The U.S. Mint has issued the first of 2013 and 16th overall in the America the Beautiful quarters program. It is a follow up to the state quarters program.
The newest quarter is a tribute to New Hampshire. It is the White Mountain National Forest quarter. The quarter shows a very familiar scene. It is Mt. Chocorua. I believe the scene shows the mountain as seen from Sandwich.
It is a beautiful coin, which I expect many collectors will want.
It is very disappointing that none of the banks in Laconia are getting them. I would like to know why.
I have made inquiries at every bank in the city and the only response from tellers is that they don't know.
