Southeastern Bank announces that it will serve as the official bank sponsor for the upcoming launch of the America the Beautiful Quarter program’s new Cumberland Island National Seashore quarter.
The U.S. Mint, National Park Service and others will host a ceremonial launch of the new quarter on Thursday, August 30that 10:00 a.m. at the Camden County High School Auditorium. The release of the Cumberland Island National Seashore quarter is the forty-fourth by the Mint program that began in 2010. Elected officials and dignitaries from across the state are expected to be in attendance at the event.
As part of the ceremony, Southeastern Bank will exchange cash for rolls of the Cumberland Island quarters. A 1-roll minimum ($10 value) and a 10-roll maximum ($100 value) per person will apply at the coin exchange.
“As a local community bank with 130 years of history right here along the Cumberland shoreline, we’re honored to have been selected as the official bank sponsor for the Cumberland Island National Seashore Quarter Launch Coin Exchange, joining the U.S. Mint and National Park Service for this very exciting event,“ said Shannon Sasser, Vice President and Branch Manager of Southeastern Bank in Kingsland. “The quarter launch is an incredible opportunity to bring the community together as we showcase Cumberland Island and this beautiful area we call home.”
To extend the opportunity for residents throughout southeast Georgia and northeast Florida to purchase the new quarter, Southeastern Bank will host a second coin exchange event on Friday, September 7th from 10 a.m. – 3:00 p.m. at all branch locations. The September 7th event is open to the public and will allow people unable to attend the official launch event to have a chance to take home the Cumberland Island National Seashore commemorative quarters.
