The third coin issued under the America the Beautiful Quarters Program was the 2010 Yosemite National Park Quarter from California. The quarter was introduced into circulation through Federal Reserve banks on July 26, 2010. The United States Mint and National Park Service hosted the coin's ceremonial release at the park itself three days later, on July 29, 2010.

Yosemite National Park Information

Millions of years of nature at work is responsible for the scenery of Yosemite National Park. Not wanting this to be spoiled by the intrusion of man, President Abraham Lincoln signed the Yosemite Grant in 1864.

This legislation, while filled with good intentions, did little to protect the area at first. Left under the control of the state of California, enterprising individuals were quick to exploit the visitors who came to see the scenery and a dam was even constructed in the Hetch Hetchy Valley area to provide water for San Francisco.

With the persistent pleadings of naturalist John Muir, President Theodore Roosevelt signed legislation bringing control of the area under the federal government. Since then, Yosemite has become a haven of wildlife and a destination for an estimated 3.5 million visitors annually.
