Acadia National Park is the latest park to be featured on a coin. Bass Head Lighthouse, in Southwest Harbor, can be found on the latest quarter in the US Mint's America the Beautiful Quarters Program. The coin was unveiled at a special ceremony in the park this morning.
"When you just look at the natural beauty [of the lighthouse], that's part of it," said B.B. Craig, Associate Director for Sales and Marketing for the US Mint, "but then when you look at the history, that speaks for itself."
The US Mint releases five quarters each year, depicting 56 national parks and other national sites.
