To celebrate the debut of the US Mint’s 2018 Pictured Rocks National Lakeshore Quarter, on Saturday, February 10 Lansing coin dealer Liberty Coin Service (LCS) will begin giving them away to people who bring to the store non-perishable food or cash donations to the Greater Lansing Food Bank. The event, called the “Cans For Quarters Food-Raiser,” will continue through March 31, 2018. Customers will receive one quarter for each of the first four food items they donate and a 40-coin roll of Pictured Rocks Quarters for cash donations of $25.00 or more.
Said LCS CEO and owner Tom Coulson, “This will be the fourth time that Liberty has celebrated the introduction of a new coin by giving away quarters in a Food-Raiser to support the Greater Lansing Food Bank. We began this tradition in 1999 with the first issue of the Statehood Quarter series, then again in 2004 with the release of the Michigan Statehood Quarter, and once more in 2010 for the first issue of the current America the Beautiful Quarter series. In each of the previous campaigns, we brought in multiple tons of food donations and thousands of dollars in cash contributions. We want to do even better this time around. We thank the Peoples State Bank in Munising, Michigan for providing us a supply of Pictured Rocks National Lakeshore Quarters to allow us to begin this Food-Raiser before the coins will start showing up at banks in the Lansing area.”
