United State Quarters
Commemorative Statehood Series


Since the first Mint Act of 1792, the US treasury has directed the US Mint to produce various designs for the quarter. As recently as October 1996, the US Congress passed the Commemorative Coin Act, authorizing the US Mint to strike a commemorative coin, honoring each of the 50 states of the union.

In January 1999, the US Mint released the first commemorative state quarter, honoring Delaware, into circulation.

Five different designs were issued each year from 1999 through 2008. States were commemorated in order of their entrance into statehood.

Those are legal tender coins of standard weight and composition. The obverse side depicting President George Washington has been modified to include some of the wording previously used on the reverse. The modification was authorized by special legislation, and carried out by Mint sculptor-engraver William Cousins, whose initials have been added to the truncation of Washington's neck adjacent to those of the original designer, John Flanagan.

Each state theme was proposed and approved by the governor of the state. Final designs were created by Mint personnel. Circulation coins were made at the Philadelphia and Denver mints. Proof coins were made in San Francisco.

•   Weight; 5.67 grams
•   Composition; outer layers of copper-nickel (0.750 copper, 0.250 nickel) bonded to inner core of pure copper.
•   Diameter; 24.3 mm
•   Reeded edge
•   Silver Proof—Pre-1965 standards.

Some state quarters were accidentally made with "dis-oriented" dies and are valued higher than ordinary pieces. Normal United States coins have dies oriented in "coin alignment", such that the reverse appears upside down when the coin is rotated from right to left. Values for the rotated-die quarters vary according to the amount of shifting. The most valuable are those that are shifted 180 degrees, so that both sides appear upright when the coin is turned over (called medal alignment).

Manufacturing varieties showing die doubling or other minor, unintentional characteristics are of interest to collectors and are often worth premium prices.
