The Yellowstone National Park Quarter is the second of 2010 and the second overall in the America the Beautiful Quarters™ Program. First established as a national site on March 1, 1872 (17 Stat. 32), Yellowstone National Park is home to a large variety of wildlife, including grizzly bears, wolves, bison and elk. Preserved within the park are Old Faithful and a collection of the world's most extraordinary geysers.
