Block Island Quarter Release by US Mint

4 posts in this topic

I attended the U.S. Mint's launch of the 2018 Block Island National Wildlife Refuge quarter today in RI. The event was held at the RI National Wildlife Refuge Headquarters in Charlestown, RI. The guest speakers included David Ryder, the Mint Director. And Chris Costello, the coins designer, was also present. We were able to purchase BU rolls of the coin after the ceremony from a local bank that set up in a room for that purpose. Block Island is a small island off the southern coast of RI that's quite beautiful. It's technically the Town of New Shoreham and you can only reach it by the ferry or the island's airport. Sorry that I don't have pictures to post, but there will be media coverage. The coin is the 45th in the America the Beautiful series and the last to be issued this year.
