The last surviving worker who helped carve Mount Rushmore was an honored guest Nov. 6 at the launch ceremony for the quarter honoring the National Monument.

Nick Clifford was at the National Guard Amory Custer, S.D., to participate in the event along with 1,000 school children and 400 adults.

“This new quarter reflects our continued fascination with the majestic Mount Rushmore National Memorial and the enduring legacies of the four leaders whose faces have become one with the Black Hills,” said David Croft, Acting Associate Director for Manufacturing at the United States Mint.

The Mint said additional participants included Custer Chamber of Commerce Executive Director David Ressler, who served as master of ceremonies, and Mount Rushmore Superintendent Cheryl A. Schreier.

After the ceremony, $15,000 of the new quarters were sold for face value in $10 rolls.

Rolls can also be purchased by visiting www.usmint.gov.
