With the recent release of the twenty five cent piece commemorating Hawaii becoming one of the United States of America, the commemorative State Quarter program that began in 1999 has come to a close.
But while the quarter will return to its traditional sides of George Washington on the front and an American Bald eagle on the reverse for 2009, we may not be saying "Aloha" to specialty coins just yet.
A bill is pending that, if passed, will allow the United States mint to start a similar commemorative program honoring America's National Parks beginning in 2010.
More details on this as the story develops.
