If you are going to be in the area of Acadia National Park today, June 26, the U.S. Mint will hold the launch ceremony at 9:30 AM at the Hulls Grove Visitors Center, Bar Harbor, Maine.
Scheduled to speak at the event are:
- B.B. Craig, Associate Director, Sales and Marketing, United States Mint
- Sheridan Steele, Superintendent, Acadia National Park
- Timothy Harrison, Founder, American Lighthouse Foundation
- Bill Green, Host, WCSH-TV’s “Bill Green’s Maine”
Rolls of the newly-minted coins, which feature an image of Bass Harbor Head Lighthouse, which, ironically isn’t actually in the park, will be available for sale.
For those who like video, and who doesn’t, the following is B-Roll footage from the U.S. Mint including a few seconds of U.S. Mint Sculptor and Engraver Joseph Menna working on the design of the coin using a computer. Coin was designed by Artistic Infusion Program Associate Designer Barbara Fox.
