- Information on the State Quarters:
A unique event in the history of United States coinage began in 1999 when the U.S Mint released the first five issues of a total of 50 different quarters commemorating the 50 United States. The State Quarter series ran from 1999 through 2008.
The State Quarters were issued at a rate of five different quarter designs per year, with coins struck in the same order the states entered the Union. In the case of the thirteen original colonies, coins were released in the order they ratified the Constitution.
Each unique reverse design was proposed by its respective State then approved by the Secretary of the Treasury. State Quarter designs honor the history, geography, or traditions of each State, and are produced by the staff engravers at the U.S. Mint. A new Obverse for the State Quarter was designed by Mint Sculptor-engraver William Cousins featuring the words "United States of America", "Quarter Dollar", "Liberty", and "In God We Trust" as well as a sharpened image of George Washington.
The standard weight of the State Quarters is 5.670 grams and the standard diameter is .955 inches. They have reeded edges and a cupro-nickel clad composition (8.33% nickel, Balance CU) .
