    Check your pockets everybody, a new quarter celebrating Yosemite National Park is now in circulation.

    About 1,200 people attended a ceremony at the park Thursday to introduce the coin, which is part of the America the Beautiful Quarters Program.

    The coin depicts El Capitan on the "tails" side. And like all quarters, "heads" features a profile of George Washington.

    The U.S. Mint is selling bags and rolls of the coins for collectors.

    This year's America the Beautiful coins honor the country's four oldest national parks -- Hot Springs, Yellowstone, Yosemite and the Grand Canyon -- as well as Mount Hood National Forest in Oregon.
