5 Mile Healy Spur Road in Healy.

The 10 a.m. event, which is open to the public, will feature officials from the Mint and Denali Park. After the ceremony, people can exchange cash for $10 rolls of newly minted Denali quarters at face value, according to a news release from the U.S. Mint in Washington, D.C.

The Denali quarter has been developed through the America the Beautiful Quarters Program, which will honor 56 national parks and other national sites.

Each year, five new national sites are depicted on the tails side of the quarters.

The Mint also will host a coin forum 6 p.m. Nov. 14 at the Tri-Valley Community Library, 400 Suntrana Road, in Healy. The forum will let the public learn about coming coin initiative and express views about future coinage.
