Effigy Mounds to be featured on new quarter

Posted:

WASHINGTON, D.C. (KWWL) -- Effigy Mounds National Monument is one of 56 national monuments to be featured on a new series of U.S. quarters.

The U.S. Mint selected a national monument from each state and territory. Effigy Mounds will represent Iowa in the series.

The new quarters will be issued beginning next year, beginning in the order in which each site was established as a national monument.

Effigy Mounds includes more than 200 early American Indian mounds, with 31 in the shapes of animals or birds.
