Thousands of people (the balcony was full of kids) showed up at the launch of the Massachusetts America The Beautiful quarter. I went with little expectations. I was surprised at the pomp and circumstance. This is the first ATB for 2019 and the 46th overall. Alabama will be the 56th and final release in early 2021. The 50 states, Washington DC and the 5 US Territories are represented (look here: THIS LINK ). The coin itself is quite nice. The design honors the female workers specific to Lowell, Massachusetts mills. The ceremony was as much about women and their place in the work force of historical America as much as about the ATB quarter. The people who spoke kept it short and eloquent. Marc Landry, the Associate Director of the Numismatic and Bullion Directorate at The Mint was the only male on the stage. The audience was primarily kids under 10 (YAY! SCHOOL TRIP!). Some high school kids were there too - a few spoke at the podium. There was a high school honor guard (to start the whole thing) and high school band. All in all, pretty impressive. This is the only one of these that I have been to. Has anyone been to one of these? Are they all like this?
