Littleton Coin donates $10,000 to the Forest Society for celebration and conservation!
February 25, 2013 – LITTLETON, NH – Littleton Coin Company has teamed up with the Society for the Protection of New Hampshire Forests to celebrate the release of the U.S. Mint's new White Mountain National Forest quarter and help preserve the state's forested landscape. The company will donate $10,000 to the organization, including $2,000 worth of White Mountain National Forest quarters in limited-edition Forest Society packaging and will volunteer time in the organization's land stewardship program.
Littleton's Special Edition Forest Society Showpak® featuring the White Mountain National Forest Coin
The quarters are part of the nation's newest commemorative quarter program, the America the Beautiful Quarters® Program. Each coin in this exciting series features a new design honoring a national park, national forest or historic site. New Hampshire's coin features a dramatic image of the White Mountain National Forest.
Littleton Coin, located in the White Mountain's region of New Hampshire, was seeking a way to celebrate the new quarter and help preserve the forested landscape of the region they call home. The Forest Society, with its long history of conservation in the state, was an ideal partner. Since its inception in 1901, the Forest Society has helped to protect more than 1 million acres of land in New Hampshire and was integral to the formation of the White Mountain National Forest in the early 20th century.
“We’re delighted to partner with Littleton Coin to celebrate the White Mountain National Forest,” said Jack Savage, VP of Communications for the Forest Society. “The new quarter is a great opportunity to recognize the value the White Mountains represent to the quality of life of New Hampshire residents and visitors alike.
“The funds will help support our ongoing conservation efforts,” Savage said, “and we will use the custom-packaged coins to help promote our initiatives.” In addition to the donation, Littleton Coin employee volunteers will also take part in the Forest Society’s stewardship program by participating in a spring cleanup at a local Forest Society Reservation.
